Useful information

See some of the most untouched settlements in the Faroe Islands. This day tour departs  from the capital Tórshavn from where you will head north to amazing sights.

In the remote village Tjørnuvík you will find several charming turf-roofed houses and you will have a great with towards Risin og Kellingin - the Giant & his Wife. Tjørnuvík is a great village to visit during the summer as well as in the winter. You can see the local people living their traditional farming life in the summer and autumn and in the wintertime the hillsides are often covered in snow and the waves are crashing against the sandy beach.

On this tour you will also visit the northernmost village in the Faroe Islands with stunning natural surroundings. The locals in Viðareiði love their village and you might do as well when you see Viðareiði with your own eyes. The population in Viðareiðis is about 600 inhabitants. They have lived a traditional, unobtrusive, and isolated life for hundreds of years. Now the village is connected to the mainland with tunnels and roads. This is a must-see village in the Faroe Islands.

Klaksvík is the second largest town in the Faroe Islands and is very much influenced by the fishing culture. You will have a look at Klaksvík on this tour. From Klaksvík, you will have a great view towards the soaring Kunoyarnakki mountain on the nearby island Kunoy. Kunoyarnakki looks like a natural pyramide when you look at it from the town Klaksvík.

You will be picked up at your hotel in Tórshavn or at the Tórshavn Bus Terminal (Eystara Bryggja). At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off in Tórshavn again.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience some of the best sights in the Faroe Islands. Check availability by choosing a date.

    I had a really nice and personal experience, our guide Samson is really knowledgeable about the stories and legends of the different places we visited, and gave us really nice conversation during the trip.

    The places we visited were stunningly beautiful, so pray for good weather and you’ll get amazing pictures.

    Our driver Ann also knew how to drive in the Faroese terrain and no one got car sickness.

    I really enjoyed this tour.

    It is amazing experience. When I showed up at the bus terminal that morning, I was surprised to find that I was the only guy taking that tour on that day. Mr Ole very warmly welcomed me. He then professionally guided me the whole day. I believe the whole day activity is longer than the advertised, not to mention the extra stops that has been made in order to let me see more of the northern part of Faroe Islands. Never a boring day!! Given the chance, I will book from this agency again and again. You have my true salute.
