Mykines

Mykines is the only village on the  island by the same name. Although there are more than 40 houses in the village there are only 11 permanent residents, and for 8 months per year their only way out is by helicopter. With no grocery shop being on the island, the islanders also rely on the helicopter to bring provisions to last them through the long winter.

However, during the four month in summertime when the ferry sails out twice a day,  Mykines turns into a vibrant village that is bursting with life. It is a popular holiday destination for travellers from the mainland, and during summertime the number of residents drastically increases.
