During our time in the Vík-area, we stayed in a place called “Welcome Holiday Home”, a collection of small and really comfy huts. It was just around the corner of the Skógafoss waterfall and Reynisfjara beach which are also two spots full of tourists. We were a bit disappointed about the amount of people despite the time of year since we rather enjoy spending our holidays alone and a bit away from other people but in the end we only had daylight until 3:30pm anyway. We spent the late afternoons and evening in our hut, cooking dinner, eating Skyr for desert, watching TV and actually enjoying some time simply doing nothing and being together. In one of the clear nights we were even lucky enough so see some northern lights. Something I’ve never seen before and I had on my bucket list for quite a while. We got into our car, drove a bit further away from the mountains and spent half an hour being amazed by those dancing lights in the sky. After five nights in our cabin, we moved on to Höfn, in the southwest of Iceland which i will show you in the last part of my blogposts.
