Djúpavík was bursting with life from 1935-1954 when a herring factory was operated in the biggest concrete building in Iceland. Today, this building is used to house an exhibition of the herring years as well as various other events, such as the famous free concert of Sigur Rós in 2006. The only inhabitants today are a family who run the hotel along with the staff and they offer tours through the old factory.
