Vik, Iceland

Vik is a lovely little town, placed between high hills that give it a very secluded and cosy feeling.

The town gas station is a sure stop for all travellers that continue eastwards through the Myrdalssandur, a big plain of sand and left by numerous glacial floods.

The black beach of Vík is one of the loveliest ones that are easily reached, with a panoramic view of the special rock formation just off the coast. Colonies of artic terns and puffins can be seen at the west end (right side as facing the ocean) of the beach.

In the neighbourhood of this little town is also the road leading to Dyrholaey, a stone arch on the shore that is big enough to fit boats
