The view from Dyrhólaey
My husband and I traveled around the periphery of Iceland (on Ring Road) over a 9-day trip this summer. This was shot on the third day of our road-trip at Dyrhólaey, a small peninsula located in Southern Iceland , close to the village of Vik. The road to Dyrhólaey though paved can be very easily missed from Ring Road. If you are traveling from Skogar to Vik look out for a small sign pointing to Dyrhólaey on the right. Once up there, you get beautiful views in all directions including Reynisdrangar - sea stacks at Vik, and Mýrdalsjökull glacier. There's also a rock-arch which is visible from the Ring Road. We also saw several puffins nesting on the cliffs .
