Hiking Trails

The hiking trails through the landscape near Djúpavík are breathtaking and it's kind of otherworldly to walk around in the area. There are not that many hikers on the trails so you can make a better bond with the nature and to yourself.

Djúpavík circle it a hiking trail which is said to be quite easy. You start to hike upwards from the old herring factory and up to the top of the cliffs where the waterfall Djúpavíkurfoss comes flowing down. From the cliff top the view is quite amazing over the factory and the fjord. After you have sat down and enjoyed the view you should walk eastwards and down the road to Djúpavík again. 

Ask the inhabitants of Djúpavík where you should walk. They will gladly tell you where you should go. You can also get the hiking map of the area at every tourist information office in the Westfjords.
