    How to spend 3 days in the Faroes

    How to make the most out of three days in the Faroe Islands

    1st Day:

    Tour the main islands Streymoy and Eyturoy to enjoy the beguiling Faroese landscape. Don't miss the natural harbour in Gjógv or the isolated silty bay in Saksun and make sure you pay a visit to the fossilized giants Risin and Kellingin. 

     

    Gjógv Faroe Islands

    2nd Day:

    Drive from the capital Tórshavn to the charming island of Vágar. Head along the shores of Lake Leitisvatn towards the village Gásadalur in its splendid isolation. On your way back make sure to catch a boat tour to the magnificent bird cliffs near Vestmanna.

    3rd Day:

    We recommend a visit to the ancient heart of Faroese culture Kirkjuböur with the remains of the Magnus Cathedral and the oldest church still in use in the Faroes St. Olav's Church. Also make time for a stroll in the old Tórshavn where you will find the oldest parliament in the world.

    Kirkjuböur Faroe Islands

     

    1st day

    Tour the main islands Streymoy and Eysturoy to enjoy historical sites and the beguiling Faroese landscape. On the biggest island in the archipelago, Streymoy, we recommend a visit to the ancient heart of Faroese culture Kirkjubøur. It is home to the remains of the Magnus Cathedral and the oldest church still in use in the Faroes St. Olav's Church. Also, make time for a stroll in old Tórshavn where you will find the oldest parliament in the world. 
     

    Kirkjubøur

     

    For more information on how to spend your time in the capital go to: visittorshavn.fo 

     

    On your drive to Eysturoy, the second largest island in the Faroes, you will cross the bridge connecting Streymoy and Eysturoy. Then continue North to the imposing summits of Slættaratindur (882 meters) and Gráfelli (857 meters), the tallest mountains in the archipelago, located between the villages of Eiði and Gjógv.  
     

    Gjógv

     

    Gjógv nestles on Eysturoy’s northeastern tip and is best known for its picturesque scenery dotted with multi-colored old house built around its vital natural harbor, which lies protected in the gorge that has given the village its name –  gjógv means gorge in Faroese. It is a fitting name; the harbor carved by the sea was the village’s lifeline before the arrival of modern roads.

     

    For more information on the sights in Eysturoy go to: visiteysturoy.fo

     

    2nd day

    Take a 15-minut drive from the capital Tórshavn to the Gamlarætt harbor where you can catch the ferry to Sandoy island (the crossing takes about 30 minutes). 
     

    Sandoy is known for its fertile agricultural land, this is why the fields are always bustling with activity in summer when hay is made and stored in silos, and the potato fields are lush and green. 

     

    Sandoy

     

    Around 1,500 people live on Sandoy in six villages; most of the inhabitants earn their living from the fishing industry. Many of the villages are said to have been inhabited since Viking times. Archeological excavations in the village of Sandur have demonstrated that it is indeed one of the oldest in the Faroe Islands. 
     

    For inspiration for your Sandoy trip go to: visitsandoy.fo

     

    3rd day

    We recommend a visit to the North. The ‘Northern Isles’ is a term used to describe the six islands of Fugloy, Svínoy, Viðoy, Borðoy, Kunoy and Kalsoy, which make up the northeastern corner of the Faroe Islands.
     

     

    These six islands are very different, each has its own distinctive character. Together they make up a unit around the second largest town in the Faroes, Klaksvík. Here you will find dramatic landscapes, idyllic villages and people who live in close connection with the beautiful, but treacherous ocean.
