Djupavik (Iceland) cruise port

Djupavik can be reached by ship, car and by plane. Arneshreppur district is served by Gjogur Airport (located on Hunafloi bay / between Strandir and Skagastrond). The airport is operated by ISAVIA (Iceland's national flight and airport operator) and serves domestic flights (connecting with Reykjavik) scheduled twice a week (winter schedule) and once a week (summer schedule).

Djupavik was settled (a family of five) in 1917 after building the salted fish salting factory (for processing cod and herring) which went bankrupt in 1919. Djupavik was again resettled in 1934 when was established Djupavik Ltd, which built a new herring factory after loaning money from Solberg Bank (Stockholm Sweden). The new plant was inaugurated in 1935 as Iceland's largest concrete building (90 m / 295 ft in length) and Europe's first fully automated fish-processing plant. After WW2 (1939-1945), herring catches started to decline. In 1954 the factory closed, and in 1968 Djupavik Ltd was dissolved. In 1984 was opened the Djupavik Hotel. The fishing factory is now serving as a museum.
