  • During our visit to Djupivogur we were looking for a nice souvenir. We saw a recommendation for Jón Fridrik Sigurdsson (JFS Handcraft), those beautiful Icelandic manual work. We were very well received and the first thing he showed us was his enormous stone collection. Then we were allowed to admire his workshop, full of beautiful and unusual handmade souvenirs, necklaces, carvings and stones. We have spent almost an hour and listened to its special and emotional stories. What a wonderful man! And, of course, a beautiful carved wood design bought for our souvenir Cabinet.

  • We loved the cute fishing village of Djupivogur, and we're so glad we followed the reviews to Jon's shop. It's a definite must see! His personal stone garden is breathtaking, and all of his hand carve...  more »
  • We drove out to visit while in town. A large rock collection outside, and the owner will tour you around his workshop. Very nice items he's made by hand. A nice surprise  more »

  • Really wonderful gift shop and collection. Great local experience.
  • When stopping or staying in Djúpivogur, you MUST stop by and see Jón Friðrik Sigurðsson. You´ll find his house just up the road from Hótel Framtið (another place worth experiencing). You really can´t miss JFS; his house is yellow and decorated with all manner of art on the front side. Stepping into his backyard is like literally stepping into a museum, as this man has collected what has to be tens of thousands of rocks from the local valleys over the last 38 years. Not to be outdone by his amazing collection, Mr. Sigurðsson is simply a person you do not want to miss. He can tell you stories about every rock in his collection, and if you step in to his workshop, you can buy some amazing art. Carvings in stone and reindeer antler are abundant, but again, the real attraction is the owner. We traveled the entire wonderful country of Iceland, and Mr. Sigurðsson will be one of the things that we remember most. We could have stayed all day had we not had more exploring to do. PS: This guy is a HUUUUGE Manchester United fan, and if you're a Steven Gerrard fan? Forget it. Lol.
