The small picturesque settlement Gjógv (Gorge) on the north of the island Eysturoy has become a popular place for tourists to visit in recent years. The village was named for a 200-metre (650 ft) long sea-filled gorge that runs north to sea from the village. The village is close to Slættaratindur the highest peak on the Faroes.
