SAKSUN

We made it through very narrow scenic road to Saksun. It is splendidly set in a natural circular amphitheatre high above a tidal lagoon. It is really a wonderfully remote hillside village so we have decided to overnight here. It is well known for its tranquil atmosphere and amazing views of the surrounding mountains with waterfall. The village also includes a church, built in 1858, and Dúvugarðar, an active sheep farm which also functions as a museum.
