Iceland's southernmost village, Vik, sports some of the country's wildest and most dramatic coastline.
We've included these beaches for you: Black Sand Beach and Reynisfjara Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Skogar Museum and Rutshellir Cave. Get out of town with these interesting Vik side-trips: Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall (in Hella) and Fjadrargljufur Canyon (in Kirkjubaejarklaustur). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Skogafoss, appreciate the history behind Voyages Friendship Statue, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Reyniskyrka Church, and take in the dramatic natural features at Dyrhólaey.
