Capture the most sought-after attractions on northern Streymoy and Eysturoy on camera. You will join a local guide and photographer who will take you to the best attractions on the beautiful northern part of Streymoy and Eysturoy.

Your first stop will be Gjógv. Here you will see the impressive gorge in the middle of the scenic village of Gjógv. You will walk 200 metres along the edge of the ravine until you reach the end and highest point. From this spot you will have a breathtaking view of the entire gorge together with the village and the wide mountain sides. Experiencing the untamed nature surrounding the cosy village life in Gjógv is breathtaking. You will also have the opportunity to come close to the rich birdlife here.

Afterwards, your tour guide will take a short drive uphill, followed by a walk to the famous Hvíthamar site where you get to experience the panoramic view overlooking Funningsfjørður fjord. This is one of the most stunning fjords in the Faroe Islands. Hvíthamar is situated on the steep ridge halfway between Funningur and Middagsfjall mountain.

Next, you will stop along the mountain road to snap the village Funningur from the mountainside of Slættaratindur. This is where you will see the iconic road zigzagging its way towards the small village Funningur.

Taking the scenic route back, we will stop at Eiðiskollur to enjoy the view of the legendary Risin & Kellingin (the Giant and the Witch). Last, (but not least!), we will head back towards Streymoy where we will stop at Faroe Island's largest waterfall, Fossá, whereafter we go to Tjørnuvík, where you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and have a stroll on the beautiful black beach.

You can join this tour as an expert in photography or as an enthusiastic novice. The locations on this tour are on the north of the island of Streymoy and Eysturoy. You will stand on the very same spot where all the well known photos are taken from, but once you see them with your own eyes (and camera!) prepare to be amazed.

The meeting point for this tour is við Streymin by the Magn gas station. From the Magn gas station you will head to your first location of the day: Gjógv.

You will join a tour that takes advantage of the ever changing light in the Faroe Islands. Expect to see several season during the course of the day!

Once you reach your location, the tour guide will assist you getting the perfect camera angle that will do for the best shot. The tour guide will inspire you but let you take your photos yourself.

What are you waiting for? Take advantage of the knowledge of a local photographer when experiencing these famous sights on northern Streymoy and Eysturoy. Check availability by choosing a date.
