Tour details

Pick up from Tórshavn Ferry Terminal every Monday/Wednesday/Friday at 07:15 (alternative times available on request)

15 minute minibus ride to the start of our walking tour, past Mannafelsdalur, the site of a bloody Viking battle 700 years ago where mounds of grass still grow with a red hue, said to be the blood of the slain Viking rebels, while in the distance, the NATO radar listening station nestled high above the Faroese landscape reminds us of more modern conflict.

We will soon be greeted by panoramic and truly breathtaking views overlooking Vágoy and Trøllkonufingur....a photographer's dream! .... and a landscape that would grace a Tolkien legend.
We then walk over the ridge to an open landscape with lake views at Vatnsdalur and down to Norðadalur, with spectacular views of the islands Hestoy and Kalsoy, where we will pause for Faroese delicacies and refreshments, before taking a short minibus drive into the capital, Tórshavn.

Here we will take a tour of the ancient and narrow cobbled streets that wind in and out of the traditional wooden, grass-roofed houses that truly define the Faroe Islands and on to Tinganes, to explore the ancient site and traditional red wood, grass-roofed buildings of the oldest parliament in the world. A truly iconic image of the heart of the Faroe Islands!
