Create an itinerary including Reyniskirkja Church
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.

  • Beautiful view at the top of Vik, the church is lovely and the drive was a bit sharp for us but worth it if in Vik.

  • Very nice photo stop on the way to Black sand beach. Pretty location, you can not get into the church but can walk all the way round. Good for photos with snow covered mountains behind.

  • A beautiful church nested in its cemetery, typical of Icelandic churches
  • 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 .
