Day 1: Copenhagen- Faroe Islands
Flight from Copenhagen to the Faroe Islands. On arrival, pick up your hire car at the airport and enjoy the rest of the day on Vágar island. Drive to the village of Gásadalur, walk along the marked path, and enjoy the impressive view of Tindhólm. Do not miss the attractive waterfall that runs down into the sea. 2 nights on Vágar.

Day 2: Mykines Island Excursion
Day trip to the bird island of Mykines. Drive to the harbour in Sørvágur where your trip begins. Enjoy an impressive boat ride trip alongside the majestic sea cliffs to reach the island where you can see charming puffins with their colourful red beaks and  striking gannets that only breed on Mykines. Back in the village, perhaps enjoy a coffee at the local café before taking the ferry back to Sørvágur. 2nd night on Vágar.

Day 3: Picturesque Villages and Eysturoy
Enjoy the day by driving to some beautifully located villages including Saksun and Tjørnuvík, surrounded by steep mountains. From here, you will be able to see the unique rock formations known as ‘The Giant and the Old Hag’. Drive over the bridge that connects Streymoy and Eysturoy towards the village of Eiði, where there is a view of Slættaratindur, the Faroe Island’s highest mountain. The exceptional scenery continues as you drive to Gjógv to see the distinctive natural harbour. A day with countless photo stops en route. 2 nights on Eysturoy.

Day 4: Landscapes, Tunnels and Northern Islands
Drive from Leirvík through the sub sea tunnel to Klaksvík. The tunnel is decorated with ‘light’ art by the well-known Faroese artist Tróndur Patursson. When you arrive in Klaksvík, we suggest a visit to the elegant Christian’s Church and the exhibition in the cellar. It is easy to explore the other Northern Isles from Klaksvík, each with its own dramatic landscape. For example; drive to Viðareiði, Faroe Islands most northerly village on Viðoy island or Kunoy island where you can walk in the pretty little plantation. 2nd night on Eysturoy.

Day 5: Eysturoy - Torshavn
Take a walk along one of the paths at Toftavatn, which is a popular getaway for the locals. Afterwards drive around the lake towards the village of Nes and onto Eystnes where the windmills are. Or browse the shops which sell traditional and modern Faroese yarn and woollens, local handicraft and Faroese designed products. In the afternoon begin the drive back to Tórshavn, stopping for tea/coffee and cakes at a private home. 2 nights in Tórshavn.

Day 6: Torshavn Exploration
Perhaps start the day by discovering Tórshavn with a walk through the old town, Tinganes and the charming area called Reyn with its small black houses and grass roofs. Visit the Nordic House, an architectural gem that hosts many local and international events. We recommend a drive to Kirkjubøur, the ancient cultural centre. Back in Tórshavn, you will find some great restaurants and cafés. 2nd night in Tórshavn.
