Gjógv is a beautiful little Nordic village, full of turf roofed homes, many timber built. With parking, public toilets, a tea rooms open in the tourist season, camping, an Airbnb and a guesthouse it's a lovely place to both visit and stay.

Theres plenty of coastal paths and the beach to discover, we saw a seal bobbing up and down in the water on our visit. The village itself is small, inhabited by around 50 people and oh so charming - the stream that flows through it and the child's turf roofed playhouse especially!

If you are visiting after recent rainfall, a warning that the cliff path is all grassed and can prove very slippery.
