After Reynisfjara, we made a pit stop in the town of Vik i Myrdal. This village is a small place in the southernmost part of Iceland. You might direct your attention to the church on top of the mountain with the red roof. This has become an icon to the town with a unique charm representing a living active religious community. You can grab a coffee in some of the cutest coffeehouses in town, and enjoy it with the cold weather of Iceland.
We then continue our journey to one of the most beautiful places you will ever see in your life: Sólheimajökull. As soon as you arrive at the glacier, you will enter in an astonishment phase with the magnificence encountered in Sólheimajökull. For locals or people that have been here before, the differences you find due to the quick climate change we have been experiencing during the past years are unquestionable. Located between two volcanoes, the name of the glacier means home of the sun glacier, and it is approximately 8 km long. If you are visiting this place, you have two choices. One of them is the simplest. Just be well dressed for the cold weather in different layers with a hat and gloves, and wear some good shoes for walking in the snow. Stroll between the ice formations and enjoy the ridges and voids. Of course, you need to be very careful. You will love the pictures in this place. If you prefer having someone guiding you through the glacier, you can always find some guided hiking tours.
