Excursions

We would love to share the Faroe Islands with you; a modern country in the middle of the North Atlantic with breath-taking scenary, a strong sense of culture, interesting traditions and a people that live closely with nature. Here is a sample of tours that you can book in connection with the conference.

Tórshavn City Tour and Kirkjubøur, 1800-2100. DKK 435 (min. 10 persons) 
Pick up at the Nordic House. Tórshavn is a historical capital, beautifully situated at the foot of the surrounding mountains with a panoramic view of the island of Nólsoy. The town was founded in 825 AD and named after the Nordic god Thor. When you enter the old part of town, Reyn and Tinganes, you will find yourself in a confusion of lanes and narrow passages, steps and rocks and tiny black-tarred houses with white windows and green turfed roofs. You may think that you have lost your way onto the set of an historical film or into a museum, but what you see is in fact a genuine town dating from the Middle Ages and still alive with hens and children and all the buzz of ordinary life. Continue by bus to the newer part of town and historical Kirkjubøur. Return to Tórshavn. Incl: bus/guide/entrance.

 

Scenic tour of Streymoy & Eysturoy, 1700-2200. DKK 625 (min. 10 persons) 
Pick up at the Nordic House. Drive from Tórshavn to the idyllic village of Saksun surrounded by high mountains. We take a short walk in the village before continuing to the northern most village on the island of Eysturoy, the village Gjógv. Enroute we cross the bridge over the Atlantic Ocean, we pass dramatic landscape scenary with photo stop to enjoy the scenary. In Gjógv we explore the village visiting the natural harbour, walking to Mary’s bench to enjoyt the view to the northern islands. Coffee/cake served at the cosy Gjáargarður before we return to the capital via the village of Funning. Incl: bus/guide/coffee & cake.
