Troll Rocks Jun 29, 2008
Despite being the main focal point for the direction signs, on the way from Reykjavic, Vik is really quite a small town about half way along the southern section of the ring road.
It does however have a great beach of black volcanic sand and is the best place to see the Reynisdrangar (Troll Rocks).
Only a couple of small shops, and a couple of restaurants down near the beach, and we went into the Halldorskaffi. It wasn't that great, were left waiting for ages, to the point we were about to leave, and the choice was very limited.
Has a beatiful little church set up on the hill.
For those doing the ring road this will be a compulsory stop, as the rocks are one of the most striking features you will take as a memory for Iceland. Just don't expect to much from the town.
