With less than 50 inhabitants, all living in old timber-walled and turf-roofed cottages, Gjógv has an abundance of charm and appeal
Gjógv 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. Nominated by the Nordic Council for the Nature & Environmental Award in 2014, this beautiful quiet and well-preserved village is idyllically located, closed in by mountains to all sides.
With less than 50 inhabitants, all living in old timber-walled and turf-roofed cottages, Gjógv has an abundance of charm and appeal.

The village includes a charming teashop, a guesthouse (Gjáargarður) and a campsite, and is located approximately a one-hour drive from Tórshavn.
