When I visited the Vik area on my first trip to Iceland this June, I was pretty disappointed about the windy and rainy weather conditions that prevented me from taking classical scenes such as the Vik church amongst the blooming Lupine fields. Also Dyrhólaey lighthouse and coast and Reynisfjara beach were a complete wipeout.
Based on the recommendation at the Tourist info, we decided to stay for the night on a campsite just outside of Vik – it turned out that this campsite was a 45min drive through glacial plains into the mountains to an area called Pakgil. After heavy rainfalls throughout the night, it finally briefly stopped in the morning and allowed us for a short stroll. I came across this little river and shot this image handheld. I researched the area a little bit later on and it would have been awesome to do more hiking there – that’s for next time.
