Modern but well decorated church, with a nice atmosphere and a clear nod to the seas that surround it. Worth visiting on a rainy day.

Recommend that people view inside as its truly awe-inspiring for a modern church, having fabulous architecture, lights and a 'long boat' above you! The local church warden was very friendly and more than happy to tell us about the church and local culture.

Fresh feel to this high ceiling church with good acoustics. Lovely altar piece and don’t forget to look above the door at the inverted boat. There are interesting wooden ‘sculptures’ downstairs worth looking at too.

As we met our new local friend who we got to know thanks to Couchsurfing, the church was the first place he took us to - he said it was a must-visit point of our short visit to Klasvik. Being a part of Klaksvik community,...More

The church has to be closed, but was open with no lights. Dramatic? No, suggestive, as the wooden boat on the rooftop.

We were on a round tour in this amazing church, which remains of a Faroese wooden church, classical Viking buildings or Faroese farms. The outer walls are made of basalt blocks, and the long sides of the roof frame are from five unbroken gables. The...More

The church itself was standard. There is a boat hanging in the roof! In the basement there are some art works in wood which are really cool.
