Saksun Winter Tour | And Two Other Villages
Come along a memorable day tour to the Faroe Island's winter scene in the beautiful villages Saksun, Kvívík, and Hvalvík. You will see all the very best highlights and amazing attractions.
This tour is perfect for those who want to see the best of what the island Streymoy has to offer. From Viking ruins to spectacular nature.
The tour is tailored to travellers who want to maximise their experiences on the main island Streymoy. You will see ocean waves crashing into the rocky shore from the village Kvívík and you will get a majestic view in Saksun over the tidal lagoon and the charming turf-roofed houses.
You will be picked up in Tórshavn and from there head to the old Viking village Kvívík. On your journey from Tórshavn to Kvívík, you will pass the mountain road from Tórshavn. There are really good photo opportunities on the way and the bus driver will make sure to stop so that you can take some photos.
I Kvívík there is a main river that cascades down through the mountain side. The excavated houses in Kvívík show that there is an ancient Viking settlement.
There is a small harbour in Kvívík. During winter the harbour is often exposed to the full force of the waves.
From Kvívík you will head to Hvalvík. In this less known village you will get a glimpse of one of the traditional wooden churches. There is a great view in Hvalvík towards the valley leading to Saksun.
The last stop on this tour is Saksun. You will drive through the 10 km long valley before reaching the stunning sights in Saksun. Visiting Saksun is an unforgettable experience. Saksun has its own unique setting with waterfalls, steep mountains and the tidal lagoon.
