We suggest booking an add-on tour (or transfer) that will meet you at the airport (based on 8.30 am morning arrival in Egilsstaðir) and drop you off at your hotel after the tour. Suggestions are below.
Overnight stay in Egilsstaðir for the next 2 nights.
Egilsstaðir serves as the central hub with the regional airport. The area around Egilsstaðir is gaining a name for itself as an excellent food culture destination, and many day tours involve meeting locals and taking part in their daily life. Hallormsstadaskogur is an impressive forest in a country otherwise almost barren of trees. Beyond that lies the eastern highland wilderness with heaths, mountains and wild rivers. This is the home of Iceland’s only wild reindeer population.
