Explore the Faroe Islands in 3 days

We have put together a suggestion on how to spend your 3 days in the Faroe Islands.

It will give you an insight to culture and city life in the charming capital Tórshavn as well as great nature experiences.

Please see our recommendation below. 

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.

Tip: Look out for Summartónar, Faroe Islands Festival of Classical and Contemporary Music. The festival arranges a wealth of concerts around the country and several are free!

Vestmanna Seacliffs

The Vestmanna Cliffs and Sea Stacks are one of the major tourist attractions in the Faroe Islands. We recommend a boat trip to the Vestmanna Seacliffs where you get the chance to come up close to bird life, majestic grottos and imposing cliffs. Book your boat trip on puffin.fo.

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. Among the characteristic grass-thatched houses lies Gásadalsgarður, now a guesthouse with a café. Here you can take in the village idyll and savour homemade Faroese specialities. 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.
