It is a really beautiful little church in the tiny village of Saksun. In many villages the church sits in the middle of the village but here it is a bit apart. Maybe because of the graveyard. If you venture up the Vidareidi, you can...More

Absolutely awesome view and setting, up there with the absolute best in the Faroes. Just come and sit and enjoy the changing light and the best the Faroes has to offer.
