Unspoiled, traditional and full of good history

Enjoy the beautiful nature, rich birdlife and history on this whole day guided tour to Sandoy and Kirkjubøur. Visit all the old sites that date back to the viking era and even some sea-mines from second world war.

The drive from the capital to the ferry is approx. 20 minutes long and the ferry sailtime is approx. 30 minutes.

On Sandoy we will visit the villages of Skopun, Sandur, Skálavík, Húsavík, Dalur and Skarvanes.

Sandur is the main village on the island and is the only place in the Faroes where you can see real sand dunes. The Church in Sandur is worth a visit and here you will be told the history of religion in the Faroes.

Skálavík is also an old village and is home to one variant of the Seal Woman legend. Here there is the quaint old-style café Á Mølini.

Húsavík is one of the original farming villages on the island and was home to the infamous “Húsfrúgvin í Húsavík”, without doubt the richest woman in all Faroese history. Here there are the ruins of her old farm, some old storage houses and a few driftmines from the second World War.

The village of Dalur spots some amazing scenery and a quaint little pebble beach.

Skarvanes was a deserted village up until a decade ago and sports a great view of Skúvoy, Stóra Dímun and Suðuroy.

When returning from Sandoy we will visit the most history-rich village in the Faroe Islands, Kirkjubøur.

Here the 17’th generation of the family Patursson lives in the oldest wodden house in the Country (And maybe Europe!), a house which dates back to the viking era. The old Skt. Ólav Church is the oldest church on the islands that is still in use and its newer cousin, the Skt. Magnus Cathedral ruins, stand oppulently close by. Here there are local stories of Kings, Bishops, Priests, Farmers, Civil War and Rescues to be heard.

From here we will return you to Tórshavn and your hotel.

This tour includes: Ferry Tickets, Entrance Fees, Lunch and Beverages.

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.
