Highlights in the Faroe Islands

We have put together suggestions for nature experiences for your trip. Find inspiration for your journey below. 

Please note that opening hours outside the tourist season may vary. Please check opening hours well in advance before heading out on nature experiences.

Tórshavn

With only around 20,000 inhabitants, Tórshavn is not just one of the world’s smallest capitals, but also one of the most charming ones with an exciting mix of old and new. Explore the city on foot and see old protected buildings side-by-side with modern architectural design. We especially recommend a stroll around the little Tinganes promontory, which is the seat of government, and to the adjacent traditional neighbourhood Reyn with its quaint idyll. The National Gallery of the Faroe Islands as well as the Nordic House also merit a visit. In addition, the Faroe Islands offer exciting shopping opportunities. Local design wares can be found for example at Østrøm and Guðrun & Guðrun. You can also savour Nordic cuisine at several of the little capital’s exciting and enticing restaurants.

Kirkjubøur

The historic village Kirkjubøur is a 10-minute drive from Tórshavn. Kirkjubøur was the bishop’s seat and thus the spiritual and cultural hub of the Faroe Islands. St. Olav’s Church (11th century), Magnus Cathedral (12th century) and the Kirkjubøargarður farm, which is now home to the 17th generation of the Patursson family, are all monuments that bear witness to a long history. Why not take a gentle hike from Tórshavn to Kirkjubøur along the old path? The trip is 7-km-long and relatively easy. The views are superb.

Saksun & Tjørnuvík

Picturesque Saksun is a popular excursion in northwestern Streymoy. At low tide you can walk the 3 km to the Atlantic shore. The old farm Dúvugarðar dates from the 17th century and is open during the summer as a museum and café. A little further north in Streymoy you will find Tjørnuvík overlooking the bay with its vistas of the famous sea stacks The Giant and The Hag. We recommend a photo stop on the way to or from Tjørnuvík at the stunning waterfall Fossá.

Gjógv

Charming Gjógv is on the north coast of Eysturoy. The village is known for its natural harbour in a ravine formed by the sea. It was the village’s main artery until the road came in 1960.

Gjógv is a Faroese word for ravine. The old shop from 1883 serves as both a shop and café in summer. In addition, the Guesthouse Gjáargarður has a restaurant. There are excellent hiking opportunities in the area. Near Gjógv you will find the tallest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur. Hike up the 880-m-tall mountain, put up your feet and enjoy the magnificent panorama.

Trælanípan & Gásadalur

Trælanípa is among the most photographed locations in the Faroe Islands. From the edge of this premonitory you will stare down a 142 m vertical drop into the sea, and at the same time you see lake Sørvágsvatn, the largest lake in the Faroe Islands. From this vantage point you can also marvel at the southern tip of Streymoy as well as Hestur, Koltur, Sandoy, Skúvoy and Suðuroy. To the other side you can take in the bird cliffs Sørvágsbjørg, Mykines and Mykineshólmur. 

In the village Gásadalur you will find the most famous waterfall in the Faroe Islands, Múlafossur, which tumbles straight into the Atlantic Ocean. On the way to and from Gásadalur you will pass the village Sandavágur, where the cozy café Fiskastykkið is located. Here you can have both lunch or coffee and cake.

Klaksvík

Klaksvík is the second largest town in the Faroe Islands. It is nestled in a northfacing bay, which makes a superb harbour. The city is guarded by towering mountains, including Klakkur, which the town is named after.

We recommend a hike (1,5 h) to Klakkur. In fair weather you will have magnificent views. Klaksvík also offers culture, shopping in lovely little boutiques, as well as charming cafés.
