Trøllkonufingur57 viewsWitch’s finger
There is a freestanding rock to the east of the town called Trøllkonufingur, which means Witch’s finger. It is said to have been climbed only once, and the story goes like this:

Frederick VII of Denmark visited the Faroe Islands in 1844, and a man climbed the Witch’s finger so that he could wave to the King as he sailed past. Later, when the man had come down, he realized that he had left one of his gloves on the top of the rock, so decided to climb it again. On his way to the top he fell and died.

Saksun479 viewsSaksun is a picturesque village in the bottom of what was once an inlet surrounded by high mountains. The inlet formed a deep and good natural harbor. However a storm blocked the inlet with sand. The river that used to run into the inlet now formed a fresh-water lake in the former inlet.

393 viewsWindmills are another resource and more accessible resource although they would have to be specially designed to Faroese circumstances due to the harsh wind conditions on the islands. Presently SEV is experimenting with a new type of windmill which has raised high expectations and if proven successful might be one of the major energy resources for the islands in the future.
