Hvíthamar Travel Guide

By Verified Expert

Hvíthamar is a vantage point above the village Funningur in the Faroe Islands. The popular attraction is a short uphill walk away from Gjáarskarð mountain pass. You will have a great view of the Funningsfjørður fjord and the surrounding mountains when standing on Hvíthamar. There is also a stunning view to the north towards the island Kalsoy.

Behind the headland on the opposite end of the fjord lies the village Elduvík. You will find Hvíthamar on the island Eysturoy between the two villages Funningur and Gjógv. On days with clear skies, you will see the summit on the highest mountain Slættaratindur from the top of Hvíthamar.
