DAY 1: Arrival to the magical Faroe Islands and see the largest mailbox in the world.
Arrival to the Faroe Islands.
Pick up your rental car at the airport and drive over hill and valley via Tórshavn to the ferry harbour Gamlarætt where the ferry will take you to the island of Sandoy. On the boat trip you see the islands of Koltur and Hestur.
The ferry arrives to the village of Skopun, where you will find the world's largest (blue) mailbox, which can be seen if you drive through the village.
Continue on to the small village on the island where you will stay for the next 3 nights at a summerhouse.
- Note: A new 10,8 km subsea tunnel will open between the ferry harbour Gamlarætt and the island of Sandoy in 2023
DAY 2: Saga island Sandoy - Vikings and witches.
The island of Sandoy, also called the Saga Island, is a large playground with something for everyone. Explore the beach, the picturesque villages, the sheep grazing on the green mountain sides, and the lakes where you can fish.
In the old days, there lived many witches, trolls and Vikings on the island, so there are plenty of exciting stories. Enjoy a village walk in Sandur together with a local - maybe, just maybe you will walk past the stone, where you still clearly can see a witch's footprint.
Afterwards we suggest a drive to the stone beach at Søltuvík (great place for a picnic)
DAY 3: Enjoy the day and meet many cute sheep and mabye more Vikings.
Enjoy the day on your own. It is also possible to visit the nearby Viking Island Skúvoy. This is the place where the viking chieftain Sigmundur Brestisson was born. Here he built the Faroe Islands' first Christian church, and is buried.
For an extra fee you can pre-book a village walk on Skúvoy and visit the locals where cake, juice and coffee is served.
DAY 4: Explore the capital Tórshavn and the medieval town á Reyni.
Take the ferry back to Gamlarætt. Enjoy the day in the worlds' smallest capital, Tórshavn. Take an exploratory walk through the old part of town, Reyn, with its narrow streets and grass roofs -remember to respect the privacy of the people living in the old houses.
There's also the opportunity to swim and visit he nice little aquarium, Sjósavnið, which features saltwater fish from the sea around the islands.
If you like, go by ferry to the nearby island, Nólsoy, to see where a Scottish princess once lived and to see Ro-Ove's boat, Diana Victoria. He rowed alone all the way to Langelinie in Denmark to kiss the Little Mermaid.
