Saksun is simply wonderful with the tidal lagoon surrounded by sand, mountains and stunning waterfalls. You will also get the chance to see the old iconic church overlooking the lagoon.

After your visit in Saksun you will go to Gjógv through Funningur. The first vikings in the Faroe Islands settled in Funningur. The old churh in Funninger is one of the old wooden churches in the Faroe Islands. 

After 15 minutes with spectacular mountain roads, Gjógv is in sight down the next valley. Gjógv is the most northern village on the island of Eysturoy, named after a 200-metre long sea-filled gorge that runs from the village into the ocean.

Gjógv is an idyllically located and beautiful quiet village with abundance of charm and appeal. Add to this some great hiking and walking trails that offer spectacular views of the North Atlantic and the surrounding islands and you don’t want to miss out on this special location.
