How long does it take to get from Reykjavik to Egilsstadir?

Although it is 635 km to Egilsstadir from Reykjavik from both north and south, especially if you are in Iceland for the first time, we recommend spreading this route over two or even three days. Along the way, there are plenty of tourist attractions, both when you choose the way through the south coast, and the route through Akureyri. To cover this road without often stops, you need eight to nine hours in summer and about 10 - 12 hours in winter.

What are the main attractions near Egilsstadir?

Egilsstadir is the biggest city in this part of the country, although beautifully situated, it is not the largest tourist attraction in the region. The situation is different with the numerous villages on the Eastern Fjords, which are not only characterized by their unusual charm and location, but there are many attractions hidden among them. The strength of the east is primarily nature in the form of charming waterfalls, the largest forest on the island, and majestic mountains. Also, you will find numerous viewpoints, museums, shipwreck, excellent restaurants, the ruins of the Skriðuklaustur monasteries, and shops with unique souvenirs, as well as the home of one of the most famous Icelandic writers Gunnar Gunnarsson.

Do the hotels in Egilsstadir have their restaurants?

Most hotels have restaurants where you can eat both lunch and dinner and breakfast in the morning. Chefs often prepare meals using local ingredients from sheep farming or fisheries in the Eastfjords. Usually, restaurants have a separate or shared space that also serves as a bar.
