The Photography Tour | Funningur, Gjógv, Tjørnuvík
Capture the most sought-after attractions on northern Streymoy and Eysturoy on camera. You will join a local guide and photographer who will take you to the best attractions on the beautiful northern part of the islands Streymoy and Eysturoy.
Your tour guide will pick you up in the morning in Tórshavn. If another pick up location suits you better, that's no problem at all.
Your first stop will be Gjógv. Here you will see the impressive gorge in the middle of the scenic village of Gjógv. You will walk 200 metres along the edge of the ravine until you reach the end and highest point. From this spot you will have a breathtaking view of the entire gorge together with the village and the wide mountain sides. Experiencing the untamed nature surrounding the cosy village life in Gjógv is breathtaking. You will also have the opportunity to come close to the rich birdlife here.
Afterwards, your tour guide will take a short drive uphill, followed by a walk to the famous Hvíthamar site where you get to experience the panoramic view overlooking Funningsfjørður fjord. This is one of the most stunning fjords in the Faroe Islands. Hvíthamar is situated on the steep ridge halfway between Funningur and Middagsfjall mountain.
Next, you will stop along the mountain road to snap the village Funningur from the mountainside of Slættaratindur. This is where you will see the iconic road zigzagging its way towards the small village Funningur.
Taking the scenic route back, we will stop above the village Eiði to enjoy the view of the legendary Risin & Kellingin (the Giant and the Witch). Finally, you will head back towards Streymoy and stop at Faroe Island's largest waterfall, Fossá, whereafter you will follow the epic road to the remote village Tjørnuvík. In this secluded place on earth, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and have a stroll on the beautiful black beach.
Your tour guide will make sure that you will stand on the very same spot where all the well known photos are taken from. Oh, once you see them with your own eyes (and camera!) prepare to be amazed.
You will join a tour that takes advantage of the ever changing light in the Faroe Islands. Expect to see several season during the course of the day!
Once you reach the different locations, your tour guide will assist you getting the perfect camera angle that will do for the best shot. The tour guide will inspire you but let you take your photos yourself.
