Had unexpected stop and had our lunch overlooking the beach and the small town. Very quaint area and interesting going up the gravel road to check out the cemetery.

Vik is a great place to visit along the Ring road of Iceland. Its population was only 300 a couple of years ago but is surely growing based on the observation that many new buildings have been made and a brand new hotel called Kria.

take the time to ascend up the hill (by car) to check out the church. You then experience a great perspective and view of Vik and the surrounding beach and area. Beautiful.

This is a stop off but you cannot go inside the building. Great photo and views. Paved so parking is easy.

If visiting Vik would recommend to stop to take in the nice panoramic views of Vik, the coastline and Atlantic ocean. The church was closed when we stoped so did not see the inside.

Standing above Vik, this small church is like a beacon on the hill into Vik. Well worth stopping here briefly as it also gives a good view out to the ocean.

Our guide drove us up and dropped us off in the parking lot - there are some lovely views of Vik and the coast from here but truthfully no one in my group even went in!

The church is situated on a hill overlooking Vik. This is one of the best places to see the whole of Vik. However, if you go a little further up the hill you will get an even better view of Vik with the church itself.

The church itself is nothing too exciting, very quaint with a red roof, but it’s the view from the church that is spectacular. This church perched high on a hill is very iconic for the city of Vik, and I would sure love to have...More
