Information about Kalsoy

KalsoyYou will find the island Kalsoy in the northern part of the Faroe Islands. The island stretches over 18 km (11 miles) and there are 4 villages nestled in beautiful valleys. 

Roads and tunnels connect the villages on the island. The ferry to Kalsoy departs from the second largest town in the Faroe Islands, Klaksvík. The ferry arrives on the southernmost village on the island, Syðradalur.

From Syðradalur, you can drive north along the east side of the island with Kalsoyarfjørður fjord on your right hand side along the route. You will experience the two islands with the steepest mountains in the Faroe Islands – Kalsoy and Kunoy

Kalsoy has two famous sights one being the legendary Kallur lighthouse in the most northernly part of the island and the other attraction is the Seal Woman or Kópakonan in the village Mikladalur. The highest peak on Kalsoy is the beautiful Nestindar mountain which elevates up to 788 metres (2585 feet).

If you do not fancy narrow tunnels, you can park your car in the fishing town Klaksvík, which is situated on the nearby island Borðoy. From here you will take the public ferry SAM to Kalsoy island and then the public bus to the four small villages on the island.

Scenes in the 25th James Bond movie NO TIME TO DIE were filmed on Kalsoy island. The Faroe Islands James Bond sceneries were filmed in the northernmost village Trøllanes and around Kallur Lighthouse.
