TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Eyvindara Egilsstadir
We stayed is an wonderful little cabin while at Eyvindara Guesthouse. The room had a small kitchenette, a table, and two single beds just what we needed. The bathroom was a hoot as it was very long and very narrow but it was neat and clean and had a nice warm showers, again just what we needed. The only negative was in the cabin there was no internet connection but otherwise the place was great.

Egilsstadir is a fairly nondescript small town with not much to see, it is however a convenient service stop, with bank, tourist information, supermarkets etc. I decide that I cannot face another night of noodles or cup soup warmed up over my camping stove (there are unfortunately no cooking facilities in the campsite), so head to the petrol station which also has a restaurant attached, and order a quite tasty burger which comes with garlic sauce and mushrooms.
Our next adventure took us to a walk at Dimmuborgir (dark city). This is another Icelandic moonscape with amazing rock formations and views.
The walk first takes us to a formation known as Kirkja (the church) for obvious reasons.
There are lots of other bizarre lava formations here, including the big one that ...
... old lava flows with no vegetation, just lava rocks thrown all over on both sides. As we got closer to Egilsstadr the countryside turned into a scene that looked like Switzerland. Green and many small waterfalls on both sides of the road. What a contrast from what we were seeing during the first half of the day.
This is being written at 4 in the morning. The sun is out and the sky is clear. But it seems it is high noon. You go to bed and the sun is up. ...
... which to my (very small) surprise was entirely frozen over. I drove around to the other side, where there was a small town with a visitor center. I learned from the attendant that this was the area where HBO filmed the North-of-The-Wall scenes in Game of Thrones! First destination: the cave where Jon Snow and Ygritte got it on.
Unfortunately, when I got to where that cave was supposed to be, it was just a long muddy driveway to some guy's ...
