Reyniskirkja 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.

Nice picturesque church with cemetery. Plenty of parking space. On the way to Black beach.
What a gorgeous place to stop. Unexpected. The silence there is really suggestive, watching this small church and graveyard with the gigantic mountains behind. Really loved it .
It's literally along the way to the black sand beach or reynisfjara so you won't miss it - a quick stop to take pictures - fascinating is there's a small cemetery next to it ...
As per most churches on the island, it has the traditional red spire and wooden constriction. But this one sits in a stunning location close to the black sand beach.
Almost all churches in Iceland look like this one. White with a red roof. This one has a small cemetery next to it which adds some melancholy and I like that atmosphere a lot.
