This is a 4-hour guided tour along the cozy walking route from Tórshavn to the village of Kirkjubøur, one of the oldest villages in the Faroe Islands. You will have some local specialties on the way.
You will meet and greet the tour guide in Steinatún, the downtown bus-stop area in Tórshavn, 10-15 minutes before the departure of bus 3, which will take us to the outskirts of Tórshavn, where the walking route to Kirkjubøur begins. This is a five-minute busride.
On the way to Kirkjubøur, you will pass the site where Faroe Islanders have gathered for open air public meetings since the second half of the 19th century – with flags, speeches and patriotic songs composed for the occasions.
You will have a great view of Sandoy, Hestur, Koltur and Vágar – and of Tórshavn and Nólsoy before you go round “Reynsmúli” on your way out of Tórshavn.
On the trip, you will be served traditional Faroese food and two cans of tasty Faroese beers. Coffee is also included in the price as well as some Faroese home-made snacks.
You will stop a couple of times along the route – to enjoy the food and beer and to relax. And you will be treated to some fun local history, and it has to be said: the view from the top is spectacular (provided it is not foggy, of course).
When you arrive in Kirkjubøur, you will have the opportunity to stroll around the village and enjoy the historical sites there. The tour guide will introduce you to:
1) Magnus Cathedral ruins from about 1300
2) Saint Olav´s Church, the oldest still used church of the Faroes dating from 12th century
3) Kirkjubøargarður, the oldest still inhabited wooden house of the world from 11th century.
You will take Bus 5E on our way back home to Downtown Tórshavn. The ride will take half an hour.
Add this hike to your cart to enjoy spectacular views and local Faroese food and beer.
