Akraberg Lighthouse


Akraberg is the southernmost tip of the Faroe Islands. Five kilometres south of the village of Sumba, at the southern tip of the Faroe Islands, lies Akraberg. The 14-metre tall cylinder-shaped lighthouse at the edge of the Faroes has withstood storms since 1909.
Akraberg offers more than a post-card-worthy landscape and here you will get an outstanding panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean.

Remains from WWII and legends of Frisian settlers tell a story of a place less isolated than it might seem.

To ger here, you take the route to Sumba and then to Akraberg, along a narrow road.
