Covering an area of 3.4 sq km (1.3 sq mi), Lake Leitisvatn ranks as the largest lake on the Faroe islands. Visitors come here to witness the lake's optical illusion: despite being only 27 m (90 ft) above sea level, a steep cliff in front of it makes it seem much higher when observed from a certain angle. In addition to its dramatic panorama of rock formations, a scenic waterfall flows from the lake.
