We stayed over in Eglisstadir ready for our trip at the east coast.
This was our favourite place to drive. The east and north had been really cloudy, foggy and rainy whereas the east coas was really beautiful, sunny, warm, blue skies and blue ocean just a magnificent view.
After exploring the east coast AND EVEN SPOTTING SOME REINDEER(!!! :O ) we went to Höfn. Another super sweet and cute town which is located in the south- east. From here you have the possibility for many many advantures. You can book a boat tour to a little island where you can spot puffins, or go on a glacier walking tour, in winter you can visit the ice cave, or go on a hiking tour.
The Vatnajökull National Park (which is the biggest National Park in Iceland) is just around the corner and a must visit!
There are amazing galcier landscapes and the beautiful ice lake Jökulsárlón which is located on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park.
And if you are lucky you’ll get to spot some cute seals swimming between the ice.
What you also shouldnt miss on your south-east tour through Iceland is Skaftafell it’s a preservation area in Öræfi and belongs to the Vatnajökull National Park.
