Cleft Of Gjogv, Gjogv

4.7
#2 of 14 in Parks in Faroe Islands
Cleft Of Gjogv represents perhaps the most famous feature of the small village. Here, seawater penetrates the natural rift between two huge stones. If you take a walk to the shore, you'll see wooden stairs that go down to the water in the cleft. This is a small, quiet cove where you can take some time to watch the waves and enjoy the sea breeze.
