Seyoisfjordur East Iceland

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.

The East

Stark scenery, the inland lake of Lagarfljot and prolific birdlife with the accessible puffin platform at Borgarfjordur Eastri make the eastern region perfect for exploring.

As a child I read voraciously so the seed of travel was planted by none other than Enid Blyton. Family holidays ran the gamut from icy dips in the early summer seas of Cornwall, to camel rides in north Africa, from Times Square to Tenerife. A GAP year upon leaving school cemented the travel bug. After graduating University and before stumbling, happily, into a career in the travel industry I spent a couple of glorious years exploring southern and east Africa, large swathes of South-east Asia, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.
