Vík í Mýrdal a city with many tourist attractions of IcelandMarch 13, 2018
Vik in Myrdal It is one of the major cities of Iceland, It is a small village in southern Iceland, in the region Suðurland, for those who want to get around by car Iceland this city is one of the stops, it has a small infrastructure and is close to several Iceland tourist attractions.
We did not turn on for Island did not have enough days to do so, to get around if you should stay in the country for at least one 10 days, the ideal would be 15 days.
This city is an important stop because his side are:
The waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and the Gljúfrabúi, the first is one of the main waterfalls of the country a beauty of nature, water formed by glaciers.
O Eyjafjallajökull volcano, who stopped in Europe 2010 when you had a volcanic eruption that spread ash into the atmosphere in the region.
Skógafoss another beautiful waterfall in Iceland.
O Sólheimajökull glacier, one of the three glaciers that exist in Iceland, an attraction that exists in few countries and for us Brazilians is fantastic and very different, to go there leave the car in the parking lot (Sólheimajökull glacier parking lot) if you want to walk around the glacier you have to hire a execursão or go well prepared to do for account, buying special equipment to be able to do this adventure.
Black Sand Beach, a beach of black sand very different from the fine white sand beaches of Brazil, but it is closed to visitors, because of an accident that occurred in 2017 with a tourist who was “swallowed up” by the sea, so if you want to know a black sand beach will have to go on Reynisfjara Beach, which is right next to the city.
Dyrhólaey is a carved stones at sea have made a sort of bridge the stones.
Fjaðrárgljúfur It is a beautiful canyon, It has to be one of the stops of his tour to visit power.
Svartifoss Another beautiful waterfall Iceland that has a side formations of hexagonal shaped waterfall, we like the rock formation that exists in northern Ireland the Giant's Causeway (but it was closed, then we could not get to her).
Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon as the name implies, is a lake formed by glacier melting Jökulsárlón there is one of the places we love most of Iceland, to be a lake with icebergs, to have seals on the lake and of course the super beauty different and beautiful the glacier itself.
A tip of Iceland after we were there is, it is not good to stay all day staying in Reykjavík region, particularly if you rent a car, because to go in these beautiful and wonderful places will have to drive more than 750km between round trip on the same day, that's why we recommend staying a day or two in Vík í Mýrdal or in a nearby city., It was very tiring drive all this amount of kilometers in a single day.
