Bike holiday in the Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands is the perfect place to challenge yourself on bike and at the same time bring many experiences back with you in the luggage. This bike holiday itinerary has suggestions for different routes, which take you to some of the most unique places in the Faroe Islands. Enjoy some lovely days with lots of fresh air, amazing views and experiences you'll never forget.

  • START DAY: Your choice - 7 days | 6 nights
  • SEASON: All year 
  • DIRECT FLIGHT FROM: Copenhagen (incl. in the price)


Itinerary: On your own by bike

Day 1: Arrival with Atlantic Airways. Transfer from the airport to your hotel in Tórshavn. Enjoy the rest of the day in Tórshavn.

Check in at the accommodation in Tórshavn where you will be staying for the next 6 nights

Day 2: By appointment, your bike is picked up and we suggest the following tour: Tórshavn - Kirkjubø - Velbastaður - Tórshavn. 

Kirkjubøur is the Faroe Islands’ historical and cultural center. Here lies the picturesque farm, where the present farmer is 17. Generation in the row. See the incomplete St. Magnus Cathedral, the small church of Olav from the Middle Ages.

  • Approx. 30 kilometers


Day 3: Today's bike ride is following the old road out of Tórshavn - Oyggjarvegur. Enjoy the great view both when biking north and back to Tórshavn.
We suggest biking to Norðadalsskarð, 225m above sea level, to enjoy the scenic view of the island of Koltur.

You can choose to continue to Norðadalur and experience real Faroese hairpin turns (increase of 19%).

  • Approx. 27 kilometers


Day 4: Saksun is an idyllic picturesque village at the bottom of what once was a narrow fjord with high mountains on both sides.
Today you take the local bus and get off in Streymnes. From Streymnes you bike to Saksun.

You bike back to Tórshavn along the coastal road and through the tunnel at Kollafjørð.

  • Approx. 61 kilometers


Day 5:
Sornfelli is a 749m high mountain north of Tórshavn. There is also the former military radar station and a meteorological station located. The view is the most amazing you get of almost all the islands. Especially in summer it's a great place to watch the sunset.

This is a day of great height difference.

  • Approx. 37 kilometers


Day 6:
The final tour is the great bike ride to Tjørnuvík and Eiði. Tjørnuvík is sheltered by the mountains with a unique view of the impressive rock formations the Giant and the Witch. 

Eiði is located at the foot of the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur. The high mountains give the area a lot of mystery, but not least unimaginable beauty.
You take the local bus to and from Oyrabakka. You bike across the bridge and on to Tjørnuvík and back to the bridge and to Eiði. 

Upon arrival in Tórshavn, the bicycles returned.
