Trælanípan (Slave Cliff)

From Trælanípan, in English Slave Cliff, you can see the lake overlooking the salty North Atlantic ocean. This is one of the most popular spots in the Faroe Islands. The trailhead to Traelanipa is very close to Vagar Airport on Vágar Island.

The hike from the parking area 5 minutes from the airport takes 1 hour. The parking lot beside a small shed from where the hike to Trælanípa starts is located next to the village Miðvágur. There are signs in Miðvágur pointing you in the direction to the shed.

You will hike along the lake Leitisvatn on your way to Trælanípa. This is also the lake that you will see perched above the ocean from the sheer cliff. The waterfall Bøsdalafossur drops from the lake into the ocean just beside this popular attraction.
