Vik In Myrdal

Region: South Iceland
Coordinates: 63.4186° N 19.0060° W
Weather: °C, Wind at km/h, % Humidity
Population: 318

This 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 bit further 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 Vikurskard.

The Atlantic puffin comes to Iceland for nesting in April-July

The Atlantic puffin is a migrating seabird that spends winters in the open ocean in the North Atlantic and moves to shallower waters in early spring when the breeding season starts. It sets in bird cliffs and islands for nesting, usually in late March or the beginning of April. When the pufflings are ready in late July or early August, they start moving out to sea again.
About 60% of the world population of Atlantic puffins nest in Iceland, and it is the country’s most common bird.
