Experience a cultural evening with glowing authenticity in the remote village Gjógv. This special event is held in the grass roofed guesthouse Gjáargarður on the island Eysturoy.

Every Wednesday during summer, the cosy Guesthouse opens its doors to Faroese culture. You are invited to join á dinner buffet including fresh fish from the Faroe Islands and other tasty dishes made with local ingredients.

After dinner, a music band will play folk music or other related genres. This is always a memorable moment.

Finally, you will have the unique opportunity to join Faroese chain dance. You will get a short introduction to the easy dance steps and then you are ready to dance like a Faroe Islander. A dancing skipper with a saga-voice will sing traditional ballads mostly about Viking accomplishments.

The movement is a sideways slithering rather than a step in the dancing sense, and is simple enough to follow. These quality songs are accompanied by a cyclic movement where people are passes with linked arms and slightly swaying bodies through the hall.   

The dance is the last thing on the programme. The evening ends at 8.30.

Do not hesitate to get a fantastic experience of the local culture in the Faroe Islands. Chack availability by choosing a date.
