Endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, such as bathing in geothermal pools and enjoying the colorful Northern Lights in the winter and the Midnight Sun in the summer.
Egilsstadir is the center in East Iceland where you can enjoy all year around fine local dining, comfortable and modern hotels, fabulous highland experiences, regional festivals, museums, theatre, concerts and cultural centers. East Iceland is a magical region of natural phenomena, with glaciers, forests, bird cliffs, vast expanses, deserts, majestic mountains and narrow fjords.
