Geocache Description:

Take a Brake

a micro by okvalle

While driving north (or south), take a brake for this cache close to Hósvík.
You need to bring your own pen, since this is a micro.

Når du kjører nordover (eller sørover), ta en pause ved rasteplassen like ved Hósvík. Du må ta med penn eller blyant, siden dette er en micro.

You can stop her, and have a lunch brake, and enjoying the view. The village you see on the other side of the sound, is Selatrað.

Selatrað lies on the west-coast of Eysturoy and enjoys the view over Sundalagið, which is the sound between the islands Eysturoy and Streymoy.

The houses in Selatrað are spread over the hills and are not as close to each other as they typically are in a Faeroese village.

Above the village is a small plantation. It was planted out in 1913.

The church in Selatrað is from 1927.

The ferry that connected Streymoy and Eysturoy used to sail from Selatrað to Hósvík. All traffic between the two islands therefore passed through Selatrað. This traffic stopped when a bridge was built to a village north of Selatrað.

A scout-centre in the village has room for 200 persons in tents and also some cabins.



Du kan stoppe og ta en lunshpause her, samt nyte utsikten. Bygden du ser på den andre siden er Selatrað

Selatrað ligger midt på vestsiden av Eysturoy og nyter utsigten over Sundalagið som er sundet mellem Eysturoy og Streymoy.

Husene i bygden ligger relativt spredt. Der ligger en liten plantasje over bygden. Den blev plantet i 1913.

Kirken i Selatrað er fra 1927.

Fergen fra Streymoy la til i Selatrað og all trafikken fra Tórshavn til Eysturoy gikk gjennom bygden.

Denne trafikken opphørte da det i 1975 ble bygd en bro mellom øyene.

Der er et speidersenter i bygden som har teltplads til 200 personer, og en del hytter.
