Day 2: Hrútafjörður-Djúpavík | In Desolate Ruins

On day two of our motorcycle tour, we’ll travel to one of the most remote and breathtaking areas of Iceland – Strandir. Our ride will take us through rugged landscapes and along the stunning northern coast of the Westfjords, as we make our way toward Djúpavík.

Djúpavík was once one of the busiest villages in Iceland, but its prosperity was short-lived. The village is located at Reykjarförður on the east coast of the Westfjords and was never an ideal site for a town. In 1934, a herring factory was built, which brought some economic boom. However, in 1944, the herring stock started declining and vanished altogether in 1948. All the residents moved away, and the buildings were abandoned to rot. These abandoned factories are like works of art, with cracked concrete and rusty steel, and they are a perfect photographic opportunity.

Our ride will take us to the very end of a rideable road in Ófeigsfjörður. From there, it’s only possible to walk the rest of the area. We’ll take some time to explore the stunning surroundings and take in the natural beauty of this remote region.

This pool is a perfect place to relax and take a hot nourishing dip, with a beautiful view of the surrounding coastline. After our soak, we’ll return to Djúpavík, where we’ll spend the night.

Djúpavík and its surroundings offer a perfect blend of natural beauty and fascinating history, with the abandoned herring factories providing a unique glimpse into Iceland’s past. Take some time to explore the area and soak in the stunning surroundings and get ready for another day of adventure on our motorcycle tour.

As we ride along, we’ll see some of the most remote and untouched areas of Iceland, with views of rugged landscapes, deep fjords, and sweeping valleys. This is a trail that almost no one travels on, providing a unique and unforgettable experience of Iceland’s natural beauty.

Here, we’ll enjoy the natural pool at Hellulaug, a geothermal hot spring located right on the beach.
