Tips from the community

This church is in the village of Saksun, near the northwest coast of Streymoy. Here, history prevails and charm levels easily reach 12/10. The simple architecture lends way to the ridiculous backdrop and spectacular views, and is gorgeous it its own right. Witnessing a blush-colored dusk highlight the exterior of the postcard-perfect church and poufs of cloud stretching across the fable-like terrain is something from a dream.
