“The Eggs”, Langabúð and Audun’s Rock Collection
In Djúpavogur (37 km) you can marvel at a unique sculpture by sigurður Guðmundsson called “The Eggs”. They are numerous large boulders in the shape of eggs that have been arranged along the shoreline. You can also visit Audun’s Rock Collection and Langabúð, one of the country’s oldest stores (now housing a café and museum). Búlandstindur Mountain hovers over the town and there is a marked hiking trail to the top. Be adviced that this is a strenuous hike if you are not used to hiking mountains, but well worth the effort to enjoy the wonderful view from the top.
