Day 1: Arrival in Faroe Islands and exploration of Vágar Region

faroe islands landscapeYour Faroe Islands tour will begin by landing in Vágar airport, early in the afternoon. Your driver will pick you up upon your arrival and together you will embark on your first adventure: the Vestmanna boat cliff tour. The magnificent boat trips to the Vestmannabjørgini cliffs and grottoes are a popular excursion in the Faroe Islands. On the boat you will experience deep grottoes, narrow straits and high cliffs soaring up from the ocean. These cliffs provide safe nesting places during summer for thousands of seabirds such as puffins, razorbills, guillemots and fulmars. There is no sight as fantastic as that of the bird cliffs seen from the sea.

In the afternoon you will be driven towards the capital city, Tórshavn. We highly recommend a walk in the Old Town home to dozens of small, black-tarred wooden houses with white-framed windows and grass roofs. People still call these 14th century houses their homes today. Stroll along charming narrow winding lanes and experience a wonderful mixture of old and new. Dine in one of the many gourmet restaurants downtown and spend the night in the Capital city.

Highlights of the day: Flight from Reykjavik/Keflavík to Vágar airport, Explore Vágar region with Gásadalur, Vestmanna bird cliffs, Tórshavn and more

Day 2: Sandoy & Kirkjubøur

SandoyAfter breakfast, your driver will show you the beautiful area of Kirkjubøur, the southernmost village of the Streymoy region. This is an absolute valuable addition to your itinerary. Kirkjubøur is one of the most significant historical sites in the Faroe Islands. Here you can visit the 900-year-old farmhouse/museum, the present Parish church, Ólavskirkja, and the medieval Magnus Cathedral, the effective seat of power over several centuries. Included in this day is also a ferry-ride to the island of Sandoy.

The ferry takes approximately 30-minutes. The humbling nature of the region is unique and unbeatable. This is the flattest of the islands and boasts of nice, sandy beaches near the villages Sandur and Husavik. Drive through the landscapes on the uninhabited Soltuvik Cove where the sights are breathtaking and timeless. Its isolation, peace and rough nature are the main appeals of this beautiful island. Evening return to Tórshavn for dinner and overnight.

Highlights of the day: Kirkjubøur, Tórshavn, scenic route, fjords, Sandoy island and more

Day 3: Tórshavn & Mount Sornfelli

Tórshavn Faroe IslandsAfter breakfast, your guide will show you around the town of Tórshavn on a private city tour. Included are the picturesque harbour, the old town with its beautiful red houses, grass-roofed cottages, the churches. You will stroll along charming narrow winding lanes and passageways and experience a wonderful mixture of old and new. During summer, along the harbour, front steel tables display freshly caught fish and birds for purchase. Alongside the old wooden boats, you will find internationally acclaimed Faroese design labels. It definitely makes a difference to have an experienced guide sharing the history of this unique town.

Your afternoon will be free for your own exploration. In the evening, you will be driven to the Mount Sornfelli,  a mountain plateau on the island of Streymoy in the Faroe Islands about 12 km from the capital Tórshavn. From here the views are breathtaking.

Day 4: Northern Part & Eysturoy

Gjogv Faroe IslandsAfter breakfast, you will be driven towards the northern part of Faroe Islands. Highlights of this day are the area of Eysturoy with the spectacular Gjógv village. Eysturoy is the second largest Faroese island and features numerous sights, excursions and countless wow-locations. It is also home to the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands: Mt. Slættaratindur.

In the afternoon you will visit Gjógv, one of the most photographed and popular sights in Faroe Islands.  Gjógv is the most northern village on the island of Eysturoy, named after a 200-meter long sea-filled gorge that runs from the village into the ocean. With less than 50 inhabitants, all living in old timber-walled and turf-roofed cottages, Gjógv has an abundance of charm. Not far from Gjógv stands the famous „Risin and Kellingin“ (The Giant and the Witch) two legendary sea stacks on the northern coast of Eysturoy whose interesting story connects Iceland with the Faroe Islands. In the evening you will be returned to Tórshavn for your last night in the archipelago.
