Dyrholaey Nature Reserve

9 06 2014

The Dyrholaey Nature Reserve, home to numerous cliff birds, is located not far from Vik in southern Iceland. The place got its name from the massive arch that the sea has eroded from the headland. (The name literally means “door-hole”). When the sea is calm, big boats can sail through it. There has even been a maniacal daredevil pilot that flew through the arch with a small-craft airplane. (This formation isn’t shown in this shot, by the way. I just wanted to give you the origin of the reserve’s name!)
