The breathtaking ride

Guided tour all around the Island of Vágar in a comfortable coach.

You will be picked up right at your hotel or other designated area in Tórshavn. From there you can sit down and relax while the local tour guide happily shares knowledge about the beautiful sights you see along the journey.

On the tour we will stop to see sights such as Leitisvatn, Nykurin statue, Bøur, Tindhólmur, Drangarnir and the most popular waterfall of them all, Múlafossur.

The tour starts with a 45 minute drive to Sørvágur where we will enjoy a short coffee break.

From there we will drive to the village Bøur, often reffered to as the village in the Faroes with the best view. We will take a stroll through the picturesque village and hear some history. From Bøur you will see the free-standing rocks named “Dranganir” and the amazing islet of Tindhólmur.

After Bøur we will drive through the only tunnel on the island to the distant and previously very isolated village of Gásadalur. Here we will enjoy a spot of lunch and take a walk to the most photographed waterfall in the Faroes, Múlafossur.

From Gásadalur we will drive past Leitisvatn, the largest fresh-water lake on the islands. Here we will drop off those who have opted for the optional extra hike to the “Lake above the Ocean”.

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.

This tour includes: Lunch, beverages, entrance fees to Sandavágur Church and the War Museum.

OPTIONAL EXTRA:  The Trælanípan or the “Lake above the ocean” hike is available as an optional extra. NOTE that if you choose this option, you will not see the Witch’s Finger, the Church in Sandavágur or the War Museum. Difficulty is easy to medium/hard.

    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.
