了解 东部冰岛

Stretching from the wide Eastfjords mountain range, set with many small fjords, through the fertile Fljotsdalsherad district and towards the highlands, East Iceland is a vast area of incredible nature, striking contrasts and fascinating history and culture.

East Iceland is characterised by a large number of fjords, surrounded by high villages. Fishing villages can be found by most of them.

From Seydisfjordur a ferryboat goes to Scandinavia, and the town also hosts the popular annual festival LungA. Neskaupsstadur features two highly popular annual festivals, Neistaflug and Eistnaflug, as well as being the home to a highly interesting museum and close to fascinating nature.

The main airport of East Iceland is in Egilsstadir, the largest town of the East and its main center for service, transport and administration.

Further inland is the fertile agricultural district Fljotsdalsherad (see the link above). Natural birchwoods are in the area, the most famous being Hallormsstadaskogur, the largest forrest in Iceland. Big rivers run through the district and by their estuaries many seals may be found.

Up in the mountains is also the Karahnjukar Hydroelectric Power Station, the construction of which led to hot debates and continues to do so. The station serves the alumnium smelter by Reydarfjordur.

The impressive mountain Snaefell is close by, Iceland's highest freestanding mountain. East of Snaefell is the highland oasis Eyjabakkar, one of the largest nesting place for the pink footed goose in the world.  

Of particular cultural note in Fljotsdalsherad is the cultural and history center Skriduklaustur. In the middle ages a monastery stood there, and in the 20th century, Icelandic author Gunnar Gunnarsson lived there. Gunnar wrote such masterworks as Adventa (e. The Good Shepherd), Svartfugl (The Black Cliffs), Saga Borgaraettarinnar (Guest the One-Eyed, made into the Danish film Borgslægtens history in 1919) and the autobiographical novel cycle Fjallkirkjan ('The Church on the Mountain' published in English as Ships in the Sky and The Night and the Dream).

Other notable attractions of the beautiful Fljotadalsherad district, of which there are many, are listed under the Egilsstadir section.

Reindeers roam the mountains of East Iceland and a large number of migratory birds land near Hofn in  Hornafjordur, in the Southeast, on their way from Skotland, returning back to Scotland in late summer.

Vatnajokull, Europe's largest glacier stretches to the boarders of East Iceland.
