Breathtaking view over Kvivik Village

My timing was great as the breakfast was ready as I back to Jatnahouse, and it started to rain a little outside. Hybrid brief that he will swap some itinerary as the weather today was predicted to be bad hence it wasn't suitable for long trekking initially planned today.

The new plan today will mainly focus on exploration on Streymoy Island, the most populated island here in Faroe Island. Departed sharp at 9 AM, we have a quick stop at Sandavágur first mainly to have a quick look at the very picturesque church! We did not stop for long as the strong wind keep hitting us and also the rain as well, on and off.

Looked like a LEGO wasn't it?

We then passing through the under water Vágar Tunnel with the length of nearly 5KM to bring us over to Streymoy Island, and have a first stop near to village of Leynar, with most of the houses was build on high cliff. There was also a beach there with the name of Leynasandur.

Continue down the road, we reach another village by the bay with the name of Kvivik. The village seems to be more concentrated with the houses all build close to each other. We parked the cars on the visitor car parks and only manage to explore for a while before the bad weather hit us again. However, Hybrid lead the road, drive up high to a truly breathtaking view point that able to over look the whole village, and the amazing bay of Vágafjørður as well. Once again, the Island of Koltur came into the picture as well, and it seem to be just everywhere!
