THE NORTH

The weather was so bad last two days that we just parked above the Eiði. There were low clouds with typical Faroese fog and rain. Today we got bit better weather, so we have started our exploration of the North. Our first stop was Gjógv. It is the most northern village on the island of Eysturoy, named after a 200-metre long sea-filled gorge that runs from the village into the ocean. Then our journey continued through Leirvík to Klaksvík – the second biggest city on the islands. We made short stop by the Klaksvík’s main site – Christianskirkja (Christian’s church) which is one of the first major modern churches in Scandinavia that is inspired by the old Nordic style. Our plan was to get to Múli via scenic road 75, but we did not make it through the tunnel which was only 3,1 meters high (and our navigation did not know it – as usually). After some food shopping we drove around Eysturoy Island to our final destination Saksun.
