Djupivogur, Iceland is a cute little town on the east coast of Iceland. It has quite a lot of character to it and a few interesting things to see during your stay. The most popular is the Langabud Museum, which gives an insight into what life in Iceland was like in the nineteenth century.

The other really interesting thing to do here that is a little off the radar is to stop in on the Hidden World Exhibition, which is basically a transformed backyard with a bunch of different and interesting artifacts. At the front you will be met by two whale skeletons. They have other different bones, rocks, wood carvings, and pieces of art scattered all through the backyard. There is also a gift shop where they sell some of the carvings and rock minerals. You will find this place on the road out toward where the Iceland Pro cruise ship docks and the lighthouse on the point. If you have a bit of extra time you should also head out and see the Eggin i Gledivik, which is really interesting to see with its egg-shaped rocks everywhere in artistic formation.

If you have a little more time, you can take the ferry out to the island of Papey for a visit, and there is also quite good bird-watching around this area, with opportunities to see the puffins who live here in quite a large colony. An exhibition on bird life in Djupivogur will give you other information on the bird watching and the types of birds you can see in the area. The island is small and can be done in a couple of hours.

Your options for hostels in Djupivogur, Iceland, will place you on the main road into the town. They have a bank, post office, swimming pool, fuel station, and a supermarket here. There is also a public toilet that you can use behind the Langabud Museum.
