Klaksvík – Haraldssund/Kunoy
Turn left as you leave the ferry terminal and head down Nólsoyar Páls Gøta as you cycle out of town towards the tunnel to Árnafjørður. Turn left at the signpost, and head for the village of Ánir and carry on towards Strond. On the other side of the dam are the village of Haraldssund and the tunnel to Kunoy. We recommend that you catch the bus through the tunnel to Kunoy, from where you can enjoy magnificent views of Kalsoy. Savour the tranquility as you rest for a while in the idyllic plantation.
Tall and steep mountains are characteristic for the nothern islands in the Faroes. The islands of Borðoy, Viðoy and Kunoy are connected by dams and the villages by small, dark tunnels. Under no circumstances should you attempt to cycle through the tunnels!
Each route is about 20 km long. The area around the town of Klaksvíik offers great opportunities for both easy and more challenging cycling trips. We recommend the route along Niðan á Háls, which takes you up to the mountain above the town. From here there are stunning views of the town, bays and fjords and the neighbouring islands.
