Hotel Reservations in Egilsstadir, East Iceland and surrounding areas
Egilsstadir is a town in east Iceland on the banks of Lagarfljót river. 

In 2007, the town had over 2,300 inhabitants. 

The town is young, even by Icelandic standards where urbanization is a fairly recent trend compared to mainland Europe. It was established in 1947 as an effort by the surrounding rural districts who felt the need for a service center in the region. They intentionally chose a spot in the land of the Egilsstaðir farm (which the town was named after) near the bridge over Lagarfljót because that is a spot where all the main roads of the region meet, Route 1 as well as the main routes to the Eastfjords.  Today, Egilsstaðir has grown to become the largest town of east Iceland and its main service, transportation and administration center.
