Dyrholaey is a very weird but fascinating place. The weather was windy and foggy, but we experienced a unique place. On top of a 120m cliff with views over a green vegetation, black sediments beach, white shoreline and the blue ocean was just incredible. On top of that, the erosion have created several incredible features and they are now the nesting paradise of some birds, puffins among them. It must be wonderful in a really nice day...

Great view from here to the black beaches to the east and to the west. To get a view to the west and the hole in the rock (Dyrhólaey), you need to drive to the upper plateau. Note that the road up there is rater rough so you need a car that can handle it. Also note that in the spring there is a restriction on when you can visit. (Closed in the night.)

Close to Vik, this spot offers breath taking views of the ocean, land features, and surrounding countryside. Plus there are a ton of birds flying and roosting around. A must see in the Vik area.

Closed evenings in June during puffin mating season. Closed from 9am to 7pm. So we never got to go in. Unfortunately the closed sign is at the end of the road instead of the beginning.

This stop has been improved since our last visit, with washrooms and additional marked trails. 30 minutes side trip.
