Tórshavn is the capital in the Faroe Islands and the most populous city. This is the hub from where most people go out and explore the untouched nature on the 18 islands.
The capital is situated a 40 minutes drive from the only airport in the Faroe Islands, Vagar Airtport (FAE). Tórshavn is nestled on Streymoy island which is connected to Vagar island and the airport there by a sub-sea tunnel. You can reach Tórshavn from the airport by public bus and taxi. Most car rental companies have offices at the airport and they all offer you to pick up and drop off your car at the airport.
You will find most hotels in the Faroe Islands in Tórshavn including the only 4 star hotel (two new 4 starred hotels will open in May 2020). All hotels are in a walking distance from cafés and restaurants in the city centre.
Almost all day tours to the different attractions in the Faroe Islands start from Tórshavn. Most tours use the Tórshavn Bus Terminal as a pickup location. Pick up for all day tours is typically made between 8 and 9 in the morning.
The public ferry Smyril to Suðuroy islands departs from the harbour in Tórshavn as well as the ferry Ternan to Nólsoy island. The departure location at the harbour is near by Tinganes which is the oldest district in Tórshavn. Tinganes is where you will find the Prime Minister's Office as well as government ministries.
Streymoy is the largest island of the 18 islands that make up the Faroe Islands. It is situated in the middle of the archipelago and makes up 24% of the total land area and 50% of the entire population. You will find stunning sights on Streymoy island such as the villages Saksun and Tjørnuvík and the tallest waterfall Fossá.
The best known attraction on the island is the Vestmanna Sea Cliffs in the village Vestmanna. Streymoy is connected by roads to two neighbouring islands Vágar island and Eysturoy island by a 5 kilometre (3,1 miles) sub-sea tunnel and a 250 metres (820 feet) bridge, respectively.
Vagar island is the westernmost of the largest islands in the Faroe Islands. The island is like a ‘Faroe Islands in Miniature’ due to the wealth of attractions and natural wonders found here.
The island of Vágar is home to many of the most loved places in the Faroe islands among others: Múlafossur waterfall in the tidy village Gásadalur, the 313 metre (1027 feet) high rock formation Trøllkonufingur just outside the village Sørvágur and the sea stack Dunnesdrangar west of the airport.
On this island you will also experience the sheer cliff Trælanípan from where you will see the lake above the ocean, the waterfall Bøsdalafossur that flows into the Atlantoc Ocean from the largest lake in the Faroe Islands, Leitisvatn, and the village Bøur with lots of turf roofed houses and from where you can also see the famouse Drangarnir sea-stacks with the hole in the middle and the islet Tindhólmur with the many peaky upright tips.
You can see Árnafjall mountain when in the popular village Gásadalur. Árnafjall peaks at 722 metres (2369 feet) and is the highest mountain on Vágar island. The only airport in the Faroe Islands, Vagar Airport (FAE), is also situated on this island.
Lake Leynavatn on Streymoy island is just beside the road when you head out from the sub-sea tunnel from Vágar to Streymoy island. Home to salmon and trout, this is one of the best location for sports fishing in the Faroe Islands. Also, the Michelin restaurant KOKS lies beside the lake in quiet surroundings.
Vagar Airport (FAE) is the port of arrival for most visitors to the Faroe Islands. This is the only airport in the Faroe Islands situated on Vagar island in the western part of the country.
The airport lies just beside the village Sørvágur in the western end of the runway and at the opposite end of the runaway lies lake Leitisvatn, which is the largest lake in the Faroe islands. The runway is 1799 metres.
Vagar Airport was established during World War ll by the British Army. The runway has been extended since then and the facilities around the airport upgraded. A new terminal was inaugurated in 2014 with a tax free shop, restaurant, bar, resting area and a new arrival hall.
When approaching the airport, you will either descend over Lake Leitisvatn or over the Sørvágsfjørður fjord and then the village Sørvágur just before landing. If the plane enters the runway over Sørvágur, you will have the terminal building on your left hand side upon landing.
After you have disembarked the airplane, you will walk outside for less than a minute before entering the terminal at Vágar Airport. The atmosphere at the airport is relaxed as there is only moderate traffic. There are daily flights to Copenhagen and weekly and seasonal flights to other destinations.
The airport is a 40 minutes drive from the capital, Tórshavn. There are several daily bus departures from the airport to Tórshavn as well as taxi transfer operated by different companies.
One of the most popular attractions in the Faroe Islands the village Gásadalur lies only a 15 minutes drive from the airport. Gásadalur is where you will experience the famous Múlafossur waterfall that drops into the ocean.
