Travel Blogs from Egilsstadir

Love the Icelandic Horses!

A travel blog entry by sandy1948


I could have ridden them all day. These beautiful, gentle, friendly horses are unique to Iceland. People come from all over the world to ride them. I would come back just to ride them again!!

This was the first hostel where we actually met some other women travelers. These women from Germany, Switzerland and France came to spend the week …

Hofn to Husey along the fjord

A travel blog entry by sandy1948


This morning, we decided to go to a small place for a Viking breakfast. But first, we need to explore the last of Hofn before we could have breakfast and coffee! The breakfast was disappointing, but we walked around the area (site for some Viking movies); then we set off to explore the countryside between Hofn and our next hostel, in Husey.

East Iceland

A travel blog entry by maxieduncan


We completed the Ring Road today driving on the southern border of Vatnajoekull National Park with it's numerous glaciers putting on an impressive show. The highlight of this section was Jökulsárlón a lake full of icebergs from one of the glaciers. We grabbed some lunch at Höfn before the sun came out for the drive up through the Eastern Fjords to Egilsstadir where we started our drive two weeks ...

Day 4: Hot Springs and Other Things

A travel blog entry by evan.cole.73


... hot springs close to Reykjavik, this one had relatively few people and was still quite nice. During my two hour stay I met two other American guys around my age who were apparently on the exact same drive-around-Iceland trip I was, except they went in the opposite direction. We talked for a while, I turned into a warm prune, and eventually left for the East.

The road ahead cut through a vast expanse of frozen plains, with distant icy mountains ...

Day Four: All About the Ice

A travel blog entry by rachels694


... with black stripped icebergs. Our next stop we arranged a zodiac boat tour of the famous glacier lagoon of Jokulsarlon. Jökulsárlón (literally "glacial river lagoon") is a large glacial lagoon in southeast Iceland. It evolved into a lagoon after the glacier started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The lake has grown since then at varying rates because of melting of the Icelandic glaciers. The lagoon now stands 0.93 miles away from ...

    This hostel is really out in the middle of nowhere, miles down a dirt road. Incredibly isolated, but worth the drive. Amazingly beautiful setting in the open open field near the confluence of two rivers flowing to the sea. Best thing here is riding the Icelandic horses. Small rooms, no sink in the room. No water pressure. Don't plan a shower here! We enjoyed the European women who were spending a week riding.
