Join this spectacular hike where you will be served two cans of tasty Faroese beers. Coffee and tea is also included in the price as well as some delicious snacks.

This is a 4-hour guided tour along the cozy walking route from Tórshavn to the village of Kirkjubøur, one of the oldest villages in the Faroe Islands. You will enjoy the peaceful nature along the route.

You will meet and greet the tour guide in Steinatún, the downtown bus-stop area in Tórshavn. From here you will jump on a bus with your tour guide, which will take you to the outskirts of Tórshavn. This is where the walking route to Kirkjubøur begins. Expect an eight-minute bus-ride from Tórshavn city centre.

On the way to Kirkjubøur, you will pass the site where Faroe Islanders have gathered for open air public meetings since the second half of the 19th century - with flags, speeches and patriotic songs composed for the occasions.

You will have a great view of the islands Sandoy, Hestur, Koltur and Vágar - and of Tórshavn and Nólsoy before you go round "Reynsmúli" on your way out of Tórshavn.

On the trip, you will be served two cans of tasty Faroese beers. Coffee is also included in the price as well as some delicious snacks.

You will stop a couple of times along the route - to enjoy the food and beer and to relax. And you will be treated to some fun local history, and it has to be said: the view from the top is spectacular (provided it is not foggy, of course).

When you arrive in Kirkjubøur, you will have the opportunity to stroll around the village and enjoy the historical sites there:

1) Magnus Cathedral ruins from about 1300 

2) Saint Olav´s Church, the oldest still used church of the Faroes dating from 12th century

3) Kirkjubøargarður, the oldest still inhabited wooden house of the world from 11th century.

You will take Bus 6 on our way back to Tórshavn, Steinatún. Your tour guide will make sure to get you all the way back to the tour's starting point.

  1. Baiba Birina

    The tour was amazing! Even though we went up the hill in cloudy conditions and didn’t see much, Jens was very entertaining and knowledgeable about all the things we asked about. We gained a great insight in Faroese culture while enjoying some nice local beers and some rather windy conditions.
    The hike lasted around 2,5 hours as we didn’t stop a lot to take the view in. It is not a difficult climb – the first 20-30 minutes is uphill which can be daunting but it is not bad at all; and the last 15 minutes you have to be careful on the rocks – thus good hiking shoes are highly recommended!
    The tour was amazing and it is very recommend for beginner hikers and people who would like to take the view in (if the weather allows).

    I just wanted to leave a short review on the guided hike my mum and I had with Jens after booking through your site.

    Before the hike Jens had already emailed a good, detailed itinerary so we knew where to be and when. The route was well marked and Jens was happy to give us plenty of information when we asked for it as well as the great talk that he gave as we were walking. Whilst the route is well marked with cairns and posts, having Jens along made the experience so much better as he was able to give us local insight into the route and area. The bonus of having Faroese beer along the way was also very worthwhile. Thank you, Jens and we would recommend to anyone.

    The guide was fantastic, and I was lucky enough to find a good weather. A bit challenging towards the end, but it was advertised in the description. Highly recommended!

  5. Michael Clement

    We had a very good tour. Jens is a very nice guy and fun to go on tour with.

  6. Stine Stender

    Our guide Jens took us over the mountain. The guide is really good and he knows a lot about history. Highly recommended.

  7. Shonnell

    We loved everything about this tour. It was a hike we would have struggled to do on our own as it was hard to navigate, so we are very happy we went with a guide. The snacks and drinks provided were great and we learnt so much about the Faroe Islands from Jens. Highly recommend doing this tour as you get so much more than just a hike.

  8. Ashby

    An excellent hike with a friendly and knowledgeable guide! Jens brought along some very enjoyable local, home-prepared foods, along with Faroese beer and coffee.
    Arriving on foot in Kirkjubour was so much more rewarding than by car or bus. Highly recommended.
