Are you the sort of traveler who likes planning every tiny detail of your vacation? Or would you prefer to pick up a rental car and take things as they come? However you like to go about it, there are some basics about Egilsstadir Airport that you can't go without.
Head straight from the landing strip to the East Iceland Heritage Museum. This sight is one of the main reasons travelers come here. Lagarfljót is worth hopping out of the car for too. Once you've crossed those off your list, take some time to drop by the Minjasafn Austurlands.
