Information about Kunoy

By Verified Expert

​Kunoy is one of the Northern Islands. The island is long and narrow. Due to its steep mountains with kilometres of rock face, there are only two villages on the island: Kunoy and Haraldssund.

There is road connection all the way from Tórshavn to this island. When getting to Kunoy from the capital, you drive through tunnels, a bridge, an undersea tunnel and finally crossing an embankment to reach Haraldssund on the island Kunoy. From Haraldssund there is a tunnel that leads to the village Kunoy. The tunnel through the mountain has one lane only and is very narrow.

The name of the highest peak is Kúvingafjall (830 m). Kunoy translates directly to Woman island.
