The East and Southeast

Home to lagoons dotted with icebergs and rolling hillsides, this is the area for walking and boat trips.

While the east of Iceland is home to dramatic fjord scenery and steep mountains, the southeast is home to lagoons dotted with icebergs such as Jokulsarlon and is the countries favourite region for walking.

Bird watching, horse-riding and hiking are particularly popular in the east and boat trips amongst the icebergs is the main activity of the southeast.
