Dubbed “the flute” because of it’s thin shape and many road-tunnels, the island of Kalsoy offers truly astonishing views. With 13 peaks, 11 valleys, and four villages with a combined population of less than 150, this island is the perfect place to go exploring. The hike to the lighthouse at Kallur, the northern tip of Kalsoy, is particularly impressive. Kalsoy also has a rich bird life, including puffins, storm petrels and black guillemots.
