    I've been on this mountain of barely 749 metres high on the West coast of the island of Streymoy not far from Torshavn, to admire one of the most beautiful and fascinating things of nature ... the total solar eclipse. In fact it is one of the places in the world where you can see her completely. All of a sudden he started getting cold, the animals were restless and the sky became dark before we opened a wonderful spectacle with the Sun, for a few seconds, it was completely black. Experience I will never forget!

Where to stay in Streymoy

Although small villages usually have some available rooms with commendable service, the island's capital--Torshavn--offers the most options, ranging from 4-star hotels to guesthouses and lodges. Most hotels are situated in the city center near the harbor, but you can also find comfortable rooms on the town's western outskirts. Some parts of the island offer good camping sites, decent alternatives for adventurous outdoorsy types.
