The town is adorned with numerous outdoor sculptures.
Day 2 – Saturday
Guided day tour: Today we visit some of the mos beautiful sights of the Faroes:
• The village of Saksun near the northwestern coast of the island Streymøy. Turf-roofed church of Saksun and the Dúvugarður farm museum are located at the bottom of a former inlet of the sea and surrounded by high mountains, formerly a good natural harbour until a storm blocked it with sand creating a seawater lagoon.
• Gjógv is a picturesque and northernmost village on the island of Eysturøy. At the edge of this beautiful village with old wooden turf-roofed cottages there is the „gjógv“ – a 200-metre long sea filled gorge after which the village is named. Here we stop for lunch and taste some of the Faroese delicacies.
• Driving to Eiði we can observe „Risin og Kellingin“ - the legendary rocks rising 75 metres up from the sea just bellow th 343-metre high promontory of Eiðiskollur. Along this route we also get a good view of Slættaratindur – with 880 metres elevation it is the highest Faroese mountain.
• Last but not least: Tjørnuvik – the northernmost village on the island of Streymøy – one of the oldest Faroese villages that can be traced back to the era of the Vikings. Ssurrounded by high mountains with a beautiful sand beach the place offers fantastic scenery. From the beach you can observe the Giant and the Witch (Risin og Kellingin) on the horizon and enjoy the serene tranquility of the nature.
We return to Tórshavn where we stay overnight.
Day 3 – Sunday
Guided day tour: Vestmanna bird cliffs
Driving along the panoramic mountain road we reach the Vestmanna cliffs where we join the 2-hour boat tour to the the renowned Bird cliffs. Sailing through the narrow sounds, deep grottoes and along the high cliffs while observing thousands of the nesting sea birds is a breath taking experience not to be missed.
We return to Tórshavn. Rest of the day free in the city.
Day 4 – Monday
