Eystrahorn is a steep 756 m. high mountain in the southeast part of Iceland. The mountain is mostly made up of gabbro and granophyre and precious minerals have been found there, such as gold, silver and mercury.
Eystrahorn mountain is equally as impressive as it´s famous neighbor, Vestrahorn (Stokksnes) mountain, but for some reason doesn’t get nearly as much attention as Vestrahorn (appr.40 km.away)
The area between the mountains Vestrahorn and Eystrahorn is called, “Lón,” meaning lagoon and sports an incredibly varied birdlife. It is the first stop after a very long flight for millions of migratory birds. It is usually packed with birdlife and quite an impressive stop.
