Vík í Mýrdal Travel Guide: 76 reviews and 186 photos

19th June 2004 (Saturday)

was my first stop using The Omnibus Pass. This is a scenic village in the south of Iceland.
Vik i Myrdal is also known as VIK but there's also a small village in the NORTH of Iceland called Vik, where many VT members wrongly put as Vik i Myrdal !
I spent 1 night here at The Youth Hostel. Had ample times to explore this village; Walking along the black sandy beaches. Climbing up the hill to see some puffins, disappointedly none to be seen.
There's also a small church perched on a hill in Vik i Myrdal, as the photo on the left. See the interiors of the church from this link :
To make a better understanding of my photos, I shall present the photos that I took around Vik i Myrdal by these pages : [Please click]

PAGE 1 : On this page, you can see my first few photos in Vik ! As I arrived & also after checking in, I walked back down to the main village capturing all the sights along the way...

PAGE 2 : On this 2nd page, you can see the sights along the beautiful Vik beach ! Awesome ! Black sandy beaches...The Reynisdrangur is a sight in Vik that you guys wouldn't want to miss...Please take a look !

PAGE 3 : On this page, you can see the craggy cliff that I climbed up to; The Icelandic horse that I saw & the path that I took in reaching the top of the cliff ! Amazing views !

PAGE 4 : More amazing views from the top of the cliff; seeing The Reynisdrangur from the top of the cliff which was so amazing for me ! Also, the views overlooking Vik i Myrdal from the cliff top is so surreal...
The last pic on this page, you can see my sweet memory in leaving Vik : My Luggage !

PAGE 5 : My 4 photos around Vik i Myrdal taken with my digital camera !

    Amazing scenery. And your photos are great! I love the view of the black sand - not sure if I'd like to sunbath there :-)

    Well you would not have to go far to see the puffins. If yu go to the Dyrholaey afte I think 20th of june you will see them or if you fly out to the Westmanna Islands there you will deffenatly see them
