Arrival Vágar Airport, Faroe Islands. A representative of Heimdal Tours will be waiting for you at the arrivals gate.
You can then sit back and relax while we drive you to your 4 star hotel right in the heart of Tórshavn.
It is a 40 minute drive and your introduction to the unique and breathtaking landscapes that the Faroe islands have to offer.
Once you have checked in to your hotel, we offer you a guided walking tour of our ancient city, through the
narrow cobbled streets, between traditional wooden houses with grass turf roofs, which date back many hundreds
of years. We will also take in the the old fortress, the marina and the peninsular known as Tinganes, where you will walk
through the iconic redwood, grass-roofed buildings of some the oldest parliament buildings in the world.
We will regale you with tales of ancient Viking customs and intriguing, sometimes gruesome ways in which Viking disagreements were settled.
After your tour, we will be happy to arrange a booking for you at one of the fine restaurants in Tórshavn and we would encourage you explore the local bars and cafés and invariably, live music to capture fully the true spirit of the smallest, coziest capital in the world.
After a hearty breakfast, it is time to summon your inner Viking! and take to the seas (weather permitting), sailing to the island of Hestoy and sailing into the caves on the west of the island.
For those who wish to release their inner Viking a little more, there is the option of disembarking the boat at Borðan, on the island of Nólsoy and taking a guided walk to the village of Nólsoy, then take the evening ferry back to Tórshavn.
Local Faroese Seafood of the day will be cooked and prepared on board during the trip so that you can enjoy a Faroese meal on board whilst in the harbour at Nólsoy.
We can also book a restaurant for you on your return and we recommend that you take full advantage of a Saturday night in Tórshavn and remember to party like a Viking!
Most bars are open until the early hours.
You can choose to take it easy, or if your inner Viking is still trying to break out, we can offer you our “Footsteps of the Vikings!” walking tour to Norðadálur just outside of Tórshavn (pic top).
Or we can arrange for you to rent a car and explore either the northern islands and visit Saksun, Tjørnuvík and Gjógv – or – head for the island of Vágar and visit the village of Bø and witness the spectacular waterfall in Gásadalur.
We then suggest an evening meal in the excellent restaurant at your hotel in Tórshavn.
