Iceland - East Iceland (Chapter)
This is the East Iceland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Iceland guidebook.
As far as you can get from the country’s capital, Iceland’s impressively varied and sparsely populated east doesn’t announce itself as loudly as other parts of the country, preferring subtle charms over big-ticket attractions. The spectacular fjords, scenic hiking trails, fascinating geology (including an abundance of stones and minerals) and friendly villages of the east are some of Ice-land’s unsung treasures.
- experience the tranquil isolation of ruin-strewn Mjóifjörður, verdant Skálanes or horse-happy Húsey
- marvel over the magnificent mineral collection in Stöðvarfjörður
- drive the hair-raising but spectacular mountain pass near Oddsskarð from Eskifjörður to Neskaupstaður
