Búðakirkja church (together with Hofskirkja) is certainly the most photographed church in Iceland. Its black color in contrast with hazy air and Snæfellsjökull glacier as a background makes it so popular.

How to find the Búðakirkja church:

Búðakirkja stands out at the south coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula where the road nr. 54 diverts from the sea into the mountains. Just turn off it here (GPS: 64.838909, -23.402820). After about 500 meters turn left and continue for another 2 kilometers, there you´ll find the church.
