The East Iceland region
East Iceland is a magical region of natural phenomena, with glaciers, forests, bird cliffs, vast expanses, deserts, majestic mountains and narrow fjords.
In every valley or fjord you can find cascading waterfalls and beautiful rivers.
Proud hordes of reindeer's roam the highlands and mountains but lower down in winter time.
The ocean air and highland scents give you a fresh feeling that makes you want to spend even more time out in the wilderness! East Iceland is a gem of natural wonders and history and it is a region rich in relics from times long past.
All year around you can enjoy fine local dining, comfortable and modern hotels and guesthouses, fabulous highland experiences, regional festivals, museums, theater, concerts, cultural centers...
Come and see for yourself; experience and enjoy!
Djúpivogur is situated on the peninsula between Hamarsfjörður and Berufjörður fjords.
Local history extends even further back than Iceland´s actual settlement, for instance to Irish monks and hermits who came to the island of Papey.
The history of the village itself blends with the history of trading, as the village became an important centre of Icelandic trading over 400 years ago, in 1589. In additon fish has always been important to the Djúpivogur area. Today, the fishing industry is still the main source of employment in the village; however, tourism has increased rapidly in recent years.
One of Iceland´s most beautiful mountains, the symmetric pyramid of Búlandstindur, can easily be recognised from the village and from most spots around the fjord of Berufjörður. Reaching 1069 m above sea level, this symbol of the Djúpivogur region is belived by many to instil mystical powers, while many others will at least enjoy the challenging hike and superb view from the top.
