Hagagjógv is a gorge located just north of the village Selatrað on Eysturoy. This gorge is special because it is formed from hexagonal (and sometimes 4-, 5-, and 7-sided) columns, and one column lies obliquely across the gorge halfway down the rappel. From an old painting, we know that the column has been there at least since 1789. In the old days, when ropes were hard to come by, the farmer used to hang the sheep he had slaughter under the column, so thieves couldn’t get to it. You’ll have a chance to walk across the column on your way down.
