Upon arrival at Vágar airport you will already find yourself surrounded by impressive nature. At the airport a shuttle awaits you that will take you to Tórshavn where you will stay at Hotel Føroyar for the next six nights. If you like peace and quiet and being in the middle of nature, then Hotel Føroyar is the hotel for you.
Your first adventure will be visiting the saga island Sandoy and the historical village of Kirkjubøur. Through the newest subsea tunnel on the islands, we drive to Sandoy. Hear the saga stories while we drive from village to village. Before heading back to Tórshavn we stop in Kirkjubøur. Here we visit the roughly 900-year-old Roykstovan and the Ólav's church from AD 1111, named after King Olav the Holy. This church is the oldest church in the Faroe Islands and is still in use.
Today you will visit the heart of the Faroe Islands. You will visit the villages Saksun, Tjørnuvík and Gjógv. In Saksun you will see the seawater lagoon and the beautiful old church. Tjørnuvík is known for its magical black sandy beach surrounded by high mountains and stunning view of Risin & Kellingin, also known as the Giant and the Hag. Legend has it that they tried to drag the Faroe Islands to Iceland. You will also hike the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur, but don’t worry the hike will start from the mountain road and give you a 550-meter head start. Following the hike, you will visit the lovely Gjógv that is named after its amazing gorge. In Gjógv you will enjoy your lunch and take your time strolling around the village and enjoy it’s beauty. On this day you will also see the highest waterfall, Fossá.
Your day starts with pick up at the hotel or by meeting at the ferry port in Sørvágur. Today you will experience the stunning islet Tindhólmur – and just like on the island Mykines – puffins breed here, so if you are lucky, you will be able to see the puffins up close and get some beautiful shots. If you are a little adventurous you will also get the chance to lake swim in one of the most amazing surroundings, the Faroe Islands have to offer.
Is open for you to explore on your own or add on another guided tour. You can explore Tórshavn, the smallest capital in the world. Take a walk through the city and visit the old part of town. You can also visit the craft and wool shops along with a cozy café. If you like artifacts, you can visit several museums in the city.
On this day you will explore the Northern Islands. You will visit the wonderful Borðoy, where you will explore the city Klaksvík, which is known as the heart of the fishing industry. Then you will visit the secluded village Kunoy – which funny enough is on the island Kunoy – before going to the beautiful village Viðareiði, the northernmost village in the Faroe Islands. On your way back to Tórshavn you will drive through the impressive Subsea tunnel with a roundabout.
In the evening there will be a table waiting for you at Ruts restaurant, which is located at Hotel Føroyar, where you will be able to eat delicious food consisting mainly of local and seasonal ingredients. To complement the innovative menus, you get to enjoy the best view in town overlooking Tórshavn, Nólsoy and the fjord.
A shuttle taxi will pick you up and your guided experience has almost come to an end. We hope that this travel experience has richened you with old stories and traditions, great food, and amazing nature.
