Spend some time in the great outdoors in the footsteps of the Vikings and get acquainted with the untouched nature. You will have mountains in all directions and be far away from city life. Take home unforgettable moments in nature.

This day tour samples the best of South Streymoy. You will see the landscapes where Viking settlers used to trek and you will hear stories about how Vikings gathered in Tinganes in Tórshavn.

Your tour guide will pick you up in Tórshavn. After a 15 minutes drive, you will start hiking through the valley Mannafelsdalur. From there you will go on a journey that is often referred to as Faroe Islands in miniature.

Soon you will see the two white domes on top of Sornfelli and you will have an amazing panoramic view of the Troll Woman's Finger or Trøllkonufingur and Vagar island. When you stand in these landscapes, it feels like you are in a scene in Lord of the Rings. Weather permitting, you will have the chance to see golden ambience from the skies as the sun pushes its way through the clouds. 

This tour offers you otherworldly waterfalls, beutiful valleys, and dramatic coastal cliffs. The tour guide will also make sure that you explore some of the most hidden spots in South Streymoy. Hiking in the footsteps of the Vikings is the perfect tour for those looking for the finest natural marvels in the Faroe Islands.

You will have endless photo opportunities so make sure to expose your camera to some of Faroe Island's most undiscovered sights. Hence, if you want to practice your skills as a photographer, the tour guide will bring you to the best spots.

Now, you will hike down to the Norðradalur valley. Soak in the beautiful view of the islands Koltur and Hestur. When you reach Norðradalur, you will have some refreshments before heading to Tórshavn. Your tour guide will give you an introduction to the oldes district, Tinganest. Here you will walk on cobbled stone and along turf-roofed houses all painted red. At the end of the Tinganes peninsula, you will see the Prime Minister's office.

Your tour guide has a deep passion for nature and will secure you the best views along the hike. Also, you will be historically enlightened along the hike and when you walk on the ancient narrow streets in Tinganes where Vikings once met every summer.
