    White vs Black

    by Sharrie Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The whitest part of the glacier. The glacier is memorable because of its color; very unlike those I've seen in Switzerland, New Zealand & Canada.

    Sometimes, contrasts in life are so much more interesting than the likes!

    Hill above Vík

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Climb up to this hill, use your 4wd wagon, and you will see, how the End of the World looks like. Then look back to see the mountains and at their top the snow and the glaciers. See how puffins are flying right before your eyes, so you could reach them.

    I must say, that was the happiest and most harmonic day of 2000 for me.

    This pic is made by a Czech girl Daniela. So courtesy of...

    Black beaches of Vík

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This beach has black vulcanic sand. So it ain't a Baywatch. Better Birdwatch, couse at this place you could find some puffins, artic terns and great squas fighting. Very funny, It's really like a David Attenborough movie!

    This "small" waterfall are situated inside Seljaland Farm and it is very nice! People can go behind the waterfall but you must pay attention because there is a lot of water that fall down.

    Skogafoss: 60 m / 200 ft high.
