Indulge yourself with a trip through history as you drive along East Iceland.
Check out our SAGA-Trails for Hrafnkelssaga or Vopnfirðingasaga, The Skriðuklaustur monastery and excavations, the Djúpivogur historical centre where you can learn about the earliest arrivals be they greek, roman or the mysterious Papar, the irish hermit monks.
It is meant that history here is older than the settlement of the Nordic people in Iceland.
The first ones could have been the Romans, looking for the legendary island of the Greek Pythias “Ultima Thule”, if not Pythias himself, but roman coins dating back to the 1st century AD were found near Djúpivogur.
A bit further south at Geithellnar the first settlers, Ingólfur Arnarson and his foster brother Hjörleifur spent the winter on their first expedition to Iceland.
Many Norwegian chieftains followed their path and claimed land in the east.
It became a refuge to the sick and poor in difficult times when famine and epidemics ravaged the country.
The monastery was closed after the reformation in 1550.
East Iceland extends from Bakkafjörður in the north to Álftafjörður in the south.Dating from that time is the beautifully carved door of Valþjófsstaður, one of the treasures in the National museum.The monastery at Skriðuklaustur was established at the end of the 14th century.As I continue to embark on my travel journey which has not been easy, I had to find my voice which was barely above a whisper some years ago. Confident enough to honestly tell other’s I’ve traveled wrong and to not make the same mistakes as I had.My loud voice is cheering and championing for novice travelers who need a little boost and motivation to take their first international trip.
