Dyrhólaey is a small peninsula 120 meters high, located on the south coast of Iceland near the small town of Vík. This is the southernmost point of the island. This peninsula is characterized by the presence of a volcanic arch.
From the top of the cliffs, there is an interesting view of the black sand beaches stretching west towards Selfoss and east over the black lava needles of Reynisdrangar.
Skógafoss is a waterfall located on the Skógá River in the small village of Skógar in southern Iceland. The Skógá river flows from its cliffs and drops 62 meters, forming a fall with a width of some 25 meters. The waterfall is one of the most famous and most visited in the country.
Much less famous than its majestic neighbor Skogafoss, Kvernufoss is one of those little-known treasures of southern Iceland. Kvernufoss is neither the most powerful nor the highest waterfall in the country, but it is well worth a detour.
