This church is on the way to Reyniskirkja Beach. When you turn down the road (215) to get to the beach it's on the left side. This is not the church that sits on the hill in Vik. It was not open when we arrived....More

This was a nice simple church with fabulous views of the ocean. There is a quaint cemetery on the hill in back of the church.

A bit off the beaten path but worth the time to stop if you are in the area. Cute little typical Icelandic church with an attached cemetery. It is closed but worth observing from the outside. Convenient parking in front.

While driving through we stopped. Not a must do but worth a couple of minutes if you have time. The kids would rather be at the black sand beach.

In the middle of nowhere, kind of. You encounter this church on your left hand side about a mile prior to reaching the black beach. Is very prominent due to its red and white colors, the austere architecture and the fact that is stands lonely...More

The church stands high on the hill overlooking Vik, which by the standards of this part of Iceland is a sizeable community. Against the brown mountainside (this was early April) its white walls and red roof stand out and invite your inner photographer to find...More
