Travel to the far-flung Faroe Islands during winter. Explore wild empty landscapes at your own pace on a self-drive adventure. Cross hiking trails, pretty settlements, camera-clicking vistas, and the compact capital city. The western shores of Vagar are home to a collection of historic villages, where Torshavn's charming harbour is home to a tiny bustling culture of boutique shops and eateries.
Day 1 | Arrive in Tórshavn
On arrival collect your hire car and drive approximately 50 minutes to the tiny capital. Continue to your hotel in Tórshavn and check in for a three night stay. Enjoy dinner in one of Tórshavn’s fabulous restaurants in the evening. Ask Emma to make you a table reservation.
Day 2 | Explore Gásadalur & Vágar
Arrive at the bus terminal and board your bus where your guide will be waiting to whisk you away to the western shores of Vágar. Stop in the small village of Bøur, where you'll have a great view of the peaky and uninhabited islet Tindhólmur and the stacks Drangarnir. Bøur is the last inhabited settlement before you reach Gásadalur where you will enjoy lunch and a panoramic view over the island of Mykines. Discover Múlafossur, the most famous waterfall in the Faroe Islands, before returning for dinner in the city. Ask about our favourite restaurants in the city.
Day 3 | Explore Tórshavn
Spend the day at leisure and enjoy the charming capital where a variety of restaurants, cafes and handicraft shops await. Perhaps take a short drive to visit the village of Kirkjubøur which is the Faroe Islands’ historical and cultural centre. The picturesque old farm is home to a family who for 17 generations have run the farmstead and ecclesiastic site. See the unﬁnished Magnus Cathedral and the small medieval church of St.Olav. It’s also possible to sail with old schooner boat, Norðlýsið, and discover fantastic views of the Faroe Islands from the ocean.
Day 4 | Discover The Northern Islands
Today drive via the sub-sea tunnel from Leirvík, which is decorated with lights by the famous Faroese artist Tróndur Patursson, to Borðoy. Visit the Christian’s church before continuing to Klaksvík. Explore the other Northern Islands, each offering dramatic landscapes.
