Transportation to Vik


Vik is a very small village, with about 300 inhabitants. Its importance comes largely from the fact that it's about half way along the south coast, and it's one of the few villages actually on the sandy beach that makes up most of the south coast of Iceland. The area is dominated by Myrdalsjokull, the glacier which is home to Katla, one of Icelands fiercest volcanoes. The village and surrounding countryside are in constant danger of floods that might result from a potential volcanic eruption.
