Tour description and schedule

On this pre-tour, we will take you all the way from Vágar to the southernmost island, where you’ll have the opportunity to discover the island’s highlights and special experiences.

The adventure begins on Vágar, where we will visit the charming villages of Bøur and Gásadalur, providing breathtaking views over Tindhólmur, Dranganir, and Mykines. This will be followed by an easy walk to the viewpoint of Trøllkonufingur (Witches Finger), a rock formation towering 313 meters above the sea.

In the evening, we will stay at the four-star Hotel Føroyar in Tórshavn. After settling in, you’ll be welcomed to a beer tasting experience with OY Brewery, followed by dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, Ruts.

On the second day, we will take a ferry to Suðuroy, passing by several islands, including Sandoy, Stóra Dímun, and Lítla Dímun, the smallest of the islands inhabited only by sheep.

Upon arrival on Suðuroy, we will start exploring this island gem. The first highlight includes a hike to Eggjarnar cliffs, offering a breathtaking view of the beautiful and dramatic west coast of the island.

After a nice dinner, we will visit the art museum in Vágur, featuring a collection of works by one of the most famous painters from the Faroe Islands, Rutt Smith. This will be followed by a short walk to Vágseiði panoramic viewpoint, where you’ll hear the Atlantic Ocean crashing against the cliffs. For the night, we will be accommodated in cozy cottages in Vági, the island’s second-largest village.

Before returning to Tórshavn, we will journey to the southernmost point of the Faroe Islands, Akraberg Lighthouse, which stands on the edge of tall cliffs. If weather permits, we will take the old road “Um Hestin” back, one of the two designated scenic driving routes on Suðuroy.

When back in Tórshavn, we will take you to the hotel where you will stay during the Vestnorden event and give you time to explore the city on your own.
