Experience the breathtaking scenery at the Lake above the ocean. The Slave's Cliff is one of the most photographed sights in the Faroe Islands. From the edge you see straight down to the ocean 142 metres below and at the same time you see the lake Vatnið – the biggest lake in the Faroes. From here, you can also see the southernmost part of Streymoy, Hestur, Koltur, Sandoy, Skúvoy and Suðuroy. On to your other side you can see the bird cliffs of Sørvágsbjørg, Mykines and Mykineshólmur in the distance.

There are many legends related to these landscapes, that tell about super natural beings such as the nix, (Nykur in faroese) a scary creature that lives in lakes and often resembles a beautiful horse. It lures people close, grabs them and pulls them to the bottom of the lake. There are also the hidden people who look very much like us but practice witchcraft. And there is the promontorio itself: Slave Mountain. Supposedly, it has gotten its name from the Viking Age, when slaves were pushed off the mountain when they were for no use anymore.

The hike is considered to be an easy one for most hikers. Most of the tour is on almost flat terrain. The last 200 metres are up hill.
