Dyrhólaey Peninsula is a 120-metre promenade famed for its staggering views of Iceland’s South Coast, as well as its historic lighthouse and lively birdlife. Adjacent to the peninsula is a rock arch barring the same name.

Dyrhólaey, which translates to Door Hill Island, is of volcanic origin and was once an island until the mainland caught up to it.

It is also the southernmost part of the Icelandic mainland, making it a popular stop for sightseers travelling along the ring road. Close by the coastal village of Vik, Reynisdrangar and the black sand beach, Reynisfjara.
