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. Arrange to visit Vik Church and other attractions in Vik using our Vik journey website .

  • You can not miss this church in Vik. It is all white with red roof. Small parking lot but easy to walk into church. No restrooms for public and no services the day we were in town. Like other Iceland ...  more »

  • 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.
