Just 2 minutes from the centre of Djúpivogur you can drive to some small lakes near the airstip. Here you can find waders and ducks which are fouraging. Red-throated Diver are breeding in the vegetation along the swamp.
Drive from the 'ring road' of Iceland to Djúpivogur. Just South of the city centre there are some lakes. It should take around 15 minutes to get there.
