This is the second largest city in the Faroe Islands. Klaksvík is located on Borðoy island and is very much anchored in its fishing culture. You can enjoy a great view of Kunoyarnakki from Klaksvík. The nature attraction Klakkur is perched on the mountain ridge above Klaksvík.

Klaksvík is the ferry hub for the isolated islands in the northern part of the Faroe Islands. The ferry SAM sails between Klaksvík and Syðradalur on Kalsoy island. The ferry RITAN sails between Klaksvík and the islands Svínoy and Fugloy.

The Norðoyartunnilin sub-sea tunnel connects Borðoy island to the island Eysturoy. When you drive out of the tunnel from Eysturoy to Borðoy, you will be in Klaksvík. You will also pass Klaksvík when heading to the islands Kunoy and Viðoy.

There is a hospital in Klaksvík as well as a post office, pharmacy, and other services. There are also a couple of cafés in the town and restaurants too.
