Your trip to the most northern village on Eysturoy starts in the capital Tórshavn. From Tórshavn you will head to Gjógv. This village is set in outstanding surroundings. The mountain road from the highest point on the tour and down the valley to Gjógv is amazing. You will pass Slættaratindur the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands just before driving down the narrow road to Gjógv.
When in Gjógv, you will witness the remarkable gorge on which you will find the villager's only harbour. You can take the stairs down to the gorge and walk along the edge to the spot where many travellers want to get a photo of the gorge and the village together. You will most likely see the cold North Atlantic waves splashing against the shore.
