The nature of Iceland is so majestic that anywhere you point the camera you will have the best and most scenic photos. The Myrdalsjokull glacier is one of these amazing spots. Vik village and its surroundings are among my favourite regions in the country.

This was a real bonus. Never expected to be so near a large glacier. Easy to get to about 20 mins from where we stayed in the Umi Hotel. Options to take guided walking tours, but equally spectacular just walking at the face. Highly recommend...More
