is the southernmost coastal hamlet of the country and the only one
without a harbour. The flat, black beach south of the village was
declared one of the 10 most beautiful island beaches of the world by the
Iceland Magazine. Amphibious vehicles were used for deep sea
angling, fishing and highly interesting sightseeing tours along the coastline all the way
to the country's southernmost point, Dyrholaey. This
activity was discontinued, but is on offer at the farm Dyrholaey, a bfurther west.
Large bird breeding colonies are on both sides of the village,
arctic terns, puffins, guillemots, fulmars, kittiwakes etc. There are many
other possibilities for recreation in Vik and its surroundings, bird
watching, hiking, glacier tours etc. If
you are travelling to the west from Vik, you should take a look at the
current road and weather conditions on Moorland
The distance from the capital is 192 km.
