From the beach, we will look put to the renowned sea stacks The Giant and the Witch, who, according to legend, tried to drag the Faroe Islands to Iceland.

This is on our wayt to visit the cosy village of Gjógv, named after its deep gorge and known for its beautiful and unique scenery. At this point, we’ll take our lunch and take our time to stroll around the village and enjoy the peculiar beauty of the place. For those who wishe to, there’s a short walk along a path out to a viewpoint slightly above the village. Maintaining the path was one of many projects recently completed through the Faroes’ successful Voluntourism programme.
