After breakfast it is time to explore. At the far end of the pleasure boat marina is an exciting shop called Østrøm where you can look at and maybe even buy, some of the modern Faroese art and handicrafts. Next door is Steinprent, Faroes Graphic Workshop, visit their gallery where they have the most recent works on display.
Other exciting shops in the town are Tutl, selling Faroese music and pop-up special boutiques such as Staðið, Marjun Heimá and Silvursnið. Make sure you take a look at the beautiful Faroese designed woollens in the latest fashions, available e.g. in the exciting workroom/boutique of Guðrun & Guðrun.
On the walk around town you will pass by the quaint old bookshop which is definitely worth a visit.
When it is time for lunch or coffee, we can warmly recommend one of the cosy cafés in town, some of them offer a selection of gifts for Christmas.
If you need a break from shopping, then we suggest you visit the Nordic House which is a cultural centre, or perhaps the Art Museum which houses a wide range of Faroese art showing how nature and the landscape has always been the dominating motif throughout its entire history.
For dinner, we suggest you join one of the local Christmas Dinner parties or eat in one of the nice restaurants in Tórshavn.

SUNDAY: Departure from Faroe Islands.
Check out after breakfast. If you have chosen the afternoon flight, then you have time to experience a Faroese church service with captivating hymn singing in the Cathedral. The shuttle bus will collect you from the hotel and drive you to the airport.
