Explore the best of the Faroe Islands in one day. You will see as much as possible of this undiscovered corner of the world together with an experienced tour guide with a strong passion for seaside views and waterfalls.

Your life-long native Faroe Islands tour guide has the local knowledge and will make sure that you get the most out of your time around the Faroe Islands. So this is what awaits you.

You will be picked up at your accommodation in the morning. Just let the tour guide know where you are staying once you book the tour. Now, you will hit the road and head straight to the island Vágar and the spectacular natural wonder in the small village Gásadalur. Here you will experience Múlafossur waterfall perched on the very edge and from where it plunges into the ocean. The scenery is so naturally and is the perfect place to recharge in nature.

Next, you will drive along the breathtakingly beautiful shoreline to the turf-roofed village Bøur. The view that you will encounter is otherworldy. You will have a great view of Tindhólmur islet and the famous sea arch Drangarnir. 

Now, you will head to the tranquil hideaway Saksun. This lovely little village is is tucked away in lush grass on the westside of Streymoy island. The village faces an increadable view of a hidden tidal lagoon.

You will now glide silently along the well-kept roads in the Faroe Islands and stop by the captivating Fossá Waterfall. Enjoy the power of nature for a while as you stand next to the crashing water beside this waterfall that drops in two levels. 

After this experience, you will head to the remote settlement Tjørnuvík nestled in unmatched natural beauty. Travellers say this hidden valley feels like reclaiming nature.  

Now, the peaceful village Gjógv is waiting for you to be discovered. Your tour guide will take you along windswept mountains and all the way to the natural gorge in Gjógv, where you can enjoy the trashing waves. 

Are you ready for a full-day of magical landscapes and seascapes? This will be one of the most incredible days of your life. Check availability by choosing a date.

  1. Signe Thorlaksen

    Jeg havde en super god dag og fik set en masse smukke spændende steder på Færøerne. Guide Elsa-Maria var behageligt gæstfrit selskab og kunne fortælle meget om det vi så, og kunne supplere med anekdoter fra hendes egen opvækst på øerne. Hun tog endda billeder og sendte dem via en app sammen med et kort over hvor vi havde været. Kaffe og stort udvalg af kiks/kager. Turen kan bestemt varmt anbefales- jeg tror det er meget svært at få lige så stort udbytte ved at tage rundt på egen hånd.

  2. Charlotte Louise Geoffrey Webster

    Cannot recommend enough! Lovely guide who was full of information and answered all our questions. An excellent introduction to the islands, its history and people. Brilliant way to start our holiday on the islands and also recommended other places to visit and walks to do. 5*

  3. Thomas Tørsleff

    Very knowledgeable guide, many beautiful sights.
    Highly recommended

  4. Casper Mygind

    Great day, great guide – worth all that driving around

  5. Jesper Olsen

    A fantastic tour around the islands – and a great guide, who told a lot of stories about the country, it’s history and the people.

  6. Thiago N

    Elsa Maria is a great guide (and a great driver), who clearly knows a lot about these fascinating islands. She kept the group going, so that we could really ‘see it all’, but also gave us time to savour each place, including to take photos. The packed lunch with traditional Faroese food was a particularly nice touch. Takk fyri! 🙂

  7. Ingrid Synnøve Ytreland

    We had a fantastic day on this “See it all” Faroe Islands Tour. We experienced breathtaking nature, tasted exciting local food and had the most amazing tour guide, Elsa Maria. We can absolutely recommend this day tour!

  8. Emilía Anna Ward

    This was a wonderful tour, not only because of the beautiful sites seen along the way – particularly Gjóv and Bøur -but also because of the very cheerful and friendly guide Elsa Maria. I really enjoyed learning more about the history and culture of the Faroe Islands from her, especially as an Icelander since we consider each other “cousins” due to our shared history and very similar languages. I was only in country for 3 days but I definitely felt like I got my money’s worth on this tour and saw nearly everything I wanted to see. If you’re looking for a fun, energetic guide and only have a limited amount of time on the Faroe Islands, I highly recommend this tour!

    Truly the best way to see the Faroes if you are there for the first time. Elsa Maria seems to know everybody and has a personal connection to all the places we´ve visited. We´ve even been invited to houses. Also she can tell you a lot of background information about the islands and their people. Plus you get all the stunning scenery. Given the fact that a hired car will set you back around 1.000 DKK a day this trip is really good value – you add the guide for the rest.

  10. Torsten

    The tour was awesome. Our guide Elsa Maria did a great job, all was very well organized and prepared. Telling us personal stories and other interesting things it was remarkable how much Elsa Maria loves the Faeroe Islands. The tour is the best choice to see in short time as much of spectacular spots as possible. An great advantage is that the tour includes the highlights of Vagar Island too. For me the tour also was a perfect appetizer for going around the Faeroer by my own.

  11. Lucia Yamashita

    Maria did give me the “See it all” tour! Not only did she drove me around the island, giving me valuable information about the country and showing me the best spots to take pictures, but she also gave me a real lesson on the Faroe culture! History, culture, traditions, tales, language and even some faroese food! All that in a single day! I definitely recommend this tour!

