KolturThe island Koltur has a beautiful and striking shape. Koltur is the second smallest island in the Faroe Islands. Its highest point is the monumental cone-shaped peak of Kolturshamar also called Uppi á Oyggj (477 m). Rising steeply and intensely green out of the sea during summer, it dominates any view of the island.

You will have a great view towards Koltur from Norðradalsskarð on Streymoy island. Alternatively you can also spot Koltur from the villages Velbastaður and Kirkjubøur.

Koltur has been visited by only few people. Number of inhabitants living on Koltur island: 1 person.
