The Vidareidi chuch is one of the most famous churches on the Faroe Islands. Close to it there are some very old graves from the Viking age being dug out by archaeologists proving that people have lived here for a very long time back through the bronze and iron age.

Driving through this area is quite fantastic and suddenly the landscape opens up between the mountains and the bay where the North Atlantic Sea comes in and the church really stands out against the wild country around with some pens where sheep are grasing.
