  • As we traveled through in Djúpivogur, we stopped briefly to admire the stone eggs. The view is really impressive and we were lucky enough to be able to marvel at the giant eggs together with a rainbow.

  • There was nothing we had planned along the East Coast for stops, so when I saw this landmark slightly off Road 1, I figured we'd stretch our legs and take a couple pictures. Unfortunately it was raining and quite dreary so we didn't stay long. A bus full of tourists arrived as we were leaving too. Would look better without the factory looking building in the background but the egg sculptures were nice. Represents the bird eggs of Iceland. Quite random but nice. If you skip it, that's fine, but there's not a whole lot on the East Coast so why not.
  • We stayed two nights at the Hotel Framtid nearby. We walked to this exhibit and then beyond almost to the lighthouse on the other side of the cliff next to this exhibit. While this may seem like a simple piece, if you look and think about what this symbolizes, it clearly does it's job. To make one think and admire. Some may not see this. As is always true of artwork, it depends upon the viewer. We liked it a lot. And we loved Iceland.
  • Scuptures of eggs of 34 species of birds found in the region by famous Icelandic artist Sigurd Gudmundsson. Each one unique with the bird name mentioned in Icelandic and scientific name. Nice photo stop a km away from the town. Plenty of free parking at the end of the road. Nice little stroll along the promenade looking at the eggs and touching the smooth cold surfaces. And the art studio just across is worth a visit.
  • A very cute and scenic stopover! Should visit if you are nearby and have time to spare :) Ship belong to National Geographic is also spotted right next to the eggs!
  • This is a good photo/rest stop if you are driving from Hofn towards Egilsstadir. Peaceful coastline. GPS will guide you to use gravel road, it is accessible from the town Djupivogur via paved road.
