A craggy outcrop on the Iceland’s south coast is home to Dyrholaey, known for its natural beauty, rich wildlife and unique geological formations. During the summer the headland is rife with a variety of seabirds, including puffins, guillemots and fulmars, making it a popular destination for birdwatchers. Dyrholaey’s rugged arch is the area’s most iconic feature, having been carved by the battering sea and driving wind for thousands of years. Visitors can walk out onto the arch and look out over the ocean, taking in the panoramic views of the coastline and nearby cliffs. From the impressive arch,
head down to the iconic black sand beaches of Dyrholaey and Reynisfjara which are peppered with caves and crevices that echo with the sounds of the waves crashing against the shore. Dyrholaey is also a great base for outdoor activities, with hiking trails and camping areas located nearby, as well as plenty of guided tours and whale watching opportunities. Whether you’re looking for an outdoor-filled adventure or a wild retreat beside the sea, Dyrholaey is a must-see destination for anyone exploring Iceland.