  12. Rafael Briquet

    Guide was kind, friendly and very knowledgeable about the country. Learnt a lot of interesting facts about the culture, history and geology of the islands during the drives between sites.
    In addition to the main attractions of the islands, you also get to see unique locations that you wouldn’t necessarily know about when travelling alone.
    I strongly recommend this tour for people who are staying for a week or less as it gives you a good picture of the whole country.

  13. Etsuzo Yamakado

    I have traveled around the world and it is one of the best. Especially the guide of Elsa Maria was wonderful. I learned something interesting about the history and culture of Faroe Island and the relationship between people and sheep. I was able to see a wonderful view that I had never seen before. Blessed with the weather, I was able to enjoy Winter Fellows Island. Recommended for all visitors to Faroe Island. This time I come to see Puffins.

  14. Nina Kjærvoll

    If you are on the Faroe Islands for a limited amount of time I would highly recommend this trip. Elsa Maria is an authentic, warm-hearted and knowledgeable guide who will make your day, either you travel alone or with company.

    She was solution oriented when I made a mistake booking the tour and picked me up at the airport upon arrival. We then spent the rest of the day exploring the magic scenery of the Faroe Islands while she was sharing history and personal experiences.

    As the weather conditions where somewhat challenging we ended up doing a more thorough sightseeing of Tórshavn, which was very helpful when I explored the city the next days. Elsa Maria also made sure I had a nice restaurant to have dinner at though all restaurants seemed fully booked due to Valentine’s Day.

    I would chose her as my tour guide any day! Highly recommended!

  15. Mario

    I had a very personalized and pleasant tour. Since I happened to be the only one in the tour that day and we happened to have some time over, Elsa Maria drove me to a select few locations not listed on the tour.
    The guide is pleasant to talk to, and really knows the locations, she also have me restaurant recommendations.

  16. ida christine brehmer

    We had an amazing trip and I can only recommend it to others. We got to see all the beautiful views and sights, and we had a very unique experience 🙂

  17. Jessica Goldman

    Elsa Maria was amazing! I can’t believe how much beauty we saw in one day. I am just so in awe of this place and she made the experience even more fulfilling. I’m hoping to come back this summer and would love to book with her again!

  18. Jacobsen

    Elsa Maria was a very kind Tour Guide for us. We were just two people that day and had an amazing trip. We were involved in the trip and were able to say where we want to stay and how long. I totally enjoyed the trip and would clearly recommend it! We also had some nice hikes in between and she answered every question patiently. The tour was in a comfortable car and the coffee breaks in between were perfect. Thank you!

  19. Alyssa Kilmurray

    We had such a wonderful day with Elsa, despite it starting out rainy and windy, she managed to show us everything we could have hoped to see. The weather even cleared out toward the end of the day. Elsa is full of fun facts and stories about the islands that kept us entertained as we drove from place to place, she even treated us to some local foods/drinks to give us a true taste of the Faroes.

    I cannot recommend a tour with Elsa enough, she is a great guide with a sense of humor, always willing to take a picture for you, and made sure the enjoyment of her customers was the top priority. Thank you Elsa!

  20. Isabeau T

    I had a great time on this guiding tour. Our guide, Elsa Maria, told us many stories, gave great information and took us to the must beautiful places. She also made us a traditional Faroerse picnic. An ultimate way to experience the culture.

    Thank you Elsa Maria for your enthusiastic way of guiding! I had a blast. Greetings from Belgium.

  21. Nadezhda Dobreva

    Elsa Maria was really a blast! Very kind, knowledgeable and with a great sense of humor. She definitely knows how to make the perfect day tour for you. Can’t recommend enough and we were really happy and thankful to have her as a guide!

  22. Stine

    We had a great day with Elsa Maria, who made us feel welcome. We saw a lot in just a day and Elsa Maria was very informative giving us a lot of knowledge about the Faroe Islands. If you don’t have that much time visiting the islands this tour is definitely worth taking.

  23. Lilibeth Martinussen

    I had difficulty renting a car, and after walking,hiking,bus tours on our own for 4 days, I decided to book this day tour for me and my 9 yr/old daughter. Our guide Elsa Maria was fantastic, she was very attentive, accomodating and very kind. Her knowledge of the island is really helpful and very informative. Plus the group tour is small, we we’re only 7 people in total, so it was great, and there is time to get to know the others. My daughter & I had a very fullfilling day, and without a doubt will definitely recommend this tour to everyone who’s having doubt because of the price. It is totally worth it! You will really see “all of Faroe Islands in a day”.

  24. Vibeke P

    Fantastic day in beautiful surroundings! An exceptional tour that takes you to all the sites. Our guide, Elsa Maria, was the best and I really recommend this tour. Her knowledge of the islands is both informative and interesting, she’s friendly and accomodating. You will not regret booking this tour.

