The Stunning Main Port of Djupivogur

Djupivogur is a small town and municipality located on a peninsula in eastern Iceland, near the island of Papey and on the fjord Berufjörður. As of 2011, it has a population of 352.

The town is famous in Iceland for being the place with the highest temperature ever recorded in the island. 30.5 °C (87 °F) in June 1939.

By the early nineteenth century, Djúpivogur was 'a tiny port with a Danish colonial trading base'. Hans Jonatan, who had been a slave in Copenhagen, escaped there and became one of Iceland's first people of colour.
