Go for a hike in the mountains !

Þakgil is the best hiking spot in Vík. Go walk in the mountains above the village and enjoy a wonderful scenery, straight out of The Lord of the Rings! The trails that are marked are from the campsite and to the glacier it is marked with red and yellow sticks. The purple way to Remundargil is also marked. Austurafréttur is more or less marked with yellow sticks. But from Mælifell down to the campsite again is not marked(marked red on the map). You can buy hiking maps at the information center in Vík. You will also find a sign describing the trails at the Þakgil campsite.
