Tour Code: TAN-002

Explore the pristine natural beauty of the Faroes during this scenic tour of the mountains, villages and waterways north of Tórshavn.

Depart the pier for the drive north of Tórshavn. Along the way, you will pass by idyllic villages and the old whaling station at Áir. You will then reach a bridge that spans the narrow channel of Sundini, and connects Eysturoy with the larger island of Streymoy. Because the channel is so narrow, spectacular eddies form at the base of the bridge when the current is running strong with the tide. You will have an opportunity to walk the short distance over the bridge.

Next, your drive will continue on past Eiði, and across the mountains into Gjógv. En route, you will be treated to a view of The Giant and The Hag, two very distinctive sea-stacks. You will also pass the 2,893-foot Slættaratindur, the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, and the 617-foot Gjógv Gorge, a natural harbor for fishing boats.

Following your visit, you will be transferred back to the pier.
