When you think of Iceland, the mind conjures up images of fire and ice - a beguiling mix of volcanism and glaciers that entice and entrance visitors from all over the world. And Vík - or Vík í Mýrdal to give it its full name - is no exception. It sits close to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier and boasts beautiful black sandy beaches that betray the island’s volcanic origin. The village, the most southerly in the entire country, also boasts other natural attractions to charm the adventurer - from the Reynisdrangar sea stacks, which look like they stepped straight out of Game of Thrones and sit immediately next to the village, to the nearby charms of Reynisfjara Beach and the Dyrhólaey peninsula with its striking rock arch. Whatever your reason for visiting, this natural marvel boasts a wide array of top Airbnb vacation rentals, of which these are some of the best.

1. Charming old Vík cottage of Engigardur

This charming century-old wooden cottage has won glowing reviews from previous guests, who were impressed with the “immaculate” accommodation and “perfect location” within Vík. It is within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops and the local swimming pool. Popular natural attractions such as the Reynisdrangar sea stacks and the black sand beach are also close at hand. The property itself, which can sleep up to four people between its four guests, features a number of amenities - including a TV, wi-fi internet and a full kitchen - and there’s a small outdoor terrace to enjoy the clean air in summer and watch dancing aurorae in the darker months.
