The village Saksun

We drive via the mountain road “Oyggjarvegur”. Then along the coast line, passing the old former whaling station, to the village Hvalvík, which has the oldest wooden church on the Island, and then the narrow road to the isolated settlement situated beneath the steep majestic mountains.

The village Gjógv

Visit the village Gjógv, northern part of the Island “Eysturoy”.

We drive over the mountain road “Oyggjarvegur”, then north over the island of Streymoy, where we are passing the former whaling station “Við Áir”, over the bridge to the Island of Eysturoy, passing the village of Eiði. On our way we will have a great view over the stacks “Risin og Kellingin”, then passing the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands “Slættaratindur” (882meters), then to Gjógv, with its natural harbour, a narrow ravine with high cliffs on both sides. On the way back to Tórshavn we are passing the village Funningur, where the vikings first settled down.
