The Faroe Islands offer unique nature, exciting history and a rich culture. There are birds, sheep, and friendly people. There is a captivating silence, which is only broken by cascading waterfalls and eardeafining surf. Take your senses with you on this self guided road trip.

Day 1: Arrival with Atlantic Airways.
Pick up your rental car at the airport. Experience the island of Vágoy on your own. We recommend a visit to the small village of Gásadalur. From here you can walk out on marked nature trails and enjoy the impressive view over Tindhólmur, don’t miss the beautiful waterfall that runs in to the ocean.
Spend the night in Vágoy.

Day 2: We recommend on your way north to go on a two hour boat trip to Vestmanna birdcliffs*, where the boat takes you in between the cliffs and in to grottoes, and also visit the unique Saga Museum. Continue on to the village of Tjørnuvík, that is surrounded by steep mountains. Here you can see the impressive rock formations the Giant and the Witch. Cross the bridge, that connects the islands of Eysturoy and Streymoy, and continue to the village of Eiði. Here more beautiful surroundings and nature will await you and view of the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur, 882 meters.
Spend the night in Eysturoy.
*Boat trip is not included.

Day 3: Enjoy the day at the village of Gjógv, which is known for its unique natural harbour.
Here it is possible to hike on your own and enjoy the view of the birdcliffs and the beautiful valley Ambadalur. Hiking maps are available in Hotel Gjáargarður in Gjógv.
Spend the night in Eysturoy.

Day 4: From Leirvík you drive through the sub-sea tunnel to the town of Klaksvík. The tunnel is decorated with lights by the famous Faroese artist Tróndur Patursson. From Klaksvík it is possible to explore the other Northern Islands, each offering dramatic landscapes. On the island of Viðoy lies the most northern village in the Faroe Islands, Viðareiði, which definately is worth a visit. Enjoy a cup of coffee or a slice of bread at the local restaurant.
Spend the night in the Northern Islands.

DAY 5: We suggest that you visit the island of Kunoy in the morning. From the tiny village of Kunoy is a beautiful view of the island of Kalsoy. Above the village is a small cosy park. A local legend tells that up on a high mountain in Kunoy lies a plank from Noah’s ark. Clams and sea shells grow on it. People, who have gotten lost in the fog have seen the plank, but no one who has gone looking for it has ever found it. Back on Eysturoy you will drive towards the village of Søldarfjørður, where you visit a private home with an impressive garden. Here coffee and cake will be served.
Spend the night in Tórshavn.

DAY 6: Visit the beautiful and green island of Sandoy, also called the Saga-island. The island is, compared to the other islands, characterized by mostly flat terrain. The island has a wealth of history and wonderful nature. Take the ferry from the harbour Gamlarætt to the village of Skopun. Do not miss the villages of Dalur and Húsavík which lie in beautiful surroundings. In
the village of Skálavík it is possible to buy food and beverages in the new vacation centre.
Spend the night in Tórshavn.

DAY 7: Enjoy the day in Tórshavn on your own, but don’t forget to visit the village of Kirkjubøur which is the Faroe Islands’ historical and cultural centre. The picturesque old farm is home to a family who for 17 generations have run the farmstead and ecclesiastic site. See the unfinished Magnus Cathedral and the small medieval church of St.Olav.
