Fantastically beautiful settlements in unreal surroundings with a private driver/guide
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.
Tjørnuvík is the northernmost settlement on Streymoy island. The village is situated in an isolated inlet with towering mountains and a beautiful black sand beach. From the beach there is a fantastic view of the sea stacks Risin & Kellingin (The Giant and his Hag).
When we get to Eysturoy island we will experience the view from the road beneath Slættaratindur, the highest mountain in the Faroe islands. From there you will see the zigzagging road we will be driving down to Funningur. Our last village visit will be the peaceful and picturesque Gjógv on the northernmost tip of Eysturoy island. The village is named after its amazing 200-metre gorge that runs out from the village.

OPTIONAL EXTRA: You can add a hike to Slættaratindur to this day tour. If you do so you will not experience Gjógv and the village of Funningur but instead reach the highest summit in the Faroe Islands. Hiking difficulty Hard.
