The Faroe Islands offer unique nature, exciting history and a rich culture. There are amazing views, stunning landscapes, birds, and warm, friendly people. There is a captivating silence, which is only broken by cascading waterfalls and tumultous surf. Take your senses with you on this self guided road trip.

Day 1 Copenhagen* - Vagar, Faroe Islands
Make your own way to Copenhagen* airport for your flight to the Faroe Islands. On arrival at Vágar Airport pick up your rental car and explore the island of Vágar on your own. We recommend a visit to the small village of Gásadalur. From here you can walk out on marked nature trails and enjoy the impressive view over Tindhólmur. Also don’t miss the beautiful waterfall that runs in to the ocean. Spend the night on Vágar.

Day 2 Vágar - Eysturoy: Vestmanna Bird Cliffs, Saga Museum, Giant & The Witch
Today you might like to visit the unique Saga Museum, or if travelling between June and August make your way north and take an optional two hour boat trip to the Vestmanna bird cliffs, where the boat takes you in between the cliffs and into sea caves and grottoes. Continue on to the village of Tjørnuvík, surrounded by steep mountains. Here you can see the impressive rock formations the Giant and the Witch. Cross the bridge that connects the islands of Eysturoy and Streymoy, and continue to the village of Eiði. Here more beautiful surroundings and nature await you and some of the best views of the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur, 882 metres. 2 nights on Eysturoy. 

Day 3 Eysturoy: Gjogv Village, Bird Cliffs and Ambadalur Valley
Enjoy the day at the village of Gjógv, which is known for its unique natural harbour. Here it is possible to hike on your own and enjoy the view of the birdcliffs and the beautiful valley Ambadalur. Hiking maps are available from  Hotel Gjáargarður in Gjógv. 2nd night on Eysturoy.

Day 4 Eysturoy - Northern Islands
From Leirvík drive through the sub-sea tunnel to the town of Klaksvík. The tunnel is decorated with lights made by the famous Faroese artist Tróndur Patursson. From Klaksvík you can explore the other Northern Islands, each offering dramatic landscapes. On the island of Viðoy lies the most northern village in the Faroe Islands, Viðareiði, which is definitely worth a visit. Perhaps enjoy a cup of coffee or a slice of cake at the local restaurant. Overnight in the Northern Islands.

Day 5 Northern Islands - Torshavn: Kunoy and Kalsoy Islands
We suggest that you visit the island of Kunoy in the morning. From the tiny village of Kunoy is a beautiful view of the island of Kalsoy. Above the village is a small cosy park. A local legend tells that up on a high mountain in Kunoy lies a plank from Noah’s Ark, with clams and sea shells growing on it! Back on Eysturoy drive towards the village of Søldarfjørður, where you visit a private home with an impressive garden, and enjoy coffee and cake. Then continue on to Torshavn for 2 nights.

Day 6 Torshavn: Sandoy Island, the Saga Island
Today from the harbour at Gamlarætt take the car ferry to the village of Skopun to visit the beautiful and green island of Sandoy, also called the Saga-island. The island is, compared to the other islands, characterised by mostly flat terrain and it has a wealth of history and wonderful nature. On Sandoy, visit the church, enjoy some fantastic scenic views, explore small villages and the cultural centre of Kirkjubour. And don't miss the villages of Dalur and Húsavík, which lie in beautiful surroundings. Return to Torshavn for the 2nd night.

Day 7 Torshavn - Vagar
Enjoy the day in Tórshavn on your own. Perhaps visit the village of Kirkjubøur which is the Faroe Islands’ historical and cultural centre. The picturesque old farm is home to a family who for 17 generations have run the farmstead and ecclesiastic site. See the unfinished Magnus Cathedral and the small medieval church of St.Olav. Then on to Vágar for your last night.
