Embark on an exciting excursion around Tórshavn, the unique capital city of the Faroe Islands.

Board your coach to visit the National Museum of the Faroe Islands in Hoyvík. This beautiful museum is situated overlooking the rugged coastline of this bustling little city, and has exhibits showing the history of these magnificent islands since their settlement by Viking explorers, with an extensive maritime collection, and a variety of traditional Faroese clothing. Afterwards, we will the surrounding hills for a stunning view of Tórshavn and the island of Nólsoy, proceeding towards Kirkjubøur.

The old farmstead of Kirkjobøur is a Faroese cultural gem. Owned and operated by the same family for seventeen generations, this tiny village was once the ecclesiastical center of the islands, with a wealth of history to explore. The traditional turf-roofed houses of the village are some of the oldest continually used buildings in the world, dating to the 11th Century, while ruins of the never-finished 13th Century St Magnus Cathedral can be seen nearby. The oldest church in the Faroe Islands still in use (St Olav’s Church) can also be visited nearby.

From here, we return along the coast and over the mountains back to the port of Tórshavn.
