lake sorvagsvatn, faroe islands 1
PLACE: Lake Sørvágsvatn
LOCATION: Vágar, Faroe Islands, Denmark
NOTORIOUS: lake above the ocean
COORDINATES: 62° 3′ 0″ N, 7° 14′ 0″ W
CURRENCY: Danish Krone

You’ll be pretty upset to find out that this image is a slight optical illusion. It seems like the lake is way higher than the ocean but it’s actually only 30 meter above the sea level. The cliff the photographer is standing on is about 100 meters high. This means, the position of the camera and the angle of the shot makes it seem like the lake is about the same level as the cliff. Trippy and awesome.

However, it did make me discover this crazy little collection of islands between the coast of Norway and Iceland.I highly suggest you watch this video to learn more about them.

  1. These landscapes are beyond description, so surreal! I made the mistake before to call the Faroe Islands a “miniature Iceland” since I admire the great outdoors of both places. Another destination ranking quite well on the imaginary list of “places to see”…
    Btw, only today I discovered your site and really like it! Stunning visuals and and some really aesthetic voyages indeed, thanks for taking us along!
    Best wishes, Oliver
