VoM2: Toftir, Faroe Islands

The village on the right is Toftir. Across the water on the left is Strendur, an hour away by bus! It’s 30-minutes up one side of the fjord and 30-minutes back down the other side. If you look closely — click on the photo to embiggen — you can see how deep the fjord cuts into the land. This is typical for the Faroe Islands, and one of the country’s most consistently striking features. In some cases, the fjords cut all the way through, dividing the land into separate islands.
