The village of Vik is the last town to get supplies and shop before the great open and inhabited lands of the South East start. Here there’s a quite mild weather, the landscape is green and it is right in front of the Ocean.

Not far from Vik, on the Reynishverfi beach, you can admire the stack and the black cliff in columnar basalt, that reminds the bigger Irish Giant’s Causeway. Also in the Icelandic case, the fabulous natural architecture is due to the sudden cooling of the lava that got in contact with the water.

On the background you can still see the Dyrhólaey arch, that with its stateliness makes the view even more astonishing and breathtaking.
