Gjogv is a fascinating geological feature, a natural safe harbour. We saw puffins flying in and out of the cliffside above it and there are a couple of nice cafes in the village.

If you have bothered to drive all the way to Gjogv, you might as well walk down the stairs to see the cleft. It's easy to realize that this feature was considered a gift for the local fishermen.

Our cruise ship landed on Runavik. We took a half day cruise to the town of Gjogv. We passed through jawdropping scenery on our drive to the town of Gjogv. The town is famous for the gorge and with the rare gorgeous weather we had,...More

Really nice and idyllic. Lovely scenery and nice surrounding area for walking trips. Situated at Eysturoy.

We stopped here for a late morning snack (cold pancakes and instant coffee). The town was O.K., I guess. I could take it or leave it. It was a long ride to get here and saw some mossy hilly / mountainous regions along the way....More

A lot of beautiful things to see: the harbour, the panorama when descending in the valley, the very attractive hills around the village etc. A beautiful gem in the Faroe Islands.

Nice natural harbor. Much like other small natural harbors... Worth driving up to? Meh. Depends on the alternative. Cute village though.

What a beautiful village. It was raining when we were there, but we ate waffles in such small house. Vaut le détour dix fois.

Thank Paul C
