Above the fjord

A stunning view above Kollafjørður, a fjord in Streymoy, Faroe Islands.

Streymoy, the Island of the Currents, is the largest and most populated island of the Faroe Islands. The capital, Tórshavn is located there.
The island has an long shape and stretches roughly in northwest-southeast. There are two deeply indented fjords in the southeast: Kollafjørður (in the picture) and Kaldbaksfjørður. The island is mountainous, especially in the northwest, with the highest peak Kopsenni (789 metres). This area is dominated by over 500-metre high cliffs, known as Vestmannabjørgini, the Cliffs of Vestmanna.
Streymoy is separated from the nearby Eysturoy, second largest island of the Faroe Islands, by the narrow sound of Sundini in the east. To the west lies the island of
Vágar, and to the south the island of Sandoy. Three additional smaller islands are situated around the southern tip of Streymoy: Koltur, Hestur and Nólsoy.
