Faroe Islands lake effect
The dramatic plunge serves as an optical illusion, however. The lake stands only 100 feet above sea level. But don’t tell this to the countless slaves thrown off the steep cliffs.
Traelanipa cliffs translate to “Slave Cliff.”
It used to be the site where Viking settlers would push disobedient slaves, mostly women from Ireland and Scotland, down 466 feet into the sea.
One can take a 40-minute hike to the top of the cliffs and stare down into the abyss for a magical view of the Atlantic Ocean.
