Join a full day of awe-inspiring sceneries. Marvel at all the unspoiled sights on Suðuroy island. You will take the 08:45 ferry and leave the city behind while sailing to the most southernly island in the Faroe Islands. Relax in the ferry for the 2 hours journey while passing first the island of Sandoy then Skúvoy, Stóra Dimun and finally Lítla Dimun.
There is a licenced restaurant on the ferry. The staff serves hot and cold meals and beverages.
On arrival in Suðuroy, you will drive from the ferry port towards Froðba, said to be the oldest village in Súðuroy, taking in the unique columnal basalt cliffs. Then from Tvøroyri you will take a guided hike to Hvannhagi and Hvanndal. A place known for it’s spectacular beauty and a real hidden gem, easily accessible, so make sure to explore this secret before the crowd discovers it!
On the way back you will walk up through a gorge, where you will witness the phenomenon of the legendary, illusive, grey people of the Faroes who got caught out in the sun and had their expressions frozen in the cliff rocks.
Now, you will do a sightseeing tour of Suðuroy. This island is definitely the most beautiful island from the road.
You will visit most of the villages from the southern tip at Akraberg, then to the spectacular and breathtaking clifftops of Beinisvørð, the ancient viking settlement of Hov and make time to relax and eat a packed lunch in Famjin.
Afterwards you will head up to the northern tip of the island and you will hear the end of the Faroese saga history, as this was the scene for one of the main events.
You will stop in Hvalba on our way back to the ferry, where you will visit the ancient coal mines, in operation from the 1770’s. You will also regale the story of how three ships filled with pirates landed and ravaged the village of Hvalba.
You will then take the 18:30 ferry back to Tórshavn, leaving you to reflect on a great day and a memorable tour!
