Kollafjordur ( Faroe Islands )
Kollafjørður is a village in the Faroe Islands, located on the island of Streymoy. The village is centered along the northern shore of the Kollafjørður Fjord. Above the fjord is a narrow valley which stretches over a hilly region where trails are used for trekking. The village is located 21.8 kilometres by road north of Torshavn.
A landmark in the village is a typical Faroese wooden church from 1837. Standing close to the coast, it is a black-tarred wooden building with a turf roof, white painted windows, and a small white bell tower on the roof's western end. Inside, everything is made of unvarnished wood. Another highlight is the annual village festival, Sundslagsstevna, which is celebrated in early July.
