Description

A whole day guided tour up North visiting the islands of Kalsoy, Kunoy, Vidoy, Bordoy, Streymoy and Eysturoy

Sit down and relax in a comfortable coach and listen to the stories and legends from the local tour guide.

We will be sailing with a small ferry to the beautiful Kalsoy island, where we will visit Trøllanes, Mikladalur, Syðradalur, and drive past the village of Húsar.

In Trøllanes we will visit a local Smithy and get a chance to spot some Puffins. This is also the location in the Faroes used and featured in the new 007 James Bond Movie – No Time To Die.

After a local dinner we will head back south through the many tunnels of this island.

Mikladalur, the next village, is the home to the famous Seal Woman statue and Syðradalur offers a beautiful Memorial to locals who have died at sea.

We will spend a while in Klaksvík, the second most populous City in the Faroes, and the quiet Kunoy, before heading to the southern part of Eysturoy island. There we will see a few landmarks, enjoy some stunning scenery and get close to a Windmill. After that we will get an inside look at a Sheep-House and get to say Hello to a few sheep, while hearing the history of sheep farming and wool working in the Faroes. After this you will have the possibility to shop for wool-wares in the Navia shop before we head back home to Tórshavn through the new Sub Sea Tunnel. This is sure to be a day you will not forget anytime soon.
