Enjoy the day in scenic village of Gjógv, which is known for its unique natural harbour and a beautiful view of the island of Kalsoy. The natural harbour is an attraction everyone should take time to see.

Walk along the edge of the crevice, and you might see some puffins coming out of their nests, on their way out to the ocean, to get food for their young. At the end of the crevice, facing the open ocean, it is possible to enjoy the view from Crown Princess Mary’s Bench.

DAY 5: The island Kunoy and the town Klaksvík.

We suggest that you visit the island of Kunoy. From the tiny village of Kunoy is a beautiful view of the island of Kalsoy. Above the village is a small cosy park. A local legend tells that up on a high mountain in Kunoy lies a plank from Noah’s ark. Clams and sea shells grow on it. People, who have gotten lost in the fog have seen the plank, but no one who has gone looking for it has ever found it.

Back on Eysturoy we recommend driving towards the village of Toftir to drive to Tórshavn through the new subsea tunnel. Spend the night in Tórshavn.
