On your own walk through the old part of Tórshavn, Reyn and Tinganes. When you enter the old town you will find yourself in a confusion of lanes and narrow passages, steps and rocks and tiny black-tarred houses – a genuine and unique town from the middle Ages.

The evening is at your own leisure.

SATURDAY: Boat trip to the Vestmanna Cliffs and Viking settlements.
Start the day by exploring Tórshavn on your own. At the end of the harbour is Østrom where you can see and buy contemporary Faroese art and fine craft. On the main street visit TUTL, that sells Faroese music and the shop Marjun Heimá, where you can have a closer look at the beautiful Faroese national costume.

We suggest lunch at cafe Kaffihúsið down by the harbour.

After lunch, you will be picked up at the accommodation. Excursion to the Vestmanna Cliffs. Via the mountain road to the village Vestmanna where the excursion boat awaits. The tour will take you through narrow sounds, into deep grottoes carved by the surf through ages, and close to the over 1500 feet high-rise cliffs. On the return to Tórshavn there is a stop at the Viking settlements in the village Kvívík. (excursion 5 hr.)

The evening is at your own leisure, but we suggest dinner at Restaurant Áarstova, an old protected building in the middle of town.

Pick up at the accommodation. Day tour to the Saga Island of Sandoy and village of Kirkjubøur. Sandoy is one of the most unspoiled islands where one can still experience the traditional Faroese lifestyle. Experience a church visit, fantastic scenic views and small villages.

Before returning to Tórshavn you will make a stop in Kirkjubøur which is the Faroe Islands’ historical and cultural centre. The picturesque old farm is home to a family who for 17 generations have run the farmstead and ecclesiastic site. See the unfinished Magnus Cathedral and the small medieval church of St.Olav.

The evening is at your own leisure.
