Djupivogur, Iceland Cruise Port

Djupivogur is a small town in the district of Djupavoshreppur, which lies in the Southernmost part of Eastern Iceland. The town is located on a peninsula on this Eastern part of Iceland. Djupivogur covers an estimated area of about 1,133 km2 and hosts a population of about 470 people. The town has a long history of trading that dates back to around 1589. This long trade history awarded the town with a small port that acted as a trading base for Danish colonialists in the early 19th century. Currently, the main industries in the town are fishing and tourism, with the latter growing steadily due to the natural beauty that is evident in the region and the mild weather that is a product of the town's proximity to the Gulf Stream. Featured below are some of the experiences one can have after cruising to Djupivogur, Iceland:
 
  • Fans of art should not miss to pay a visit to Eggin I Gledivik on the town's coast about 1km from the village. The site hosts artwork made of outdoor sculptures that consist of 34 eggs that were sculpted by the famous Icelandic artist and sculptor Sigurdur Gudmundsson.
     
  • For those interested in the cultural history of the region, a visit to Langabuo would be quite rewarding. It is the oldest house in Djupivogur having been built in 1790, but was renovated and now serves as a heritage museum. Displays include sculptures and other handicrafts.
     
  • Boat tours offered in the town are also a great way to appreciate the beauty of the region. Apart from viewing the landscapes, the boat tours of Papey Island also offer the opportunity to appreciate the Papey birds and seals that are characteristic of the region.
     
  • The town offers access to stunning landscapes and features. One such feature is the pyramid shaped mountain Bulandstindur that stands out strongly from the fjords, here visitors can enjoy climbing the Icelandic mountain that reaches 1,069m above sea level. In addition, the mountain has cultural significance.
