Description

Discover the extraordinary nature of East Iceland on this fantastic five-hour small-group excursion. Those eager to experience an unforgettable adventure exploring the incredible hidden gems this region offers should book this sightseeing tour now. 

You will start this small-group sightseeing excursion with a pick-up by a friendly guide from the Djupivogur harbor. Your guide will drive you through the center of Djupivogur town to an outdoor sculpture, known as Eggin i Gledivik, by Sigurdur Gudmundsson, an Icelandic artist.

The sculpture consists of 34 eggs lined up along the coastline, reflecting Iceland's connection to nature. 

Your guide will take you to other points of interest in and around Djupivogur. The Djupivogur lighthouse is on a rocky cliff overlooking the calm waters of Berufjordur fjord. Its tower is painted orange, contrasting with the surrounding mountains and creating a picture-perfect scene.

The JFS Handcraft and Stone Garden in Djupivogur is a small, locally-owned garden that offers handicrafts and handmade stone artwork. Here, you can view beautifully-made stonework and purchase souvenirs to take back home as a memory. 

You can also stop at the oldest house in Djupivugor town, built in the year 1780. It is now a cultural center housing sculptures, a coffee shop with delicious handmade cakes and displays, and a heritage museum about the Icelandic way of life.

If you want to learn more about Iceland's people during your Eastfjords tour, Djupivugor and the surrounding area are rife with the local culture. 

Along with the sights of Djupivugor, this tour also visits the Fossardalur valley, a beautiful area further up Berufjordur, about 11 miles (18 kilometers) from the town. This area boasts picturesque scenery of pristine waterfalls flowing through rugged canyons.

Your drive continues across a mountain pass to the Breiddalur valley, where you can see abandoned farms and hidden waterfalls. On your way back to Djupivugor, marvel at the rugged, rocky coastline and stop at a black sand beach to enjoy the beautiful views.

The striking pyramid-shaped Bulandstindur mountain nearby is perfect for taking photos and enjoying nature. According to the locals, the peak can grant wishes on the year's longest day.

After a fantastic five-hour excursion, your guide will take you back to the Djupivogur harbor. 

Don't miss the chance to immerse yourself in Djupivogur and its scenic surroundings, including some of East Iceland's hidden gems, by booking this five-hour small-group tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
