Saksun, Streymoy

Saksun is a remote little village on the Streymoy island with a unique location placed above a beautiful lagoon, which previously used to form a natural harbor. Unfortunately, it was blocked with sand during a storm. The tide fills up the lagoon with seawater two times every day. At the low tide you can walk along the shore of the lagoon to the Ocean.

The village includes a turf-roofed church and a village museum. In addition, you find some lovely turf houses in the Dúvagarðar settlement in Saksun as well as waterfalls along the steep mountain sides.
