Saksun is perhaps the most picturesque village in the Faroe Islands. You will find it on Streymoy Island at the end of the road no. 53 in a valley along the Gjógvará River at the end of a more than one-kilometre long bay. You can walk not only there, but also in the adjacent mountains, or you can go from there to the village of Tjørnuvík.

Here you will find the green-roofed church, which originally stood in Tjørnuvík, but was dismantled in 1858 and transported here to Saksun. And also the most Instagrammable house in the Faroe Islands, which, however, like everything else here in the Faroes, is on private land and its owner does not appreciate the popularity of the house.
