Gjógv - Photo by Ævar Guðmundsson

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. This beautiful quiet and well-preserved village is idyllically located, closed in by mountains to all sides. With less than 50 inhabitants, all living in old timber-walled and turf-roofed cottages, Gjógv has an 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. (Gjógv, Eysturoy, Faroe Islands)
