Egilsstadir Saga Easti

Egilsstadir Saga Easti
East and South Iceland


Discover the incredible wild beauty of East Iceland. Even among Icelanders this part of the interior is a well-kept secret. The surefooted Icelandic horse is the best way of transportation to discover the untamed nature.

Jón Thor, our former associate for many years, is back along with Hjalti Jóhannsson and their staff and they will make sure that this will be a tour you will never forget.

The ride ascends from sea level to the great highland plateau where vegetation and landscape bear an arctic character. Hrafnkelsdalur valley is where the great Saga of Hrafnkel unfolded during the Middle Ages. Gigantic Hafrahvammagljúfur Canyon is an unforgettable sight and a witness to the power of nature. The ride leads past Mt. Snæfell – the second highest mountain in Iceland. A vehicle then takes us to Europe´s largest glacier, Vatnajökull Glacier, where we spend some time at the rim of the huge icecap.

We enjoy watching wild geese and herds of reindeer roaming free in their natural pastures. We also enjoy a number of beautiful waterfalls until we reach green meadows again.
