Information about Akraberg

By Verified Expert

This is the most southerly point in the Faroe Islands. You will find the post-card-worthy Akraberg on Suðuroy island. Akraberg lies 5 kilometres south of the village Sumba.

There is a striking lighthouse at Akraberg which still guides sea traffic in this part of the Faroe Islands. There are only a couple of houses in Akraberg. Houses here have mostly been used to accommodate the lighthouse keeper in older days.

No people live at Akreberg throughout the year. There are a couple of summerhouses on this southernmost spot in the Faroe Islands.

There is a rich birdlife at Akraberg as well as skerries that are covered in surf especially during the winter month. You will see merely ocean from Akraberg and no other islands.

When you get to Akreberg, you are able to park your car and walk around in the area. There are fences along the cliff’s edge so it is safe to bring children to this attraction.
