Explore the amazing gorge and natural harbour in the remote village Gjógv. You will have the chance to walk among the local villagers and see the gorgeous nature surrounding the untouched village Gjógv.

This guided bus tour will take you from Tórshavn from where you will head North and enter the spectacular village Gjógv brimming with atmosphere and unspoiled landscape on all sides. The drive from Tórshavn to Gjógv takes one hour.

The beautiful village Gjógv is nestled on the Northeast tip on Eysturoy island. You will experience the breathtaking gorge, which has given Gjógv its name. And make sure to walk down all the steps into the deep ravine. When in the gorge, you can stand under a enormous rock ceiling. During winter, storms will make surf fill the entire gorge. But on a clement summer day, you will be safe at the bottom of this great gorge. 

Remember to look into the sea where you will see the "Iceland Stairs". This is a stone formation which looks like a stairwell down to the bottom of the ocean. According to folk legend, the stairs stretches West and all the way to Iceland.

Now, it is time for you to relax in the cosy Gjáargarður Guesthouse. Here you will get hot drinks and pastries.

On your way back to Tórshavn, you will take some photo stops on the way such as Fossá Waterfall and Risin & Kellingin. Fossá Waterfall is one of the most famous waterfalls in the Faroe Islands where the water drops down in two levels. The sea-stacks Risin & Kellingin or the Giant and his Wife are among the most attractive rock formations in the North Atlantic. You will experience the sea-stacks from outside the village Eiði on Eysturoy island.

Now, why wait any longer? Make sure to add this guided tour to Gjógv to the cart. Check availability by choosing a date.

We had a pleasant walk around the Village. The View was fantastic and the weather Just a bit rainy. Our guide showed us the Village and was very friendly and descriptive during our excursion! In the end of the tour we had a 30minute stop for a cup of coffee and some traditional faroese cake!
