Welcome to Merry Bay
This small town, situated at the mouth of Berufjörður fjord, on the south coast, dates back to the 16th century when the Danes established a trading post there.
In fact, a store from the olden days, Langabúð, can still be found in the town and many of the oldest houses (1788-1818) have been restored to their original glory. The scenic beauty of the surrounding area makes Djúpivogur a popular tourist spot and boat trips to the island of Papey are one of its highlights.
Djúpivogur is also home to one of Iceland’s more offbeat attractions: the Eggs of Merry Bay (Eggin í Gleðivík), 34 granite eggs representing various local bird species. Each oversized egg, created by local artist Sigurður Guðmundsson, is atop its own pedestal along in the town’s harbour.View East Iceland
