Location

Fljotsdalsherad district extends over the basin of two large rivers: Jökulsar Dal and Lagarfljot. Both merge at Heradsfloi bay a short distance from a natural paradise, Husey.

Mt. Dyrfjoll rises majestically over the community at Utherad.

Egilsstadir is situated at the point where Highway 1, and roads that lead to the fjords, converge. Egilsstaðaflugvollur is an international airport, and the regions primary airport.

The Lagarfljot River is home to the Lagarfljotsormur serpent (Laggi). It has lived there for many centuries, and frequently his head and hump have emerged from the deep triggering both fear and curiosity. It is not long since he was last spotted.

Opposite Egilsstadir on the other side of the Lagarfljot bridge is Fellabær. A popular 9-hole golf course is located at Ekkjufell.

Hallormstadarskogur, Icelands largest forest grows along the banks of the Lagarfljot River. The popular tourist destination, Atlavik, is situated there, as is the Forestry Services Trjásafn, a museum unlike any other in the world and a joy to explore.

The Institute of Gunnar Gunnarsson operates a cultural and educational centre at Skriduklaustur, in the mansion that writer Gunnar Gunnarsson built. Not far away is Hengifoss, one of Icelands highest waterfalls, sharing a columnar basalt ravine with Litlanesfoss falls.

Snæfell (1832 m) is one of the tallest mountains in Iceland, towering majestically over the Fljótsdalsherad district like a crown in natures creation.
