The Abandoned Village Of Múli In The Faroe Islands Is Insanely Eerie

There’s remote, and then there’s Múli: a deserted hamlet on the island of Borðoy, one of the 18 islands which make up the archipelago of the Faroe Islands - a tiny country in the North Atlantic.

The village, which has never had more than 25 inhabitants, could only be accessed by boat, or a long hike from the nearest community 7km away.

The hamlet is an eerie relic of bygone periods when communities were often cut off from the outside world for months at a time. 

But Múli, which can trace its roots back to 1350, now has a permanent place in history - one of its houses has been transported to an open-air museum in Sorgenfri, Denmark.
