Welcome to Djupivogur
Djupivogur is a lonely fishing village at the southern end of the Eastfjords with inspiring landscape.
The pyramid shaped Bulandstindur mountain towering over the town is considered one of Iceland’s most beautiful mountains.
The village is nestled between deep fjords, bays and lagoons with rich birdlife. Papey, the largest island off the East Coast, boasts of Iceland’s oldest wooden church and a variety of birds and seals.
Djupivogur is one of the oldest trading posts in Iceland and was established by the Danish in the 16th century. Langabud, the oldest building in town from 1790, is the town’s cultural centre and features a Heritage Museum dedicated to its past.
Today the village has 400 inhabitants and is a member of the Cittaslow slow food movement.
Its proximity to the mighty Vatnajokull glacier adds to the popularity of Djupivogur as a port.
The most popular shore excursions are to the outlet glaciers and glacier lagoons of Hoffellsjokull and Jokulsarlon in the South East.
