This gorgeous lake sits close to the edge of a cliff. It’s also above sea level, and apparently has some of the most beautiful views around the Faroe Islands.
Optical illusions have intrigued us for centuries. When found in nature, these wonders are even more compelling and fascinating.
Lake Sørvágsvatn is called the “illusion-causing lake”. It will give you a whole new perspective. Also known as Leitisvatn Lake, this natural wonder is the largest lake on Island Vagar of the Faroe Islands.
When you see pictures of Lake Sørvágsvatn, there are some photos that make the viewer feel that the lake is much higher than the sea level. In fact, the lake is only about 30 meters above sea level, but the cliffs surrounding the lake are 100 meters above sea level, and combined with the camera’s position and perfect shooting angle make the viewer feels the lake is 100 meters above sea level.
The Faroe Islands offer countless awe-inspiring spots for the visitor’s eyes from waterfalls to natural wonders to explore both by land and by sea. This is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world you don’t want to miss it.
