Faeroe Islands Northern Isles

Kallur Lighthouse

A historic beacon on Kalsoy island offers panoramic views of the treacherous waters and dramatic cliffs of the Faroe archipelago.

Tips from the community

A painted lighthouse in a location so remote and untouched that it must have magically dropped from the sky, right? The Kallur Lighthouse is small on size, but big on cinematic quality. Dramatic surroundings, jagged cliffs, and unbelievable isolation contribute to a scene that feels almost fake. Located on the island of Kalsoy, this lighthouse has seen every type of weather imaginable and is host to a mind-blowing 360-degree view. Pro tip: A must-see if you can stomach the sheer drop-offs that surround it, and, as always, it’s encouraged to hike with a guide for safety and navigation.
