Welcome to ports of Múlaþing – East Iceland!
East Iceland is a region of natural phenomena with glaciers, forests, bird cliffs, vast expanses, deserts, majestic mountains and narrow fjords. In every valley or fjord, you can find cascading waterfalls and beautiful rivers. The ocean air and highland scents give you a fresh feeling that makes you want to spend even more time out in the wilderness! East Iceland is a gem of natural wonders and history and it is a region rich in relics from times long past.
The three ports of Múlaþing are located on the East Coast of Iceland and each of them is unique with good access to the natural gems of the area. Access to the beautiful sites in East Iceland is constantly evolving and a great deal of development has taken place.
Ships arriving from the Faroe Islands, Norway or the UK choose Seyðisfjörður or Djúpivogur as the first or last port on their stopover in Iceland.
Seyðisfjörður port is a very good harbour by nature as the fjord is deep, there are no skerries and it‘s sheltered by high mountains.
In Djúpivogur, cruise ship arrivals have increased steadily in recent years, either arriving at the dock in Gleðivík or anchoring outside the harbour. Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon can be reached from Djúpivogur within two and half hours by bus.
Bakkagerdi port in Borgarfjordur eystri receives only smaller vessels anchored outside the harbour. The puffin in Hafnarhólminn is one of the big attractions of the area and the hiking trails “Víknaslóðir” between Borgarfjörður and Seyðisfjörður as well.
In Mulathing we also have the international and domestic airport in Egilsstadir. German airline Condor will start a weekly flight from Frankfurt to Egilsstadir next spring. The airport also has daily domestic flights between Reykjavík and Egilsstadir year-round.
