Places on Faroe Islands

 

3.6.4 Main tourist attractions

You can get to the Faroes by air from Copenhagen daily (Maersk Air and Atlantic Airways). There are several weekly connections from Iceland with Icelandair. The airport is located on the island of Vágar with a bus-ferry-bus shuttle to Tórshavn. Also Smyril Line operates the ferry Norröna during the summer months in cooperation with Scandinavian Seaways. The ferry sails to Tórshavn from Esbjerg (Denmark) on Saturdays; from Bergen (Norway) on Tuesdays; and from Seyðisfjörður (Iceland) on Thursdays (1994 schedule). Strandfaraskip Landsins is operating Smyril on the route to Scotland once a week.

There is an official camping site in Tórshavn and Selatrað. There are a few youth hostels on the islands and a few hotels also. Camping can be a somewhat wet experience since the weather is highly variable - even for Nordic standards, but on a clear day the views are absolutely breathtaking.

Popular places are the westernmost island of Mykines with its large colonies of gannets (Súla; sea birds); - on Streymoy the ruins of the never-finished Magnus Cathedral at Kirkjubøur, the tiny community of Saksun with its magnificent fjord and the bird-cliffs between Saksun and Vestmanna. Also, the capital Tórshavn is a very charming city with small narrow streets and beautiful old houses in the center. On Eysturoy some attractions are the rock formations "Risin og kellingin" north of Eiði; the village of Gjógv with its very characteristic natural harbour - and nice youth hostel. Also Slættaratindur, the islands' highest point of 882 m is a popular destination for a hike.

- The Faroe Islands, a Danish dependency in the North Atlantic reached via car ferry from Esbjerg on the Smyril Line. (It's a two-night trip.) You can continue on to a fishing town in Eastern Iceland, if you like, in which case you'll see some lovely and dramatic scenery as you pass between the islands on the m/v Norröna.
