Vik Church, Vik

4.2
#1 of 14 in Historic Sites in South Region
Vik Church features traditional wooden architecture and stands on the top of a hill, overlooking the village of Vik and its black basalt beaches. During the winter, the snowy mountainous vistas make for pretty pit-stop photo opportunities. Considering this parish is isolated, pre-planning is essential, as you'll only be able to enter and/or attend services on specific days. Get in touch with a local tour operator for more info.

  • The view from the church is spectacular, and if it touches you clear ed much better, because you will be able to see the basalt columns of Reynisdrangar.. from another world. That day was very icy and windy, but that combination gives even more magic to Iceland and all the landscapes you'll see. You will not tire of the landscapes, for me all snowy... Magic. A gift from the gods

  • Tiny, made of wood, is a cute, toy church in the national style, Nordic style, as I could see in Scandinavia and also in Greenland. They are collected, intimate, very beautiful and simple as a brand of Lutheran Protestantism.

  • Little church located on a hill that dominates the small town of Vik i Myrdal. The view is really good, especially during sunset. If you climb up a little bit more behind the church there is also a graveyard.
  • Probably the most scenic church in Iceland. Nothing great about church, but setting is phenomenal.
