After going as far east as we could go in the south part of the island, we then worked our way north along the east part of the island – called the East Fjords. It’s an isolated area, with only a smattering of fishing villages. Of course tourists like us pass through on our way around the ring road – so there are tourist attractions like the egg art in Djúpivogur.
Or Petra’s stone collection in Stöðvarfjörður. It appears that Petra collected stones all her life until there wasn’t room for anything else inside or outside her house. Petra passed away but her house and stone collection remain as a tourist attraction.
