The island is a nice cozy village full of friendly people. We got there during their celebration of one of their heros Ove Joensen, which was fun to watch (lots of singing, and lots and lots of drinking). We set out for the hike of...More

A short ferry ride from Thorshavn - we did the walk to the lighthouse. This took us 5hrs and we are reasonably fit so give yourselves enough time. The walkers who do it in 3- 4 as guide suggests must not stop at all. A...More

Only a 20 minute ferry ride away, this island seems far isolated from the "big city" of Torshavn. The village is remarkable picturesque. There not much to do (an old museum, an historic boat), but it makes for a nice wander. The main reason to...More

We took the ferry over from Torshavn in the morning. After a brief stop at the tourist information center we decided to try the 5 hour hike to the lighthouse and back. It's a nice walk but most of the impressive scenery is looking back...More
