This six hour day trip with a local guide takes you by bus to the famous village Saksun and to the widely known and esteemed villages on the Northern part of the island Eysturoy. There are plenty of photo opportunities and your tour guide will make sure to stop along the way so that you can snap some of the most iconic attractions.

You will be picked up in Tórshavn from your preferred pick up location. Then simply relax and enjoy the view as the bus slides along waterfalls and narrow roads to your first stop in Saksun. On your way to the beautiful Saksun, this tour will take you to the view of Koltur from Norðradalsskarð. You will see the spectacular road winding its way through the valley and with the lonely island Koltur some kilometres away from the shoreline. 

You will also have the opportunity to stand just outside the only prison in the Faroe Islands. This prison has a grass roof and a fantastic view of the fjord Kaldbaksbotnur. 

When in Saksun, soak in the stunning tidal lagoon and the small houses nestled in this deep valley with steep mountains all around it. Now you will head to the village Funningur. You have most likely seen photos of this village situated in a majestic valley. 

From Funningur you will make your way to the scenic village Gjógv, which is a small village nestled in a beautiful valley. You will be rewarded with spectacular views. This village is a must-see place for everyone visiting the Faroe Islands. Grab the chance and walk either down the stairs into the famous deep ravine in Gjógv or walk along the edge to get a spectacular view of both the gorge and the village. 

Finally, you will drive by Slættaratindur the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands and stop by the village of Eiði with the famous football pitch close to the salty North Atlantic ocean.

We have great time during the tour. We can visited a number of places within a short period of time. The lunch salmon sandwich was nice too. The guide - Karl very knowledgeable. He knows a lot of things about his homeland. Recommend for those not driving & wish to visit those areas.
