Step out of the city life by going to Trollkonufingur and Cleft Of Gjogv.

And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Mariukirkjan, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Vesturkirkjan Church, take in the dramatic scenery at Fossa, and buy something for everyone on your list at SMS Shopping Center.
