Such a cool place. Very windy on the sea front but you just have to go down and have a look.There are 2 caves in which you can go in- not very big but makes for a great photo. We saw a couple of people...More

Hello! I didn’t see any hotels nearby, and when we were planning our trip, every hotel in Vik was booked! We headed back west that evening and stayed in a charming bed and breakfast in Stokkseyri called Heba Guesthouse. I highly recommend it!
