SandoyThe island Sandoy alludes to sand from the large beach of Sandur. Many of the villages have been inhabited since the viking era.

The island is characterised by its essentially flat landscape and green countryside. Sandoy is relatively flat. You will experience lush green valleys when drive through lakes and small villages. The highest mountain Tindur elevates 479 metres above ocean level.

Sandoy will give you solitude and contemplation. In order to get to Sandoy, you will take the ferry teistin from the Streymoy island to Sandoy island. Sandoy offers quite of contrast to the looming sea cliffs and steep mountainous passes that you have see most other places in the Faroe Islands.
