East Fjords trek

East Fjords trek
East and South Iceland
We will spend our five day hiking trip exploring Iceland's awe-inspiring East Fjords and the hidden gems of Viknaslodir, or the “Deserted Inlets”, in and near the Borgarfjordur Eystri region. There the imposing and colorful mountains meet the ocean creating deep fjords littered with secluded alcoves along magnificent coastlines. Among Icelanders the vicinity of Borgarfjordur is known for its great natural beauty and incredible hiking routes, as well as being untouched by mass-tourism. This isolated region is also considered to be a central province of the elves. In the Alfaborg fortress (Elf-hill) their queen has long resided, governing and watching over her realm. A short walk from the hotel you can find an excellent bird watching facility at Hafnarholmi, by the harbour, where you can get up close to puffins, kittiwakes and other various birds.

Get off-the-beaten-track and escape the city to this charming village in the East of Iceland with only around 100 inhabitants. Enjoy the comfort of returning to your hotel room after a long day of hiking. Relax, visit the local spa or simply just indulge in the beauty surrounding you.

Your visit to Borgarfjordur Eystri will be an unforgettable experience; the amazing views, deep fjords, wildlife, stunning lake, fishing village and its surrounding farms will stay with you for years to come. Don’t forget your camera!
