Akraberg Lighthouse Lodge
There isn’t anything else quite like this place. Akraberg Lighthouse Lodge is the southernmost house on the Faroe Islands, and for more than a century, the lighthouse at Akraberg and its lodge have stood perched on the awe-inspiring cliffs that greet migrant birds when they first arrive in the spring and bid them farewell as they journey south again in the winter.
This place soothes the soul, calms the mind and delights the eye. Isolated in stunning surroundings, your only neighbours are the birds and sheep that share the scenery (more than 100 different types of birds have been spotted in Akraberg). And yet the idyllic village of Sumba with its well-assorted village shop is only a 5-minute drive away (or a 30-40 minute walk which we can highly recommend). Drive another 5 minutes, and you reach stunning Beinisvørð – the highest sea cliff on the island. Or hike 30-40 minutes to ‘Blæðingin’, the only stone glacier in the country. Because there is no light pollution, stargazers are in for a treat – and if you’re lucky, you can marvel at the Northern lights in the winter.
From Akraberg you can easily reach all the villages on the island by car. Still, we predict that you might want to stay put and let your senses enjoy the beauty surrounding you or cosy up with some hot chocolate in the rustic and comfortable lodge if the weather is best enjoyed indoors on a windy day.
Each of the four bedrooms boasts marvellous views of the ocean. One room is downstairs, with a queen-size bed and a single bed. Three rooms are upstairs, one with a double bed and two with two single beds each. There are two bathrooms downstairs. In addition, there are two living rooms, one kitchen and one dining room downstairs. The lodge offers space for up to 8 people.
