Vik

Trip Planner Europe  /  Iceland  /  South Region  /  Vik
(4.5/5 based on 4,400+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, nature, sightseeing
Iceland's southernmost village, Vik, sports some of the country's wildest and most dramatic coastline. Fewer than 300 people call this town home, although it is the largest settlement for some distance in this relatively unpopulated part of the world. There are few cultural attractions here, but Vik more than compensates for this with its striking beach. Cliffs rise above a long stretch of black basalt sand, and you can often spot puffins nesting there. Be warned, the sea can be very powerful here, as there is no landmass between this section of coast and Antarctica. To personalize your trip to Vik, create itinerary details specific to you using our Iceland travel itinerary maker.

Where to stay

For such a compact town, Vik and its surroundings boast a surprisingly wide range of accommodations. Many hotels, guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, and private cottages sit among picturesque settings. To get in touch with nature, sleep under the stars at one of the area's large campgrounds. With on-site showers and a distance just a short walk to the town's amenities, campgrounds make an attractive and budget-friendly option here.
