Since 1972 The Víkurprjón wool manufacturer and outlet shop is one of Vík’s oldest and most popular stops for tourists who are looking for the perfect memento of their trip to Iceland. Marking its 42nd anniversary this year, Víkurprjón is perhaps the largest wool factory outlet in Iceland and continues to increase production on a yearly basis. Inside you will find a treasure trove of sorts- from lovely hand knitted items and machine knit woollens to a wide assortment of Icelandic souvenirs. On the upper floor you can observe the looms at work and get a glimpse of how the garments are made. Guided factory tours are available upon request and staff is more than happy to answer your questions. Keeping warm with Icewear Víkurprjón stocks an extensive collection of Icewear’s outdoor clothing range that includes everything you need to keep warm- from woollen sweaters, mittens, gloves and hats, to down parkas designed with an emphasis on new fabrics and the latest trends. The rapidly growing company which prides itself on its friendly customer service and competitive pricing welcomes you and your group, both at the cruise ship port in Reykjavík and in the northern town of Akureyri. Counted among the most picturesque villages in Iceland, Vík-í-Mýrdal is one of those must-see places that no tourist in Iceland should miss. Looming high above the tiny village of 330 inhabitants, the white expanse of Mýrdalsjökull Glacier shrouds the notorious Katla Volcano which slumbers just underneath the glacier’s icecap. The sheer-faced mountains, black sand beaches and stunning landscapes full of startling contrasts are all part of what makes Vík the 2nd most visited town in Iceland after Reykjavik.
