Saksun – my visit to Faroe Islands | Gjertsen Photography

In a natural amphitheatre high above a tidal lagoon, Saksun is an exotic remote hillside village. It’s one of the most worthwhile destinations for a photographer. I found a tranquil atmosphere there. The tiny village offers amazing views.

In the fjord, at the foot of the village, is a lagoon. At low tide, it is possible to walk along the sandy shore of the lagoon around the headland.

The village includes a church, built in 1858, and Dúvugarðar, an active sheep farm which also functions as a museum.

I visited the Faroe Islands in August 2018 and that was a fabulous experience for a photographer.
