Village of Gásadalur below Heinanova mountain, with waterfall cascading over cliff into the Atlantic Ocean, Faroe Islands (@ Kimberley Coole/Lonely Planet)
- Welcome to Mykinesfjørður, under the shadows of Heinanova, where Gásadalur lies in the sýsla of Vágar.""What are we talking about?
- These islands are in the middle of nowhere, miles from any mainland.""Is that why locals tend to stare in a rather sheepish way?
- At the last count, just 17 people were said to live in this tiny village.""Take a look around and tell us you\re not tempted
- These lands can be found about halfway between Norway and Iceland.""But they\re actually under the sovereignty of which country?
