Welcome to Djúpivogur

Djúpivogur (dyoo-pi-vor) is actually one of the oldest ports in the country – it’s been around since the 16th century, when German merchants brought goods to trade. The last major excitement was in 1627: pirates from North Africa rowed ashore, plundering the village and nearby farms, and carrying away dozens of slaves.

These days the town has embraced the Cittaslow movement ('Slow Cities'; www.cittaslow.org), an offshoot of the Slow Food initiative. Djúpivogur is the only Icelandic member of the Cittaslow network, whose objectives are to promote and spread the culture of good living.
