  • Visit to the Church can be of Reykjavík well with the tour to Vik, waterfalls, glaciers and beaches. The wooden church was built in the 12th century and goes back to the shipwreck of seafarers. These Sailors prayed in a stormy night a safe return to the rugged coast of Iceland with a promise to build a church happy outcome of the adventure at the landing site. They called it Strandarkirkja, the beach fishing BB´s bay. Now some wonder around the town have grown up, many Icelanders worldwide donate money connected with the hope that their wishes will come true.

  • Beautiful older church. Great history (see wiki). You cannot walk through the cemetery. There are water closets under the statue.
  • Great stop when driving from Grindavik to Selfoss. Saw this church while a storm was passing over the sea in front of it. Quite the sight. Church is open for visitors and donations are accepted for walking around in the beautiful structure. Would recommend a stop if driving past!
  • Nice church :)
  • 在這裡看過連領導也讚好的北極光。 注意:晚上教堂不開門,沒有洗手間...
