Jump on board a guided bus tour from Tórshavn to the iconic village of Saksun. There is a reason why Saksun shows up no matter how you Google the Faroe Islands. Saksun is surrounded by stunning mountains and beautiful waterfalls.

There is a gorgeous tidal lagoon encircled by sand and the river running through the mountains. The famous natural harbour is a must see experience when you visit Faroe Islands. The small village of Saksun is nestled above the Pollurin lagoon, which goes all the way out to the North Atlantic Ocean.

The old farmhouse Dúvugarður dates probably some 300 years back in time. The locals lived in the farmhouse until the 1940s by up to twenty people.

Now Dúvugarðar is a museum. You will visit the old house and see how the people in the Faroe Islands lived back in the days. It gives a good idea of what life was like on an old farm.

Before leaving you will also see the famous white grass-roofed church in Saksun. The spectacular atmosphere in Saksun will charm everybody who visit the village. Saksun's amphitheatrical position around the natural harbour is exceptionally beautiful.

There is a feeling of mystery in Saksun, a remoteness that is difficult to define.

On your way back to Tórshavn from Saksun you will drive through the long Saksunardalur valley surrounded by high mountains with a number of waterfalls. The first village after the 10 km ride through the valley is Hvalvík. In Hvalvík you will see the oldest wooden church in the Faroe Islands.

When returning to Tórshavn you will be taken experience the first road that connected the capital in the Faroe Islands to the villages up north. This is a mountain road called Oyggjarvegurin. Here you will get gorgeous views of the steep mountains.

Immerse yourself in the unbelievable nature in the Faroe Islands with this beautiful sightseeing tour to Saksun. Check availability by choosing a date.

Great trip, really good value for the money. Saksun was beautiful, and the other stops on the tour were also interesting. The bus drive was comfortable, with amazing scenery along the way, and the guide was great, with lots of interesting stories and facts about the Faroe Islands. Very recommendable!
