The magical Icelandic lighthouse at Dyrhólaey
This Icelandic lighthouse is located near the spot where I took pictures of beautiful beach with black lava sand with huge stone. We were staying in Vik. As it turned out, it was a good starting point because close the Vík you will find lava columns Reynisdrangar, this amazing lighthouse and endless beaches along the coast. If you would like, right at the lighthouse you can even book accommodation. The Lighthouse hotel accommodates five guests with two double bedrooms and one single.
The light station at Dyrhólaey was Established in 1910. The first lighthouse was a steel skeletal tower, prefabricated in Sweden, and the present lighthouse was built in 1927. I’ve done a couple of photos of the lighthouse, I hope you will like them.
As I wrote in another article, don´t go too close to the edge of the cliffs, trying to take that perfect picture! In 2012, a land slide occurred. A part of the cliff broke off with two tourists on top. They just survived the 40 m deep fall with bad injuries and broken bones. It is quite true that nature in Iceland is unpredictable.
