A visit to the fishing village of Djúpivogur may feel like a journey back in time, especially when you tour the 1790 Langabúð house museum. The town's cultural center is in a former warehouse home to folk crafts and works by Icelandic sculptor Ríkarður Jónsson. At the coffee shop, warm up with hot coffee and homemade cakes. About one kilometer from town, a remarkable landscape sculpture by Icelandic artist Sigurður Guðmundsson consists of 34 stone eggs set along the water's edge. Stop by the Old Church and if you are in town at lunchtime, head for the Hótel Framtíð—we recommend the mussels with a shot of the local schnapps, Brennivín.
