Dyrhólaey, The Hill Island with the Door Hole

Dyrhólaey ("the hill island with the door hole") is a small promontory or peninsula located on the south coast of Iceland, about 2.5 hour drive from Reykjavik, not far from the beautiful little village Vík. It was formerly an island of volcanic origin. The volcano erupted about 100,000 years ago during the Pleistocene. The peninsula has an elevation of 120 metres (390 ft), and the Dyrhólaey Lighthouse sits at the top of the formation facing the sea. On top in the higher area of Dyrhólaey you will have a breathtaking view to all directions, including Mýrdalsjökull glacier and the endless black coastline.  🇮🇸🏞️
