Silversea Luxury Cruises To Djupivogur

Djupivogur

Situated in the southeastern part of Iceland, the little town of Djupivogur is one of the easiest spots in Iceland to reach from northern Europe. Evidence of this is apparent in the presence of a trading post built here as early as the 16th century. In the modern era, fishing is still important, but tourism is increasing more and more. Nearby Bulandsnes has a renowned bird sanctuary, and Papey Island just slightly to the east, is home to large colonies of Atlantic Puffins. View more

Djupivogur is also not too far from Vatnajökull National Park. Covering 13% of Iceland, it is Europe’s largest national park. Boat rides are a popular activity from Djupivogur across the lagoon to see the Vatnajökull glacier’s several tongues in different shades of white, translucent and blue in the ice.

Papey Island Boat Tour

Visit a small island in East Iceland and experience the magnificient unspoilt nature.


Papey Island

Board a small boat and for a 50-minute boat scenic tour from Djupivogur to Papey Island. This is the largest island off the east coast of Iceland, about .8 square miles (2 square kilometres) in area, and the only populated one until a few decades ago. There was only one farm there and a church built in 1902. The highest lying point of the island, Hellisbjarg, is only 190 feet (58 metres) high.


On the island you will have a chance to walk around see the magnificent bird cliffs, seals, the old wooden Church and hear about the history of the island. It is presumed the island was inhabited by Irish monks, when the Nordic settlement of Iceland started. The monks were called "Papar", hence the name of the island.


Board the small boat for picturesque 50-minute boat ride back to Djupivogur.


Please note: This tour requires guests to walk for about 600 yards (500 metres) to explore the island. However, to walk around the island guests must be able to climb up/down a wooden staircase of about 70 stairs then trek on an unpaved pathway up/down an incline for several metres. This is not a long walk but it is not a gentle walk either and is only suitable for those who are fit. Guests unable to walk up/downhill and up/down staircases may remain on the boat but will miss the island visit. Boat utilised is a local multi-purpose vessel and not a deluxe cruiser. Bench seating accommodates up to 15. Stepping on/off the boat might be challenging. Guests should dress in layers according to the local weather conditions and bring their camera. Participation is very limited due to the size of the boat; all seating is used to accommodate as many guests as possible. We recommend you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.Note that as it is a boat ride, water may splash on the boat so it is recommended to wear a waterproof outer layer.
