Day 2
Fossá Waterfall

Streymoy, Fossá Waterfall & Eysturoy

Today, you will explore some of the most beautiful sights in the Faroe Islands. You will head out for a seven hour guided tour to remote villages and stunning landscapes including Saksun. You will be picked up at 08:30am at your hotel.

When heading North from Tórshavn to the beautiful attractions, you will stop at Norðradalsskarð where you will have the classic view of Norðradalur and the island Koltur. A little bit further down the Oyggjarvegur road you will stop by the grass-roofed prison situated in the Mjørkadalur Valley. Mjørki means fog, hence the name Fog Valley. On a clear day you will see the prison and the remarkable view of the Kaldbaksfjørður fjord.

The village Saksun is set in otherworldly beautiful surroundings. Take a deep breath and feel the wind in your hair as you stand above a tidal lagoon with steep mountains in all directions. You will experience waterfalls on the mountain sides and small turf roofed houses overlooking this spectacular place.

After exploring the fantastic scenery in Saksun, you will continue to the next location, the famous Fossá Waterfall. This impressive attraction falls over two ledges before cascading down to the black volcanic rock. If you like to get really close to Foassá Waterfall the you can go for a stroll behind the waterfall. The water is so pure that you can drink it directly from the river.

Next up is the remote village Tjørnuvík. The village has an energy of its own. Tjørnuvík is tucked away in a majestic valley with a view of the North Atlantic Ocean. You will feel a deep serenity when standing in the middle of this village and the only sound you can hear is the waves on the sandy beach and the white surf along the shoreline. You will see the sea stacks Risin & Kellingin in the distance. The place is magic.

Finally, you will go see the dramatic gorge in Gjógv. Until now you have been on the island Streymoy. Now you will cross a short bridge and visit Eysturoy island. This unique village is drawn along the shore just beside a huge gorge. You will have the opportunity to take the steps down to the gorge and also walk along the 200 metre gorge and have a nice view of this natural phenomenon and the small village.

On your way back to Tórshavn, there will be some stops on the way. Make sure to bring your camera for this day.

You will stay in Tórshavn for the night.

Day 3

Classic spots in Vagar island

When you reach the village Miðvágur, you will start a two hour hike to some of the most majestic attractions in the Faroe Islands. You will hike along the largest lake in the Faroe Islands before you get to the Slave Cliff. This is the spot where you will see Lake Leitisvatn hovering over the ocean. Enjoy the power of nature and the joy of solitude.

As you stand on Trælanípa as this cliff is called in Faroese, you can see the small islands Koltur and Hestur when looking south. You can also spot your next attraction the jaw-dropping rock formation Bøsdalafossur Waterfall that flows into the ocean.

The hike from Trælanípa to the extraordinary waterfall Bøsdalafossur is short. Now you will walk to the edge of Lake Leitisvatn and stand by the untamed coast and enjoy the waterfall in full glory. Most travellers say that it is a humble experience to stand beside Bøsdalafossur and also experiencing the rock cliff Geituskorardrangur thrusting through the ocean. The view will most likely take your breath away and you will feel as if you have reached the edge of the world.

Now, you will hike back from where you started and your tour guide will take you for a drive to the turfed village Bøur. You will have the best view of Tindhólmur islet and see the sea stacks Drangarnir from the village.
