TjørnuvíkThe northernmost village of Streymoy, surrounded by big mountains and with a beautiful beach, overlooking the giant and the witch (Risin og kellingin) lies a beautiful small villages called Tjørnuvík. Here you will experience an astonish nature, with a feeling you are flying 1000 years back to the viking age! Its definitely something worth adding to your bucket list.
Excavation has prove that the village is one of the oldest villages in Faroe Islands. In 1956 they found several tombs which belongs way back to the old viking age. They found also some interesting Celtic bronze pin that archaeologists interpreted as a proof that there was connection between the Norse settlements in Britain and the Faroe Islands.
The village is very small with a population around 65 people, and this is also a perfect place to see the popular Giant and the Witch which are standing 71 and 68 meters above the sea level.

Awesome place with an big beach. The village is like in a deep valley, and feels like you are in a lord of the rings movie. I will have to go back another time!
