Why visit Vik

Natural Sites

Vik gives plenty of credence to the Nordic nation’s better-known moniker: the land of fire and ice. The infamous Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, the gargantuan Vatnajökull glacier, and spectacular northern lights are just a few examples of the sites found nearby. Vik is best experienced with local guides who know how to make your encounter with these natural spectacles truly magical. Here are some of Iceland’s earthly gems we recommend you explore.


Although the volcanic activity makes some parts of Iceland sparsely green, you’ll notice that there’s a wide array of animal species here. From the wild horses and sheep that roam freely to the adorable puffins that sit along steep cliffs, you can spend days admiring Iceland’s rich wildlife. Here are some creatures you might get a glimpse of while in Vik.

Notable Landmarks

The picturesque Vik is the southernmost village in Iceland. Despite its small size, it is the largest settlement around and serves as an important staging post. Take in the dramatic coastline and be sure to visit a few of these sites during your stay.