  25. Piotr K.

    The tour is a must for every tourist coming to the Faroe Islands. Within a day one get a marvellous glimpse of Faroese landscapes, culture, history etc.
    The day spent with Elsa Maria was one of the best ever. She’s a unique guide I can recommend wholeheartedly. Be ready for some extras as well.

  26. Anais & Maxime e

    We spent a fantastic day around the Feroese Islands. We learnt a lot about the Islands’ culture. Elsa Maria is a great guide, kind and generous.
    We recommand this tour !
    Merci Elsa Maria !

    We had a great day on this tour. We only had a three days stopover on the Faroe islands on our way to Iceland, and for us, the tour was just pefect. Although the programme may look crammed at first sight, we never felt stressed and even had time for a break with freshly baked waffles at Tjørnuvík. Elsa Maria used the driving times to give us a lot of insights into Faroese living.

    You should note that the Eysturoyartunnilin is used now on one way, so the tour works nicely as a round trip with some detours. This had three advantages for us. First, it allowed for more time at the different sites as the way through the tunnel is much quicker. Second, we got an impression of Eastern Eysturoy as well. And thirdly and most importantly, we saw Eysturoyartunnilin, which really is an attraction in its own with the undersea roundabout and the art installation.

    We highly recommend taking this tour!

  28. Victoria Johnson

    Had a great trip with our tour guide – the see-it-all day tour went to a lot of smaller places not easily accessible by public transport. Very informative, helpful and friendly. Highly recommended!

  29. Marcus Uzubalis

    The Faroe Islands have been on my bucket list for years and, to make the most of my time in this beautiful part of the world, I booked a full-day tour with Elsa Maria for the day after I arrived to enable me to see the best of some of the larger islands. I’m glad I did – even before I landed, Elsa Maria was in contact with me to ensure that everything went smoothly, and even contacted me the day before the tour as she was worried about the weather and, as I was the only person on the tour, wanted to ensure that I got the most out of my day.

    From the moment I met Elsa Maria, I knew I was in good hands. Her knowledge, and obvious love, of the Islands is obvious. She knows the most stunningly beautiful locations (not an easy task given they are all breathtakingly beautiful), was full of interesting anecdotes to help bring the Islands and its people to life, and was more than happy to stop for (multiple) ad-hoc photo stops. And I even got to experience a typical home-made Faroese lunch consisting of whale, cured sheep and salmon!

    Thanks to Elsa Maria, I saw some of the best of the Islands (with the Mulafossur Waterfall on Vagar Island cascading spectacularly into the ocean being a particular highlight), and learned more about what makes the Islands so very special. Five stars – I would recommend the Faroe Islands, and this tour, to everyone!

  30. D.A. de Franceschi

    I booked this tour offered by Guide to Faroe Islands.

    From the very first moment I was picked up at the hotel Elsa Maria won me over with her cordial and friendly manner which did not change during the entire day. She was tireless in showing us the islands, telling us the stories and legends of each spot, answering patiently the many questions we had about the islands, the history and the present day. She clearly enjoys guiding the tourists and showing this wonderful, remote and very special corner of the planet. Her love for the islands, her positive attitude to life in general, the sparkle in her eyes, is contagious and her straightforward manner passed on our small and random group.

    She prepared the lunch box for us giving us the opportunity to taste the Faroese food: the whale blubber with dried whale meat, and the famous fermented meat, in authentic setting.
    Upon returning home, I have found in my email the photographs she took along the way and the 3D itinerary of the trip for a long lasting memory.

    I am thankful for it all. I cannot recommend more Else Maria.

  31. Laura Fløytrup

    My trip was super good. First of all, I am really grateful that the trip was carried out as I was the only traveller.

    The tour guide was great at telling stories and answering my many questions. I usually travel around on my own, without a guide, but this tour gives you a completely different insight into the country. That was super nice! We got to see a lot in a short time. I would definitely recommend the trip to others.

  32. Margaret Mehl

    The ‘See It All’ day tour with Elsa Maria was among the highlights of my 10-day holiday in the Faroe Islands. Having spent a week travelling alone and relying on public transport, it was wonderful to be driven around in a car by someone who really knows the islands, and getting an overall impression of many places in one day. Elsa Maria is a very knowledgeable and dedicated guide and drew our attention to sights we might not have appreciated as much otherwise. I recommend ordering the lunch, which was excellent. A great day all round! And receiving a link to Elsa’s great photos and a little video as a memento was a real bonus, as it reminded me where exactly we had been. Many thanks for superb tour!

  33. Priscilla Quartey

    Literally the best guided tour I have been on. Elsa the guide was amazing! She told incredible stories about the island and the view was out of this world. It was great to get to try the Local food as well.

    Nice meeting you Elsa and thanks for an amazing day 🤩

  34. Liudmila

    I booked this tour because it is the only one covering all the places I wanted to visit without renting a car. Elsa Maria is wonderful! Even if the weather was not the best I felt myself comfortable! Absolutely recommended!

  35. Bert Peirsman

    A wonderful guide. Very good!

    We enjoyed the trip very much !!
