Svartifoss (Black Fall) is a waterfall in Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park in Iceland, and is one of the most popular sights in the park. It is surrounded by dark lava columns, which gave rise to its name. Other well-known columnar jointing formations are seen at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, Devil's Tower in Wyoming, USA and on the island of Staffa in Scotland.
Those are the Reynisdrangar and that’s what Vík is famous for (besides of being one of the wettest places in Iceland), making it a favourite tourist destination. But there is more than Vík to see in the south of Iceland. Here are loads more of ideas, after Dyrhólaey, of what to do on a day tour along the south coast.
