Welcome to Vík & Around
The welcoming little community of Vík (aka Vík í Mýrdal) has become a booming hub for a very beautiful portion of the South Coast. Iceland’s southernmost town, it's also the rainiest, but that doesn't stop the madhouse atmosphere in summer, when every room within 100km seems to be booked solid. With loads of services, Vík is a convenient base for the beautiful basalt beach Reynisfjara just to the west and its puffin cliffs. There's also the rocky plateau Dyrhólaey and the volcanoes running from Skógar to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and beyond. Along the coast, white-capped waves wash up on black sands and the cliffs glow green from all that rain. Put simply, it’s pretty special.
