Borgarfjörður Eystri

 

Borgarfjörður Eystri is located around 70 km from Egilsstaðir and is known for its great natural beauty. The scenery in the village second to none. Despite being a tiny village, with only 100 inhabitants, Borgarfjordur Eystri has every thing you’ll want to see in Iceland that you cannot otherwise find on the Ring Road.

The area is a hiker’s paradise with local people marking numerous trails, comfortable hiking huts, and a good hiking-map on the surrounding areas. Iceland’s largest puffin colonies also reside near the village and you can visit it on one of your hikes.

Borgarfjörður Eystri is thought to be the home of the Queen of Elves. You can walk to the hill Álfaborg or The Elves Castle where the queen of the Icelandic elves allegedly resides with her court.

You will have to take a detour from the popular Ring Road to get to Borgarfjorður Eystri, but for those who might have limited time and want to maximise the sightseeing – this detour is well worth it.

Authenticity

Borgarfjörður Eystri offers you a chance to experience a genuine Icelandic fishing village with a small boat fishery. You will be in contact with a close community of people renowned for their hospitality. The local folklore of the village is interesting and there are – at last count – 172 folk stories about with elves that takes place in the region.

ACTIVITIES

There is no lack of hiking opportunities in Borgarfjörður Eystri, with about 27 direct day-routes nearby. Hiking in this area is a unique experience. The mountains come in all shapes and sizes and the variety of colours is stunning. The trails wind themselves between isolated coves over colourful hills and through green valleys all the way down to the coast. Abandoned houses and ruins of ancient farms leave their mark on the surroundings.

Wildlife

Borgarfjörður Eystri is excellent for birdwatching and more than twenty species have been seen at once. Some of Iceland’s best birdwatching facilities can be found by the harbour at Hafnarhólmi and it is an excellent location to see Puffins and Kittiwakes. Then hiking around the area you might get lucky and see a herd of reindeers, not to mention the local birds that are abundant and the arctic flora characterised by its large flowers and vivacious colours.
