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! So don't delay—join this amazing small-group guided excursion and you too can experience the best of Suðuroy's natural delights! Check availability by choosing a date.

Tórshavn Essential Harbour Round Trip

Jump onboard a traditional Faroese boat and explore the capital Tórshavn from the seaside. This harbour round trip is done in an eco-friendly electrical boat which will reduce your carbon footprint on your Faroe Islands holiday. The experienced captain will sail you to the red turf roofed buildings Tinganes home to the Faroese government. From there you will head to the Sandagerð beach and finally you will sail along the undisturbed coastline south of the Argir district. When you reach the seaside outside at Argir, you will be rewarded with peaceful nature. Small waterfalls will drop into the ocean here and expect to see exciting wildlife. Even though you are just outside the capital, you will find yourself in tranquil settings and experience an undisturbed moment near the Streymoy island.  As this is an electric boat, there is no noice at all so you will only hear the ripples whilst sailing with no rush just outside the capital. You will stay near the harbour area all the time so the tour can be done by everyone as the tour is not weather dependent. This tour gives you access to the Faroese boat heritage in a zero-emission and soundless vessel. You will join an unpolluting and environmentally friendly trip that contributes to green living in the Faroe Islands. The boat departs from the harbour in Tórshavn several times a day at Bryggjubakka just beside the café Umami and Kaffihúsið. This is a small group tour and there are 5 seats available on the boat. The Faroese boat is the perfect place to watch seabirds. If you are lucky, you might get a glimpse of seals swimming along the seaside. There are lots of great photo opportunities of the scenery and wildlife on this half hour boat sightseeing tour. Now, what are you waiting for? Enjoy the Tórshavn seaside in a sustainable and eco-friendly way. Check availability by choosing a date.
