Day 3 Tuesday Tórshavn - Streymoy and Eysturoy

Pick up at your hotel for sightseeing with driver/guide to the islands of Streymoy and Eysturoy. From Tórshavn via the mountain road to the village Saksun, located in a picturesque, natural circular amphitheatre high above a tidal lagoon. Saksun has an attractive whitewashed church with a grass roof. Continue to Tjørnuvík, with a photo stop at the waterfall, Fossá, which is the highest waterfall in the Faroe Islands. Tjørnuvík is the northernmost village on Streymoy and is beautifully situated at the bottom of a bay surrounded by mountains and sandy beach. From the village there is a fantastic view of the rock formations Giant and the Witch. Cross the bridge that connects the islands of Eysturoy and Streymoy and continue to the village of Eiði.
