If you need a car to travel around East-Iceland, Budget car hire can provide a good car for you for a very good price.

Egilsstaðir has the population of approximately 2500 people and is located by a lake called Lagarfljót. Some people believe that a cryptid serpent lives in the lake, just as in the Scottish lake Loch Ness. This belief originated from Icelandic folktales and legends published around 1862 but sightings have been logged since 1345. Rent a car from Budget to drive around the lake and see if you can catch a glimpse of the famous monster.

Close to Egilsstaðir there is a very beautiful waterfall called Hengifoss, which is one of the tallest waterfalls in Iceland. Below it is another waterfall called Litlanesfoss. Park your Budget car in the parking area if you want to take a short walk and see the beautiful waterfalls from a shorter distance.

If you are interested in Icelandic history and archaeology, take a drive to Skriðuklaustur. This place used to be a monastery, the last catholic monastery established in Iceland. In 2000, archaeologist Steinunn Kristjánsdóttir started working on excavating and examining the area of 1500m2 around Skriðuklaustur.
