Welcome to Egilsstaðir


Egilsstaðir’s saving grace is its proximity to lovely Lagarfljót, Iceland’s third-largest lake. Since Saga times, tales have been told of a monster living in its depths. If you want to do some beastie-hunting, or explore the forest on the lake’s eastern bank, Egilsstaðir makes a good base.
