If you prefer to stay from Friday to Sunday on your way back to Denmark, that is also possible.

   

If you are interested in transportation to Iceland only it is possible to take your motorcycle free of charge to Iceland or SAVE up to € 342 if you are traveling with your own camper or big vehicle, the only condition is that you have a 2½ night stop-over in the Faroes on the return to Hirtshals, departure from the Faroes Sunday evening. The offers are valid in the period 13.06-20.08.2017.

    Your options for a stop-over in the Faroe Islands

     

    In the summer season:

    • Outbound: When departing from Denmark Saturday, you get a 3-day stop-over in the Faroe Islands - from Sunday evening (at 22:30) to Wednesday evening (at 18:00).

    If you need a hotel in the Faroe Islands, we would recommend the first night in Hotel Føroyar in Tórshavn, the second night in Hotel Skálavík on the island Sandoy and the third night in Hotel Klaksvík up in the North. This way you can experience most of the Faroe Islands in 3 days. We can assist you with this booking.

    For this stay we would recommend the first night in Hotel Føroyar in Tórshavn and the second night in Hotel Skálavík on the island Sandoy. 

     

     

    In the low- and mid season:

    • Outbound: When departing from Denmark Saturday, you get approx. 9 hours in the Faroe Islands (Mon 05:00-14:00)

    Besides these options you can of course always take a week's stay in the green Faroe Islands, until Norröna picks you up again and sails you home. 

     

    For a one week stop we can offer you the most unique Island hopping in the Faroe Islands. You start your trip in the Faroe Islands with 3 nights in the 4* Hotel Føroyar in the capital Tórshavn.

    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.

    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/en/ 

     

     

    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). 
     

    SandoySandoy 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. 

     

    Around 1,500 people live on Sandoy in seven 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/UK/ 

     

     

    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.

     

    For all you need to plan your trip up North go to: www.visitnordoy.fo/UK/

     

    Below you will find our best offers at the moment to Iceland with stopover in the Faroe Islands.
