Slættaratindur by Night

Slættaratindur is, at 882m, the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands. Here shown in the moonlight, with a thin veil of snow near the summit, and the main road in the foreground. Reaching the top does not require climbing. Do fear the fog.

The shortest route starts on the south side of the mountain, rounds the summit on the west side, and enters the top plateau in its northeast corner. Until about 1950, the top was covered by a thick blanket of moss. These days, the top is naked rock.
