See everything in a day! We will pick you up / drop you off at the Airport or Tórshavn. From there we'll cover all the must sees. A full day tour of 7 hours jam-packed with breathtaking views with stories to go with it. Your tour guide for the day grew up in the Faroes so she knows the best places to go see and knows a lot about it's history, legends and culture.

You will make 5-20 min breaks with walking included at the classic locations. And no worries if you want more time somewhere as this will just minus the time of something else. As long as you stay within the 7 hour timetable you'll be perfectly fine. This is your day and the tour guide wants it to be perfect for you.

Gásadalur, being on the top spot of must sees on the Guide to Faroe Islands website, is a must do for a tour like this one. You will make 2 stops here. You will walk to the Waterfall Múlafossur and also make a short stop in the cute village of Gásadalur (option to get food at the Gásadals farm).

Bøur, with the jaw dropping view of Drangarnar and Tindhólm. You'll stop here and walk down to the beach, and walk between the traditional houses and the old church there and see the old boats that are built in the traditional Viking style.

Trøllkonufingur, When driving to Trøllkonufingur you will pass the iconic church Sandavágs Kirkja in Sandavágur where you can make a short stop if you like. Trøllkonufingur, The Troll Woman’s Finger, also known as Witches Finger tells a story of a time when giants roamed the oceans. You will walk to this iconic cliff, passing a lovely river on the way.

Tjørnuvík, You'll do a short stop by the iconic Fossá waterfall on our way. You might have seen this almost 'overdone' double waterfall from travellers posting online. In Tjørnuvík you'll see right over to Risin & Kellingin, The Giant and The Witch, the iconic cliffs, when looking past the very large and gentle waves. Tjørnuvík is best beach for surfing in the Faroe Islands. In Tjørnuvík there will be the option to get coffee, tea and pancakes from a very nice local man.

Risin & Kellingin, You will follow The Giant and The Witch cliffs around the village of Eiði and see them from the other side on your way to Gjógv. These giants also have quite the story to tell.

Gjógv, the iconic little village built around the gorge. On your way you will pass the highest mountain in the Faroes, Slættaratindur.

Funningur, you will drive down the entertaining zig-zag road that you might have seen on photos. Funningur is a lovely quiet village.

Saksun, Seeing that Saksun is one of the Faroe Islands top destinations. Here we'll hike up above the village and look down upon the village and church above the laguna and we'll hike down to the church normally we'll have a little brake here.

There will of course also be opportunities to do other short stops on your way if you see something that you want to soak in for a moment. This is a laid back fun experience. The tour guide will bring warm tea and coffee and some Faroese delicacy to taste as well, and just have a fun and relaxing day with you. All the hikes are short and very easy, a good fit for any traveler. We do how ever recomend you rather use your time soaking in the experience than rushing allong. So some stops we recommend you cut out for a more pleasant relaxing day. Because not all sights are created equal and are as magical, some are more historical etc. But it's all up to you what you choose.

Now, don't hesitate booking this classic tour where you will experience as much of the Faroe Islands in one day as possible. Check availability by choosing a date.

    Had a wonderful day tour with Annika – saw so much of the islands and had a lot of interesting chat about the life and history of the Faroes.

  2. Neil Hunt

    Best. Day. Ever. This tour was so, so good – seven hours flew by so quickly – we could have carried on for hours. Annika clearly loves the Faroe Islands and was the perfect guide – friendly, engaging and enthusiastic.

    We saw so many things – and a lot of them we would not have found on our own. Because there was just the two of us, we didn’t feel rushed – Annika adjusted seamlessly to our pace. (Also, we got to eat some home-made pancakes, and try some whale meat, and tea, coffee, and biscuits.)

    You should absolutely take this tour – preferably on your first full day. That way you get a wonderful overview of the islands and their history, and you have some inspiration for what to do with the rest of your time. If we come back to the Islands – and I hope we will very soon – we are totally taking this tour again.

    The tour was great and we got to see so much of the islands that I would highly recommend it. Annika was an excellent guide and very informative. I would love to do it all over again!

  4. Jessamy Perkins

    An amazing tour that allows you to see all the key sites in one day. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting the Faroe Islands.
    Annika is a great guide, knowledgeable of the islands, and easy company as we explored these picturesque locations. We spent the ideal amount of time at each locale, but with the opportunity for longer if something catches your eye. Some great experiences on this tour.
    As always on the Faroes, dress for the forecast weather conditions.
