A small road will lead you to Gjógv. You will be treated to gorgeous views when sliding down the valley. The coastal village is famous for its picturesque scenery dotted with colourful houses built around its sea-filled gorge that has given the village its name.
The gorge runs from the village into the ocean where you will also find a harbour. The landscape around the village is incredible and varied.
Gjógv means gorge in Faroese. It is a fitting name; the harbour carved by the sea was the village’s lifeline before the arrival of modern roads. From Gjógv you will have an epic view of the island Kalsoy.
