One of the most popular things to do here in Vik is go to the Vik Wool shop and have a look at the quality winter wear there. Out back, they have a demonstration of how they weave some of the garments there. You can also hang out at the amazing, black-sand beach and marvel at the adjacent cliffs. If you have a car with you, it is worth a drive around the cliff face to the point at Dyrholaey. If you are lucky and there at the right time of day, there is a small puffin colony that lives along the cliffs here that you can visit for free. It is also worth a trip to Reynisfjara as well, they are both only about a fifteen-minute drive from the Vik town centre.
