Information about Strandakirkja

 

Ca. 15 minutes drive eastwards from Krysuvik, by the sea is the old church Strandakirkja in Selvogur. The sea waves there are breathtaking.

This area offers some of the most awe-inspiring breaker waves that you are likely to see. The church itself has been central in Icelandic seamen’s prayers for centuries and is definitely worth a visit.
