By Verified Expert

The Tórshavn Bus Terminal is situated at the harbour in Tórshavn. The national bus and ferry service, Strandfaraskip Landsins, operates a well run bus service that runs between Tórshavn and the towns and villages and if you want to take a bus out of town you will find it at the Tórshavn Bus Terminal.

You will want to look for the blue buses (The Tórshavn City buses are red). It is easy as a pie to get to the different corners of the Faroe Islands from Farstøðin as the bus terminal is known by the Faroe Islanders.

Strandfaraskip Landsins offers 4 day and 7 day Travel Passes which allow you to travel on all buses and ferries (Mykines not included) throughout the Faroe Islands. Most day tours starting from Tórshavn use the bus terminal as a pick up location.

At the Tórshavn Bus Terminal you can buy snack and drinks for the journey as well as getting advice on what bus routes to take to get you where you are going. The passenger ferry to the Faroe Islands M/S Norröna enters the port of Tórshavn and travellers will step into the bus terminal when they step out of the ferry. If you take a public bus from Vágar Airport (FAE) to Tórshavn, the bus will terminate at the harbour in Tórshavn at Farstøðin. The bus terminal is a 5 minutes walk from the main square Vaglið in the capital, Tórshavn. The old grass roofed government buildings Tinganes in the oldest district in the city also lies a 5 minutes walk from the Tórshavn bus terminal.
