Enjoy the convenient hotel pickup from your centrally located Hotel or designated pick up in Tórshavn. After the pickup, enjoy the relaxing drive up the old mountain road leading out of Tórshavn. The first photo stop is at a place called “Norðadalsskarð” where you will see the beautiful island Koltur, which is located perfectly in the middle of a big valley. The tour guide will tell you some stories about the past and present of that island. After the first photo stop we will head towards Vestmanna, making a photo stop en route at the only prison in the Faroe islands, which probably has a better view than any prison in the world. In Vestmanna, we will board a boat and sail towards the Vestmanna sea cliffs. the boat trip is approximately 2 hours. When you return to Vestmanna, you will be greeted with a packed lunch and beverages. The journey continues in the bus towards Kvívík, were some of the best kept viking settlements are located. you get to wander around Kvívík for a while and feel the quiet atmosphere that surrounds the village. We will be heading back to Tórshavn on a different route, in order for you to see as much as possible on your journey. On the way to Tórshavn, you will be able to see the villages Kollafjørður and Leynar, the bus driver will make some photo stops on the way, while the guide is telling stories.
