On the Road to Vík

I rode along with friends to Vík last week. Vík is the southernmost village in Iceland, and is several hours southeast of Reykjavik. This is about halfway there along the ring road. It was rainy and gray out, but the scenery was still breathtaking. We had great views of the fresh layer of snow on the way out of the city, before the rain melted everything, and got a glimpse at Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss as we drove by. See my other posts for pictures of Vík and its black sand beach.

    • Not at all. There is nothing equivalent to a us beltway in Iceland. It’s just one mostly two lane road that runs around the entire Island. Most roads in Iceland are two lane; it’s usually just a difference between paved and not paved. The ring road is really well maintained so you can use it all year.
