Katla Center

Katlacenter

Kötlusetur provides tourists with information and Is one of visitor centres for the Katla Geopark. It is located in the heart of the village of Vík. Currently Kötlusetur stays open every day from May to September, but it is open upon request during the winter. Our location in Brydebúð, the oldest building of the village of Vík, houses an extensive Katla-volcano exhibition and our giftshop, featuring local handicrafts and various books on Iceland, as well as the information desk. This season we are preparing a new exhibition on Skaftfellingur, a cargo ship from the begining of the 20th century which was a catalyst in the formation of the village in Vík. We offer daily walks around the village and its immediate surroundings with a local guide who takes you through the history of the young settlement. Please don't hesitate to contact us for further information or bookings.
