This forum has been most helpful in preparation for my upcoming visit to the Faroe Islands. In a couple of weeks, I'll have 3 fulls days and two half days (arrival/departure) on the Faroe Islands. I'll be renting a car and staying the entire time in Torshavn. I'm an aggressive traveler - prefer to see and do as much as possible rather than linger (particularly in a place like this). I'm a regular hiker and in very good shape. I will be traveling alone, so I don't have to worry about other schedules (i.e. sleep can be minimal to take advantage of longer daylight).
Here's what I had in mind. Do you think this is achievable (assuming the weather aligns)? Is there anything I'm missing? Anything I should forego? I'm not entirely clear on hiking times to various sites, so please advise. I truly appreciate any insight, feedback, or adjustments.
Arrival Day: Land at 13:40 PM. Take a shuttle to Torshavn and pick up rental car (I couldn't find one available at the airport). Explore the city and maybe a couple of sites nearby - eyeing Kirkjubøur and/or Syðradalur.
Day Trips from Torshavn (in no particular order depending on weather):
1. Mykinnes and Vagar - Take the helicopter to Mykinnes and then take the last ferry back. (I'm not insistent on the helicopter - just seems cool.) Return to rental car and see Vagar. Ideally, I'd like to knock out Gasadalur for the waterfall, Lake Sørvágsvatn, and Drangarnir.
2. Kalsoy, Bordoy, and Vidoy - Take the earlier ferry to Kalsoy (to see Trøllanes and the Seal Wife statue) and then return to drive Bordoy and Vidoy.
3. Northern Streymoy and Eysturoy - I would like to see Saksun, Gjógv, Tjørnuvík (the Witch's Fingers), and Vestmanna. Would I have time to hike to the top of Slættaratindur? Is Vestmanna worth it if I don't have time to take a boat out to cliffs (assuming I won't with this kind of schedule)? I've seen a number of bird cliffs in other places, so this isn't critical to me.
Departure Day - I depart at 14:35. Right now, I'm leaving this day flexible and I'm open to suggestions. Should I make an adjustment to the above and include something the morning I depart?
Thanks in advance for any help or advice. I'm excited about this adventure and expect it to be more amazing than what I've seen, read, or heard.
