East Iceland in detail


There's a quality range of hotels and guesthouses scattered throughout the region. Egilsstaðir has the lion's share, but Seyðisfjörður has a growing range of options and a lovelier setting (both towns are in hot demand on Wednesday nights in summer, as the Denmark-bound ferry sails out of Seyðisfjörður on Thursday mornings). There are also some wonderfully remote options such as Húsey farm, Laugarfell, and the innovative Wilderness Center.
