Experience the ultimate walk-and-talk tour in the Viking village Kvívík.

Your tour guide will be Petra. She was born in Kvívik and has lived in the village most of her life. Her in-depth knowledge of Kvívík and personal stories about the locals are passionately conveyed during the tour.

The walk-and-talk tour of Kvívík starts in Petra’s workshop in her home where you’re welcomed with coffee and freshly-baked pastries. You’ll be introduced to Kingo, an ancient form of traditional hymn singing. Petra is one of very few people that performs this type of singing in the Faroe Islands.

You’ll also get an insight into traditional Faroese village life; ancient ways of living, Faroes art, traditional chain dancing, culture, religion, Viking excavations, the traditional Faroese boathouses and a look at how urbanisation continues to change life in small villages across the country.
