From Eglisstadir to Kirkjubaejarklaustur

Day 3


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.

  1. I have never been to Iceland, but this post makes me want to change that. Such a beautiful country. The language would be an impossibility for me, though. Anywhere that Kirkjubaejarklaustur is more than gibberish is too much for my language deficiencies.

    • Hahaha ohh I have thought the same before going there and some words are really impossible to pronounce but some are really easy and or funny as well xD
      So bank means banki tea is te and coffee is kaffi xD
      Idk what your mother tongue is but I feel like there are some words really relating to german 😀

      Oh and yes I can just totally encourage you to go there its amazing! 😍 and absolutely stunning 😉


  2. Your post reminds me of how much I haven’t seen around Europe. We often forget too look at the things that lie on our door mat, which lacking exoticism and yet are beautiful all the same.

    • Yes tbh I think it’s very expensive. I don’t know what country you are from but if you are not from Scandinavia you will probably think the same.
      Water is the only thing that’s cheap over there as they have alot of it. Especially food is pretty expensive. Even a little hotdog was 13 Euro. Which is compared to my country pretty expensive.
      If you stay at a little guesthouse the price for 1 person will be 50 euro and up per person per night. And one mango is almost 8 euro xD
      That was really crazy 😀

      • OMG, that’s off the wall expensive. A MANGO? Listen, we are from Miami Florida where we could pick mangoes off of trees for free xD. We almost cried paying 4 USD for a hot dog at a gas station. And we haven’t had a meal for two less than 30 USD, so it’s a big shock for us here in Norway. The word here is that Sweden is much cheaper (hopefully!) so we’ll get a reprieve expense wise. If the prices in Sweden are anything like IKEA, I will be very happy 🙂

      • Hahah oh you ate so right it’s crazy expensive but they are so off the of Europe they have to import everything you can find german chocolate, polish vodka, Spanish foots and french pastries. But not too much icelandic stuff.
        I think you can compare Norway prices to Iceland prices. When I was in Norway I was shocked about the prices as well xD
        Yes its true that Sweden is cheaper. I think that Sweden is the cheapest Scandinavian country so good luck! 😉
