Your excursion into the East Fjords begins at the pier where you'll board a motorcoach for the scenic drive to Reydarfjordur, a quiet little village that lies at the bottom of the largest fjord on the east coast of Iceland. Enjoy the leisurely ride as you travel through the town of Seydisfjordur and out into the picturesque countryside of breathtaking mountains that sweep down to the sea. Surrounded by beautiful mountains on one side and gently rolling hills on the other sits the settled town of Reydarfjordur. Here you'll disembark to visit the War Years Museum. Established to show visitors what life was like during the occupation, the museum's exhibits include war relics and displays that illustrate Iceland's contribution to the war effort. Back in your motorcoach, you'll travel next to Eskifjordur, established as a trading post in 1786. Sheltered by Holmatindur Mountain, this charming town is home to many fascinating attractions. One of the first places you'll visit is the Maritime Museum. Located inside a well-preserved trading house built in 1816, the Museum is filled with boats, supplies and necessary fishing gear, plus offers a realistic picture of how local fishermen made their living off the sea. Next, you'll walk to one of the many 19th century dock houses that dot the area and sit down for a typical Icelandic lunch grilled lamb, with tastings of shark, dried fish, schnapps, and other refreshments including fresh Icelandic water.
