Vik I Myrdal Travel Guide

The 'Land of Fire and Ice' is home to some outstanding landscapes and Vík í Mýrdal is a town that provides that and more. Located 100 miles from Reykjavik, it is on the south shore, a seafront village and both the warmest and wettest place in Iceland.

Things to Do in Vik I Myrdal

The village itself is incredibly scenic, with a combination of interesting architecture and a fantastic backdrop of Icelandic landscapes. Walk up the hill to the lovely Reyniskirkja white church, built in 1929, and take in sweeping views across to the peninsula where you can see the Mýrdalsjökull glacier and the outline of lava columns.

Walk to Reynisfjara black sand beach and absorb the incredible landscape of salt columns, lava formations, cliffs and caves. On the beach you'll find a tall sculpture of a figure staring out to see. It represents those who make their living at sea and those on land who fear for their safety.

You can also hike to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which covers part of Katla, an active volcano being closely monitored for eruption. Hiking in this area is a nature lovers paradise.
