Trælanípa is a perpendicular rock wall, which juts 142 meters upwards out of the sea. Trælanípa translates to Slave Cliff. Supposedly, it has gotten its name from the Viking Age when slaves were pushed off the mountain.
Be careful not to get too close to the edge as it is steep! Depending on the weather you can see the southernmost part of Streymoy, Hestur, Koltur, Sandoy, Skúvoy and Suðuroy from here.
At the end of Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn there are great sightseeing opportunities:
Bøsdalafossur, the 30 m high waterfall flowing directly into the Atlantic Ocean.
Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn – and don’t forget the viewpoint for the optical illusion where Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn lake looks like it is floating high above the sea – the lake above the ocean.
