The church is on a hill surrounded by beautiful lupines in summer, Great view of the city from this location. Inside is really small and nice quiet area for prayer.

Saw the little red-roofed church perched up on a hill and took drive to check it out. It's a great spot overlooking Vík and gives a great vantage point since you're nice and elevated for pictures. Worth the quick pit stop and you can continue...More

I don’t know if the church doors ever open. They weren’t when we were there. Still a nice place to park and walk around and take a few pics.

Great view of town, especially with the lupine in bloom. Did not enter the church as it was almost midnight.

Cute church in Vik. Up on a hill so you can see the whole town. Surrounded by pretty purple flowers. View of the town is great as well. Church was locked.

The small church on the hill over looking Vik is worth a visit. It only takes a few minutes to drive up to the church. You can get a great picture of the town of Vik with the ocean in the background.

It’s adorable with goooood views! From here 2 hiking trails start, and easy and difficult one. Nice drive up from Vil, literally a minute drive

Quick stop for a panorama photo of Vik. After stopping at the church, do drive two minutes up the dirt road for a better view, where the church can be placed in the foreground for an excellent photograph.
