Vík í Mýrdal

Vík í Mýrdal is the southernmost seaside village and one that does not have a harbour. Not to be outdone, Vík is famous for its amphibious boats which enable the fishermen to drive out to sea and this also provides an excellent solution for boat trips from Vík.

The coastline is dramatic, jagged and stunning with formations such as Dyrhólaey, Reynisdrangar and the infamous Reynisfjara beach. This beauty does not come without its dangers when the tide of the ocean is at its most active. Please be careful in this area as the ocean has taken a victim or two on Reynisfjara beach.

The service station, wool and souvenir shops on the main road make for a relaxing stop halfway between Reykjavík and Höfn. Many outdoor activities are offered from this pretty village, including paragliding, sightseeing flights and dogsledding.
