We at Mjoeyri know East Iceland like the backs of our hands, and we plan and help individuals and groups organizing hiking expedition all over the area. The area around Eskifjörður and Mjóeyri has a variety of hiking and walking paths suitable for all experience and fitness levels.

There’s no place better to start and finish a good hike, as our facilities at Mjoeyri.


Hiking Week

Walking week is one of the highlights of the east fjords hiking year and has something for everyone. It takes place in the last week of June when Iceland is bathed in 24 hour daylight.

There are hikes for all kinds of walkers. Families and those who just want to soak in the spectacular Icelandic scenery can enjoy family walks and nature activities. For the more committed walker there are longer and more challenging walks, with the big event being the five mountains in five days challenge. At this time of year the mountains are still topped by snow. The views are spectacular all year round. Walkers who do the five receive a commemerative photo and join the list of Fjallagarpar Fjarðabyggðar (Mountain Champions). You need a reasonable level of fitness, good boots and clothing, but no crampons or other equipment are necessary – this is definitely hiking, not mountaineering.

The walks are led by experienced local guides and well attended by the local community, making them a great way to meet the locals. The weather tends to be dry and sunny at this time of year, but that is not guaranteed and warm and waterproof clothing should be carried.

Most evenings have entertainment, which has included everything from Icelandic Eurovision singers to a cosy evening with Icelandic storytellers, a visiting Norwegian violinist and singing along with the local band. A small band of pirates (3) has been known to sail down the fjord to lead children on a treasure hunt.
