Join us for a lovely day in Sandoy. You start by hiking with a local guide from Skarvanes to Dalur. It's a scenic walk where you enjoy splendid views of Skúvoy and of the two islands Stóra Dímun and Lítla Dímun.

The hike starts at 14.30. When you arrive in Dalur, you will enjoy a Faroese "kvøldseta" in the village house Eiriksgarður. In the old days, it was common to work indoors in the evenings because wool had to undergo several different processes before it could be turned into garment.

To make the work more pleasant, old legends and sagas were told, and old ballads and medieval songs sung whilst working. By doing this, the work was done while a trove of folklore, legends and history was handed down to the children. 

This tradition is still honoured in the village of Dalur and it is possible to enjoy an interesting evening in the village hall where the old and young gather to work and play.

You will be offered a Faroese meal with home-baked rye bread and Faroese specialities such as dried mutton and fish.

You can watch the work being done and maybe even try some of the different activities yourself. The event concludes with traditional chain dance, in which both the villagers and guests take part.
