Faroe Islands in your own car

The road network on the Faroe Islands is very well developed, and it is easy to get around; 80% of the islands are connected by bridges and tunnels. Every visitor should plan their stay here with the weather in focus, as the weather can be change completely – it all depends on what island you are on.

Only you and the weather set the pace on this trip.

Maria has put together a schedule, so that you will have the opportunity to get the most out of what our islands can offer – have a look down below.

A unique nature, but also so much more; you can explore the worlds smallest capitial, the world’s oldest parliament “Tinagnes”, probably the best preserved old town in Europe “á Reyni”, and the oldest wooden house in the world “Roykstovan”, the ruins of St. Magnus cathedral from the 1300s, Ólav’s church from the 1200s, the second highest promontory in Europe Enniberg (788m) and Nólsoy, with the world’s largest colony of stormpetrel and the lighthouse with the largest lens in the world.

The Faroe Islands is an experience of a lifetime; the islands have a unique nature, a rich history and a rich culture. The ever changing weather with rain, mist, heat and sunshine provides a breathtaking natural beauty, and gives it stunning colors. Meet the every so polite and hospital inhabitants of the islands, which is a substantial part of the experience. There are birds and sheep, pristine nature and isolated settlements.
There is a silence, that only gets interrupted by the cascading waterfalls, and the wildlife.

Then from Eiði to Gjógv, where you will pass the view point towards “The giant and the witch” standing in the ocean after they have been bewitched in the attemt to steal the Faroe Islands to Iceland. Then between Eiði and Gjógv you see the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur with its 882 meter.

We suggest that on the return you drive past the village of Oyndarfjørður and see the intrinsic “Rolling Stones” (Rinkusteinar), where legend has it that an old sorceress cursed two pirate ships so that they turned into stone and forever must stand by the shore and rock back and forth relentlessly.
