    Photo op! Visit little blue church at the end of the rainbow road
    If you're lucky, your Iceland itinerary will feature a stop in picturesque Seyðisfjörður and it's almost impossible to miss the charming little blue church at the end of the rainbow road. Every tourist seems to take their picture on the rainbow road, but the church itself is also sweet. Inside is a pipe organ and it's open to visitors for seemingly catch-as-catch-can hours in the summer.

    A “Must Do” in Seydisfjordur
    We first ventured by at about 10 am and the church was locked. Went back about 2 PM and it was open. Couple of interesting sculptures in their garden. Glad we went back! Simple Scandinavian architecture and beautiful wedgewood blue/white interior. Small and very peaceful! Highly recommend!

    Cute little village
    This pretty Blue Church is an iconic sight. Rainbow Road is a rainbow brick path that shows love for its LBGTQ residents. The colourful Norwegian style wooden houses render this village unique in Iceland.

    The most sight spot in Iceland
    Seydisfjordur, in the Eastern Fjords, is one of the most picturesque villages in Iceland, as well as one of the country's main cruise ports. Surrounded by snowcapped mountains and waterfalls, the most prominent natural landmarks are Mt. Bjólfur (1085m) to the west and Strandartindur (1010m) to the east, both of which are a part of Iceland’s seven peak hike. Blue Church: Seydisfjordur Church is one of the town's most emblematic monuments.

This attraction is simple, small and nice.

It deserves some pictures and a walk in the small town. Near the church there are house/buildings painted or decorated in an artistic way. You can follow a path to a nice view of Seydisfjordur and to visit the sound dome.
Not much to do in the area..

This was a "surprise" port for Sky Princess due to a major north atlantic storm. There were lots of waterfalls on the fjord. We didn't have time to research so we just wandered around. The weather was perfect, the little town picturesque. The shop doesn't open until 10 so we sat by the water enjoying the scenery. Staff in the shop were very friendly and we were able to buy a stamp, postcard and licorice.

After staying for a night in Egilsstadir we drove to this secluded town, Seydisfjordur. It's in a small fjord and the town is amazing. While the church is beautiful the whole town is beautiful. It's a challenging drive up and down the steep road but it is totally worth it.

Bláa kirkjan is a beautiful church that sits in a perfect setting in Seyðisfjörður. Probably one of the best, if not the best, photo opportunity in all of Iceland (at least for a building). Take a few minutes to relax and take in the scenery surrounding this church. It doesn't get much better than this. Was unable to enter the church as the doors were locked. Still, the exterior of this church in this natural setting is worth the visit. Bring your camera and be prepared to have your breath taken away.

A very cozy small town with typical Icelandic houses. We had a good walk and even saw seals. It's worth a visit because you can enjoy it even while driving on the road to Seydisfjordur, because the view is amazing.

Part of our organized tour, we drove around this town had a short stop . Lot’s of waterfalls to see on the way to the town . The town is fairly easy to walk around but there is some inclines and some steps. Unfortunately in 2020, the town suffered from a substantial landslide that affected directly and undirect the citizens. There was a functional at the church so we couldn’t visit inside but we did see the rainbow walkway that leads to the church.

An amazing drive down from Egillstadir to Seydisfjordur a lovely little village dwarfed by the cruise ship docked there. The church painted blue is like a piece of wedgewood inside. Very pretty and worth seeing. It is actually worth going there just for the drive down the mountain!

This is one of the iconic Icelandic photo ops. There is a cute rainbow road in an ally that almost leads up to the church. In all honesty, I think the rainbow road in Reykjavik is longer, but this road is very picturesque with this beautiful church in the background. Iceland has many tiny towns and all of them seem to have churches on a hill that are beautiful.
