The eggs are very beautiful. It's interesting to learn more about the local birds of the region. The locals are fed up about people pooing everywhere in Djupivogur though. Please don't take a poop while being around the eggs. There's a public toilet that's free...More

Whilst staying in Djupivogur we visited the eggs as they are a main tourist spot in the town. They were interesting to see but they felt rather repetitive; I'm not sure that they were to scale as they all looked much the same as each...More

Even for a non birder, this was a pleasant walk and interesting. Cruise ship overwhelmed the local village. Outdoor exhibits are best options since anything inside is elbow to elbow.

The eggs are unique down by the harbor and like any tourist, I took a picture. But the best place in town is the Gallery Freevilli which has whale and dolphin skeletons and one of a kind souvenirs. That was worth the stop.

There are several places to explore near the harbour. The harbour itself is full of colourful boats and very sheltered. Along the waterfront is a show of large granite eggs which have been artistically produced and imported from China. Very unusual. In the same area...More

A number of granite eggs line the harbor which is kinda cool. They represent the birds of Iceland. Not much else to do here but take a look and a few photos.
