Information about Kunoy

By Verified Expert

​Kunoy is one of the island in the northern part of the Faroe Islands. The island is long and narrow. Due to its steep mountains with kilometres of rock face, there are only two villages on the island: Kunoy and Haraldssund.

There is road connection all the way from Tórshavn to this island. When getting to Kunoy from the capital, you drive through tunnels, a bridge, an undersea tunnel and finally crossing an embankment to reach Haraldssund on Kunoy island.

From Haraldssund there is a tunnel that leads to the village Kunoy. The tunnel through the mountain has one lane only and is very narrow.

The name of the highest peak on Kunoy island is Kúvingafjall (830 m). Kunoy translates directly to Woman island.

When in the village Kunoy on the west side of Kunoy island, you will have a great view of Kalsoy island. You will see the Kalsoyarfjørður fjord, where aerial filming of Kalsoy island were captured in the James Bond movie No Time To Die.
