This hike was surprisingly easy. Not to mention the amazing views that we always get where ever we are in Faroe Islands. Would probably consider a bit unlucky for us as the day that we went on this hike, the wind was extremely strong making...More

An easy hike out from the village, the views are quite special. Whilst the proximity to the cliff edge may not be suitable for those with vertigo, hikers easily choose how close to the edge they get. Seeing the cliffs, the lake and the ocean...More

The hike around the lake and the surrounding cliffs was the first things we did once in the island. It was an easy hike that leads to the amazing cliffs at the end of the lake. The imposing scenery is immediately evident once you reach...More

The hike along the shore of Leitisvatn to Traelanipa is an easy walk with unbelievable rewards. The view of the ocean and the lake from the cliff creates an illusion of the lake being on top of the ocean. Be aware of the weather, however....More

The lakeside trail is pleasant and easy. The lake dumps into the ocean near the Trælanípa cliffs, which is an incredible sight. Try to go here on a clear day.

We loved this walk. About 45mins one way, we got caught in rain only to have it clear to brilliant sunshine with stunning views along the coast. A must do!

I love to walk to Leitisvatn and Trælanípa, winter and summer, autumn and spring. In sunshine and wind. Fascinating in all weather.

In Midvagur there is a sign leading up the hill. It can be difficult to see so go slowly through the town. You can park the car up the hill. From there it is a 3 km walk each way. It’s easy to follow the...More

This lake has nothing to offer individually but it plays an important role in your Instagram-worthy photos which you will never forget for the rest of your life. Especially, if you own a DRONE!! You can see a lot in this 90 minutes hike up...More

If you're visiting the Faroe Islands, the hike around this lake is an absolute must. It takes you out towards some dramatic cliffs and back along the lakeside. If you love landscapre photography, it doesn't get much better than this.
