When approaching Gjógv you will see the village Funningur. The first vikings in the Faroe Islands settled in Funningur. You will have the chance to take a picture of the winding road leading to the valley where Funningur is located.

After 15 minutes with spectacular mountain roads, Gjógv is in sight down the next valley. Gjógv is located on the island Eysturoy. Gjógv means gorge in Faroese. You will understand why the village got this name when looking into the beautiful sea-filled gorge that is the most iconic attraction in Gjógv. 

Gjógv is an idyllically located and beautiful quiet village with stunning view towards the island Kalsoy and other islands in the northern part of the Faroe Islands.

The local guesthouse will serve for you a lunch platter and pancakes with warm beverages. You will also walk through the village and into the gorge.
