Information about Viðoy

By Verified Expert

Viðoy is the most northernly island in the Faroe Islands. The island is home to the much visited village Viðareiði where you will also experience mountain Villingadalsfjall.

Villingardalsfjall is the highest mountain on the island. The mountain peaks at 841 metres making it among the highest mountains in the archipelago.

It requires a great effort to hike up the steep hillside from the village Viðareiði to the Villingardalsfjall summit. Expect to hike for two hours in order to reach the top.

The church in Viðareiði is much appreciated for its epic location next to the craggy coastline. Viðoy is connected to its neighbouring island Borðoy by an embarkment.
