Saksun Church, Streymoy

4.4
#5 of 20 in Historic Sites in Faroe Islands
Church Landmark
Standing alone at the end of a village road, Saksun Church looks out over the sea. The design of this site may surprise at first, since it combines religious and nautical elements and symbols. Naturally, this reflects the main trade of the locals--fishing. After your visit to the church, take time to roam around the village, enjoying the view of the sea and mountains. Put Saksun Church into our Streymoy itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • @ Saksun is a picturesque place in any weather. @ We have made many beautiful photos. @ Because the weather during our visit was not so nice, it had very few visitors. Very nice look @ the Church like the old houses. @ We could drink homemade cakes and coffee in one of the houses. Very simple! It has a toilet on the ground.

Where to stay in Streymoy

Although small villages usually have some available rooms with commendable service, the island's capital--Torshavn--offers the most options, ranging from 4-star hotels to guesthouses and lodges. Most hotels are situated in the city center near the harbor, but you can also find comfortable rooms on the town's western outskirts. Some parts of the island offer good camping sites, decent alternatives for adventurous outdoorsy types.
