The wonders of the Faroe Islands are mind-blowing

The Faroe Islands, a few small islands in the north of the Atlantic Ocean, are diplomatically a self-governing territory belonging to Denmark.

It lies northwest of the British Isles, slightly southeast of Iceland. About 54,000 people live in these islands, which have an area of ​​1399 square kilometers.

Although there are several small islands, the Faroe Islands have many places that have attracted tourists. In terms of topography and climate, some of these islands, which show temperate and marine characteristics, can be seen in some heavenly places.

Mulafossar Falls

Until 2004, Gasdalur, a small village on Vogar Island in the Faroe Islands, was in a very remote state. This area, which was hidden from the world at that time, has attracted the attention and attraction of many local and foreign tourists. At present, the transportation barriers to reach it have been largely overcome.


Located in the coastal village of Gasadalur, Mulafossar Falls is unique in that it tumbles into the sea. Falling from a coastal rock at a height of 60 meters or a hundred feet, it creates a very mind-blowing scene.

The area with this waterfall has been largely uninhabited even today. Because of this, its natural beauty has not been damaged. Due to the nature of the waterfall, it is easiest to view it from some distance away.

Trelanipa

‘Trailanipa’ can be called a very mind-blowing place located in the Faroe Islands. Located on a high sea level, Sorvagsvan Lake here is nicknamed ‘Floating Lake’. From a distance, this lake appears as if it is floating. It is located close to the only lighthouse in the Faroe Islands.


The mountain pass where this lake is located is called ‘Telanipan’ or ‘Slave Pass’ and it is possible to reach this lake after about an hour’s walk from Guvatpotupola. The path to this walk is made without such a big slope, so it is not that difficult to reach it.

A natural coastal rock reef called ‘Gateuskoradranger’ has been created near this lake. Located at a height of 116 meters above sea level, one can see a breathtaking view from this top. A small river also flows along the Trelanipan ridge, and one can go boating in this lake and river.

Dranganir

Located in the Faroe Islands, the Dranganir Sea region is a place that will make fond memories for anyone who loves the sea. This region is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Faroe Islands. Boat trips are provided to the visitors here.

Although this thrilling boat ride is risky, passing through many coastal rocks, accidents are very minimal because a team that is very familiar with it operates these rides.

Tired


Located in the northernmost Faroe Islands, the village of Vidaredi is the site of its northernmost human settlement. Its hills and forested coasts create a strange beauty. The ancient church there is also a place that has gained tourist attraction. Visitors can also hike one of the main hills, Villingadalfiore. When you reach the top, you can see a breathtaking view.

Kallur Lighthouse

This lighthouse is considered to be one of the most beautiful man-made structures found in the Faroe Islands. Due to its location on Kalsoi Island and the beautiful scenery around it, this lighthouse has been a constant tourist attraction. Because of its beauty, it has been used as a backdrop for the James Bond movie ‘No Time to Die’.


To reach Kalsoy Island, you have to take a 20-minute boat ride from Clakswick. The lighthouse has to be reached by stopping the boat in a village on the outskirts, and on foot, you can see rock towers sloping perpendicularly to the sea on both sides of the lighthouse. They are about 200 meters high, and from the way to the lighthouse, the lighthouse and the surrounding scenery start to appear in a very mind-blowing way.

Jog

The village of ‘Jog’, located in a rural area of ​​the Faroe Islands, on a high ground by the sea, is also a place that has won the tourist attraction. The quaintly painted small houses here, the panoramic view of the coastal highlands and the healthy climate have made it a tourist attraction.

On clear weather days, the village has facilities for surfing on the suburban beach and accommodation facilities are also available for tourists visiting here.

In addition to the above places, there are many other beautiful places in the Faroe Islands. Tranquil villages with thatched houses, Whitmer with impressive natural scenery, the picturesque coastal village of Chodnovic, and the Westmana sea cliffs are just a few.
