104 viewsHúsavík (Danish: Husevig) is an old village located on the east of the Isle of Sandoy, in Húsavík Municipality, Faroe Islands.

In the center of Húsavík there is a ruin called ‘Heimi á Garði’. It is said to be the remains of a farm that was built by ‘Lady of the House in Húsavík'. She was a strict and wealthy lady who lived in the 14th century. She owned all the land in Húsavík and also had some properties in Norway. Legend has it that she buried two servants alive. It is also said that she got all her wealth, when she sold a golden horn to the King. The story goes that she found the golden horn in the ground, after dreaming of its location.

Mykines288 viewsThe village of Mykines is the only village on the island of Mykines.
During summer the population is higher as families who used to live on the island return to their houses there to spend their summer-vacation.

Mykines is popular with tourists. They come to experience Mykines-holmur, which is the main-attraction on the island. Mykines-holmur is a freestanding rock that is connected to Mykines by a small steal bridge
in an altitude of 35 meters. The rock is inhabited by thousands of seabirds.

In order to reach Mykines by boat the weather has to be quite nice. As this is not always the case in the Faroe Islands the island used to be isolated for weeks.
The ferry Sulan visits Mykines 1-3 times a week from 1st of May to 1st of November. During winter there
is no ferry to Mykines.
Nowadays it is possible to reach Mykines 3 times a week by helicopter.

A stone forest can be found on Mykines. It consists of 55-meter high columns of basalt (stone). Tradition says that a real forest was to be found on Mykines in the old days. Then the King of Norway wanted people to pay taxes because they had this forest. The people lied to him and told him that there were no forests on their island. Hence the forest turned into stone.
