Information about Skálafjørður

By Verified Expert

This is the longest fjord in the Faroe Islands. You will find several small settlements and villages tucked along the Skálafjørður fjord.

At the end of the fjord towards the neighbouring Streymoy island, you will find the Eysturoyartunnilin tunnel, which is a 11,2km long undersea road network that connects Eysturoy island to Streymoy island.

You can access the Eysturoyartunnilin tunnel from both Runavík on eastside of the Skálafjørður fjord and Strendur on the fjord’s west side, as there is an undersea roundabout in the tunnel. The tunnel cuts down travel from Skálafjørður to the capital Tórshavn with one hour.
