    The Seal woman statue in the village of Mikladalur is the perfect stop after your hike to Kalsoy Lighthouse.

    The likely reason you would take the ferry and trek all the way to Kalsoy would be to hike and revel in the amazement of the lighthouse. However, don’t overlook the seal woman statue. A mere 8 minute drive from the Trøllanes parking area for the lighthouse, the town of Mikladalur is another cute, quaint Faroe village.

    There are a few areas to park but all are a stones throw away from the 50 or so steps leading down to the Selkie.

    The statue itself is quite stunning, but it’s the surrounding views of the nearby islands as its backdrop, which make it even more exceptional. Make sure you see this if you on the island of Kalsoy.
