The Faroe Islands is an amazing destination. Traditions, fantastic landscapes and scenery, stories, customs, events and experiences are found all year round, in this islolated, unique island group. Your tour arrangements include return flights, accommodation and airport transfers.

Day 1 Friday Copenhagen - Torshavn
Make your own way to Copenhagen* airport for your flight to the Faroe Islands. On arrival at Vágar Airport,  transfer to your accommodation in Tórshavn. 3 nights in Torshavn.

Day 2  Saturday Tórshavn: Day at Leisure
Day at leisure - explore the old part of Tórshavn, Tinganes & Reyn, with narrow alleys, and charming houses with grass roofs, then relax one of the many cafes. In the afternoon, perhaps visit Østrom, down by the end of the harbour, where you can see and buy contemporary Faroese art and fine craft. Back on the main street, have a closer look at the exquisite Faroese designed woollen wares and the latest fashions, at some of the great boutiques including "Sirri"  and "Guðrun and Guðrun".  Wander past the cosy old bookstore and tourist office, and visit the art museum close to the park, where the permanent collection has a wide variety of Faroese art, showing how nature and landscape have been the dominant motifs throughout Faroese art history. You can also see the Nordic House, a Scandinavian culture centre, or the Art Museum and Gallery, with a wide range of more contemporary Faroese art.  

In summer, perhaps take an optional  trip to the Vestmanna Bird Cliffs and Kvivik. (Saturdays 29 May to 01 September 12:30-17:30). Pick-up from Tórshavn hotels or the central bus terminal then travel by bus via the mountain road to the village of Vestmanna, where the boat awaits. Sail through narrow sounds, into deep grottoes carved by the surf through ages, and close to the over 1500 feet high-rise cliffs. On the return to Tórshavn there is a stop at the Viking settlement in the village of Kvívík.

Day 3 Sunday Tórshavn: Day at Leisure 
More time to explore. In summer, you can take one of great optional excursions offered today which include:

Grotto Concert and Sightseeing at Sea: (Sundays June – August 13:00-18:00hrs) Departs from Tórshavn harbour. Onboard the Norðlýsið schooner, sail to one of two islands - Hestur or Nólsoy. Sail by smaller boat into a grotto or sea cave, where a concert is held in a grotto.   No concert is ever the same because of nature's participation- it may be so quiet that you can hear the birds joining in, or the beating of waves inside the caves may provide a completely different experience and sound. Please note the trip requires a certain degree of mobility as you transfer from the schooner to the smaller vessel. It is not possible to buy food and beverages on board, but you may bring these. If less than 10 passengers are booked you may for safety reasons sail on a smaller vessel.

Saga island of Sandoy and Kirkjubøur  (Sundays 29 May - 01 September 08:30-18:00). Pick-up from Tórshavn hotels or bus terminal. Sandoy is one of the most unspoiled islands where you can still experience the traditional Faroese lifestyle. Your driver/guide will take you from Tórshavn over the mountain, to the ferry harbour at Gamlarætt, where you board the ferry to Sandoy. Once on board, there are wonderful views of the islands of Hestur and Koltur. Your guide will entertain you with sagas from the island, and other interesting facts about Faroese life, as well as some captivating stories.  On Sandoy, visit the church, enjoy some fantastic scenic views, explore small villages and the cultural centre of Kirkjubour. Then return to Tórshavn by ferry and car.Experience a church visit, fantastic scenic views, and small villages. Also visit the cultural area of Kirkjubøur. Enjoy a packed lunch on route.

In winter, from September - April, enjoy a guided sightseeing tour with your local driver/guide.  Seeing the Faroe Islands in winter's austere light and colour is a truly astonishing experience. The exact driving itinerary is dependant on wind and weather, so just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenic views, while talking with your driver who will entertain you with information about the Faroe Islands and other good stories.
