Day at leisure - explore the old part of Tórshavn, Tinganes and 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. Then stop at an old viking farmstead in beautiful, quaint Kvívík village, before returning to Torshavn. Or perhaps add on an optional guided tour to the village of Vestmanna, where you board a boat and sail out to the Vestmanna bird cliffs, and into and through several sea caves and grottoes, a fabulous experience.
