Austurland – region of waterfalls, glaciers and reindeer

Austurland, the enchanting eastern region of Iceland, boasts a captivating blend of picturesque fjords, rugged mountains, and cascading waterfalls. Home to the vibrant and artsy town of Seyðisfjörður, adorned with colourful wooden houses, and the awe-inspiring Vatnajökull National Park, featuring Europe’s largest glacier, the region offers an unforgettable experience for adventurers and nature lovers alike. With its exclusive reindeer population roaming wild, charming fishing villages dotting the coastline, and the lesser-known but equally mesmerizing Hengifoss and Litlanesfoss waterfalls, Austurland is a hidden gem waiting to be explored.
