The church is very beautiful and characteristic but also the landscape is impressive. A lot of green with a beautiful see view.

Lovely drive out to this area via Torshavn and jaw dropping beauty once you get there! We loved this area! Met a few wild horses and took too many pictures to count.

Although we came in july the entire site was covered in fog and you could barely see your own hand In front of you (the day before had been crystal clear!). On this occasion it added to the atmosphere but in truth you need to...More

We drove up to Saksun on a windy but sunny summer's day. We preferred the view looking away from the church, up the hill, across the town. You can either walk or drive up the hill and look down into the valley.

I was saddened to learn that this " attraction" is placed innthe middle of a farmers land. And that the 8 people living there are completely run over by tourists. The only public area in the village is the paved road. Walking anywhere else is...More

This tiny village is serene, with spectacular scenery. Don't miss the little museum inside the old turf-covered farmhouse. We were with a group, so we did not have time to linger and explore the shoreline by the bay (at low tide) or interact with the...More

Awesome, atmospheric & rugged - I absolutely loved this place. The combination of towering cliffs, waterfalls and traditional buildings make for a picturesque spot. The church is quite pleasant and there's a "cafe nearby" (KR20 to make & pour your own coffee from the kettle...More

The road leading to Saksun and the stunning nature around Saksun church is beautiful. There's two parking lots. From the first there is a nice walk down to the black sandy beach, only reachable at low tide (3 km t/r). From the second parking lot...More
