"Vælkomin"

it's all about the people

Are you in doubt about what you want to experience on the islands? Why not take a little of everything.

The Faroe Islands is a place where few people have been. The far-flung rocky archipelago is the most stunning piece of nature that you will ever see far away from well-travelled spots. The unfathomable beauty of the Faroe Islands is still a well kept secret. With this in mind, we have created some tour packages for you to experiance as much as possible.

Summer season is from June to August

Winter season is from September to May

    From here we will drive to Sandavágur village where we will have the chance to see the Trøllkonufingur (Witch’s Finger) free standing cliff and visit the local Church. Here you will hear about religion and old customs on the islands.

    From Sandavágur we will drive back to the Leitisvatn lake and say Hello to the Nykur statue and hear the legend of this Fairy Tale creature.

    Then we will visit the War Museum where objects and other historical memorabilia from the Second World War and the British occupation of the Faroes is explained.

    From here we will pick up the hikers and return to Tórshavn.

    1.995,00 DKK

    Fantastically beautiful settlements in unreal surroundings!

    Enjoy the heart of the Faroe Islands in a comfortable coach while a local guide tells you the stories about the surroundings.

    See places like Saksun, Tjørnuvík, Gjógv, Risin & Kellingin and Fossá in one day. This is a day you will never forget.

    After driving over the old Mountain Road out of Tórshavn and a stop for coffee, we will come to the unique settlement of Saksun. This village is situated at the base of a tiny inlet and is flanked by the lush green mountains of Koppenni and Melin. You will see the seawater lagoon, the beautiful old church and visit the 16th century farm Dúvugarðar with its stone walls and turf roofs. Here you will be told of the evolution of the islands and the life here over the centuries.

    Next we will head to Tjørnuvík. The route will take us through the valley from Saksun with ever-changing scenery along the Dalsá river with many small waterfalls. Before we reach Tjørnuvík we will stop by Fossá Waterfall. This is the tallest waterfall in the Faroe Islands.
