About

The village of Vík í Mirdal is the southernmost village in Iceland, located on the main ring road around the island, 180 km (110 mi) southeast of Reykjavík.

Vík í Mirdal counts only around 300 inhabitants, and this makes it the largest settlement for about 70 km! Here you will find wild nature rarely touched by human kind! 

Vík í Mýrdal rises along the homonymous beach. In 1991, the US journal Islands Magazine counted this beach as one of the ten most beautiful beaches on Earth. Its stretch of black basalt sand is one of the wettest places in Iceland. Stacks of basalt rock lie of offshore: part of a once more extensive Reynisfjal cliff line, now battered by the sea. There is no landmass between here and Antarctica and the Atlantic waves can attack with majestic power. The cliffs west of the beach are home to many seabirds.

Don’t miss the chance to enjoy an incredible view over the splendid beach by paragliding with a professional guide!

If you don’t fear the cold, come during the winter: if lucky you’ll see the magical northern lights!
