Katlatrack Adventure Tours are the best possible way to see Vik, which is a simply beautiful place to go and see. Give them one hour and they will show you how to experience their hometown. On their ‘Best of Vik – 1 Hour Express Tour’ you will discover the nooks and crannies of Vik in an hour in Super Jeeps for cheaper than any of the other tour providers in Iceland!
The local guide will meet you in Vik before you go out as part of a small group into the town that sits below the mountains. While in the jeep you will get exclusive access (up to their private road) to climbing the steepest mountain road in Iceland! There are beautiful tones and textures along the way as you travel to the peak of Reynisfjall, a majestic mountain dating all the way back to the Ice Age! Once at the top, you are free to walk about as you will want to get a closer look and of course pictures of the stunning panoramic view that lies in store for you.
You will be able to see Reynisdrangar’s distinctive rocky columns jutting out of the Atlantic, along with the most famous black sand beach in Iceland – Reynisfjara. To the west, you will see the famous arch of Dyrhólaey, a rocky peninsula formed thousands of years ago by a volcanic eruption.
Experience a completely unique, bird-eye perspective over some of Iceland’s most iconic locations. Better still, you get to enjoy this breathtaking landscape in complete peace and privacy, with only a handful of other guests for company.
There is plenty of time for photos given, once you learn to believe your eyes of the splendour sitting in front of you. On your way back to your new home VIK you will step back in time to the 1930s and travel on the first road that was ever built for cars in South Iceland! Along the way, your local guide will tell you the story of Vik, and the mysterious mountains that surround the little town as well as share a few tales that they grew up on including the famous trolls of Reynisdrangar, and how the present sea stacks formed.
Finally, you get to feel the rush of adrenaline as you head off-road in the Super Jeeps for a taste of true adventure and a little exhilaration! Crossing a river to arrive at an epic, wild terrain before being dropped off feeling more alive than ever back in Vik.
