Garðsbrún 6, Höfn í Hornafirði, Iceland
Absolutely loved this church. The location was great. The drive down from the mountains is one of a kind. You can see this church from afar.
Not to be too glib, but it’s just a black church. A well maintained church, but nothing else really special about it IMHO. With so many other spectacular things to see in Iceland, I’m surprised this is so popular.
A wonderful walk taking in the coast, church and hotel restaurant. I was surprised at how few people were there. Would definitely visit again
What a beautiful area, the quaint church and yard are just the beginning. Just beyond them are some superb views along the coast and off into the Atlantic, and a path across the lava field to a crater. The lava field is uneven and the path is worn but can be a little easy to miss if you are taking in the views! The field hides little hollows full of ferns and flowers that otherwise wouldn't survive at ground level. Magical!
I don't see what all of the fuss is about. It is an old church in a large field.so many other awesome things to see in Iceland I wouldn't waste my time.
