Saksun Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see



Among all the villages in the Faroes that deserve epithets like 'magnificent' or 'picturesque' Saksun is the one which, more than any other, can claim a wondrous serenity.

On the road you pass a lake, which seems picturesque enough but then over a final rise you see the small settlement below you, the church on the other side of the road and far below a lagoon created by the sea, with only a short chanel between high hills separating it from the open Atlantic.

There is an old farm converted to a museum.
