SOUTHWEST COAST

Vik, with is lovely hillside church is the gateway to the southwest. With a population of 300, it is Iceland’s most southern town and its rainiest. It also is adjacent to one of the most spectacular beaches to be found anywhere, REYNISFJARA with its backdrop of basalt columns that certainly influenced the architect of Reykjavik’s Hallgrimskirkja.  It is guarded by a cluster of sea stacks, REYNISDRANGUR.
