Vik and the beauty of emptiness

The town of Vik is stunning and it’s easily recognisable for its colourful houses and red-roofed church. Vik is nestled in southern Iceland. Home to under 400 people, it’s services provide a lifeline to the people who live in the remote landscape. With the emptiness, however, comes true beauty.

Vis-à-vis with Vis

Due to its distance from the mainland, Vis does not attract as many tourists or visitors compared to the other popular islands such as Hvar or Brac. We loved how serene and peaceful Vis was. This is the perfect destination for a weekend getaway away from the crowds and bustle.
