The boundaries of this area are drawn between the towns Siglufiord and Thorshofn. The western part of the Northeast is more densely populated than the sparsely populated eastern part. The landscapes are very varied, differently large mountainous areas divide the lowlands. A large part of the area includes the volcanic zone (The Icelandic Graben) with many hyaloclastite mountains, craters, volcanoes and high temperature areas.

It contains a great number of places of interest and natural beauty, the vastest lava area of the country and one of the two dangerous earthquake regions. Road # 1 passes through it. Recreational activities on offer are quite interesting and varied. Driftwood has played an important role all around this otherwise woodless country ever since it was settled. The northern coastline is “white” with driftwood from Siberia.

Jokulsargljufur (Vatnajökull National Park)
Jökulsárgljúfur is the northernmost part of Vatnajökull National Park, with separate boundaries, but geographically connected to the rest of the park by the glacial river Jökulsá á Fjöllum. The river's source is in Vatnajökull glacier, near the subglacial volcano Bárdarbunga.
Jökulsárgljúfur literally transcribes as Glacial-River-Canyon. This canyon is 25 km long, 500 m wide and in many places 100-120 m deep, making it one of the deepest and most breath-taking canyons in Iceland. Jökulsárgljúfur is also known for its series of waterfalls: Selfoss, Dettifoss, Hafragilsfoss and Réttarfoss.

The park's visitor centre, Gljúfrastofa, is located in Ásbyrgi, along with a fairly large and developed campground. A more primitive campground is located in Vesturdalur, which is midway between Dettifoss and Ásbyrgi.
Ásbyrgi can be visited any time of the year, although services may be limited during winter. Dettifoss and Vesturdalur are located at higher altitude and therefore subjected to snow cover and road conditions.

Langanes reaches almost 40 km into the ocean to the northeast. It is fairly wide to the south, gets narrower to the north and ends in a narrow cliff-point called Fontur. The part of Langanes that lies south of Þórshöfn is called Framnes (front cape), the part to Eiđisskarđ is called Miđnes (mid cape) and the part outwards from there Útnes (out cape). All the farms on Útnes are now desolated.

The landscape on the cape varies from marshes, gravel plains and stony hills. It is fairly grassy in places and good for sheep grazing. Sheep’s are kept on the farms still in existence on the mid- and front cape. Around Langanes are good fishing grounds and fishing has always been a core activity. A wide variety of birds nest there too. The land has traditionally offered great benefits to its settlers such as eiderdown, driftwood and fowl hunting in the cliffs. There are also examples of people coming from neighboring rural districts such as Þistilfjörđur and wider in the spring to cure scurvy and other similar ills. Rare plants grow in Langanes.
Birdlife: Langanes is an impressive bird watching area. Separated from Skoruvík cliff is a pillar of rock called Stórikarl (Big man). There is the largest nesting ground of the sea-gannet in northern Iceland and many other birds next there such as the guillemot, kittiwake and fulmar. The pictures to the side show 3 common birds in and near Langanes, the kittiwake, guillemot and herring gull.
