Plans have been made to build a guest-house in the village of Húsar on Kalsoy in the northeast part of the Faroe Islands, reports Kringvarp Føroya, adding that the current plan is to open the guest-house next summer.
Kringvarp Føroya asked Magni Garðalíð, who is one of the initiator behind the guest-house plans, why plans have been made to build a guest-house in Húsar.
To this Garðalíð – a local resident on Kalsoy who has some experience within the field of tourism – replied: ”The demand for overnight stays on Kalsoy is high. Around 30.000 people come to the island every year, and we must be ready to welcome these people. Kalsoy is a very interesting island. There are four villages on the island and all of them have something to offer to visiting travellers”.
To begin with, the guest-house will have four or five bedrooms, but Garðalíð is considering an expansion.
Garðalíð stated in the interview with Kvf that guest-house will also serve food, including packed lunches to customers who are going hiking.
The guest-house will be beautiful with attics and bay windows, says Garðalíð.
