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.

A trip to Saksun is Another great excursion through the Faroese landscape. The views are spectacular. I assume that a hike to Tjörnuvik could be fantastic. We settled with just going up the mountain above Saksun and look down on the village and the lagoon.

You might go to a party in a beautiful house with great food, but if you don't feel welcome, it's just not that great... that's how visiting Saksun feels! Everybody comes, hoping to see that cute little house, but instead find that everything is fenced...More

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.

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.

This is a very pretty little village especially for its picture postcard perfect church by the beach. Whilst it is a lovely drive out to this village it is probably the busiest place we visited in the Faroes being fairly near Tórshavn and very popular...More

Really peaceful and amazing views in this little village. Already the road there was exciting. We took the walk out to the Sea. You have to be careful about the tide though. We spent an hour on the beach by the sea, but when we...More
