Kötlutangi - Southernmost point of Iceland

Kötlutangi - Southernmost point of Iceland

The southernmost point of Iceland is just east of Vik i Myrdal, the southernmost settlement of this beautiful island. If you drive from Vik towards Kirkjubaejarklaustur, you take the clearly marked exit to the right towards the viewpoint Hjörleifshöfdi. This is a gravel road on which you drive as far as possible until, at a certain point you come along a rock. Just beyond it stretches a huge black beach in front of you where only 4x4 vehicles are allowed to drive on. You have reached the southernmost point which is subject to tides and has no clear marker so that the best reference for this Mostpoint is the sign that indicates that only 4X4 can drive through.

What else is there
There are several beautiful vantage points in the area, including cape Dyrhólaey with the lighthouse where during spring many puffins (puffins) and other seabirds make their nests (road 218). Visit Mount Reynisfall and the black beach Reynisfjara with the Reynisdrangar basalt columns (road 215). According to legend, these are trolls that were fishing at night and were then surprised by the first sunrays and changed into stone. Garðar is the southernmost farm, located on the road to Reynisfjara

Notes
Statistically, Vik i Myrdal is the place in Iceland with the most rainfall and the gravel road can therefore be partially flooded, but usually still possible to ride. If not, you can always continue walking to the end of the road or even consider horse riding.
