Traditional 4 Hour Faroese Beer Tour Including Hike to Kirkjubøur
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.

Its an easy hike, but the last part of the trip may be challenging, especially if you are afraid of heights. Also, the weather in the Faroe Islands can be a little tough, and in case of really bad weather forecasts we might be forced to cancel a planned trip. But, most of the times, even when it is a bit rainy, windy and/or foggy, we will carry out the hike. But in this case, the trip might then last a little longer. The tour guide will notify you of all of this in advance.
