      Day 1 - Arrive in Faroe Islands

      On your first day you will arrive in the Faroe Islands at Vagar International Airport. Pick up your rental car and begin your journey to the village of Gjógv. There is not a lot of traffic on the islands, so you’ll never feel rushed going from one place to the next. On your way to Gjógv, you’ll pass Slaettaratindur, the highest peak in the Faroe Islands. You will stay overnight in Gjógv which is a charming village situated next to a deep gorge.

       

      Day 2 - Northern Islands

      Today you will be traveling to the northern islands. On the way you’ll drive through Norðoyatunnilin, a sub-sea tunnel with a colorful light installation. Emerge on the island of Borðoy where you will find lots of promontories - high mountains that fall sharply into the sea. You’ll arrive in the northernmost village of Viðareiði where you can climb the mountain north of the village if you’re up for it. If not, enjoy a walk to Kunoy then continue your drive to Tórshavn, the capital city.

       

      Day 3 - Tórshavn

      You will be exploring the city of Tórshavn today. A must is a visit to the old town Tinganes. About a 20-minute drive outside of the city is Kirkjubøur. Here you can find the oldest church of the Faroe Islands and the 900-year-old turfed roof house, Roykstovan. You will be able to see one of the largest cultural attractions in the Faroe Islands, the ruins of St. Magnus Cathedral. You could also partake in a number of different walking tours, boat trips, fishing, or horseback riding activities.

       

      Day 4 - Vágar

      Leave Tórshavn today and continue to Vestmanna. Here you will go on an incredible boat tour to the famous bird cliffs, Vestmannabjørgini. Continue your drive to Vágar in the afternoon. Explore the awe-inspiring nature of the area.

       

      Day 5 - Return Home

      Today you will make your way to the airport and return your rental before journeying home.
