Egilsstaðir lies on the banks of the Lagarfljot river in the east of Iceland. Established in 1947 on the site of a farm by the same name, the town is the area’s main service centre with a population of approximately 2,500. Iceland’s third-largest lake, Lagarfljot, lies close to the town, with a surface area of 53 sq km, and is said to be inhabited by its own Loch Ness-type monster known as Lagarfljotsormurinn. The largest forest in Iceland, Hallormsstadarskogur, and one of the highest waterfalls, the 128-metre Hengifoss, are also situated close to the lake.
