Faroe Islands in your own car
4 days incl. ferry and hotel
The road network on the Faroe Islands is very well developed, and it is easy to get around; 80% of the islands are connected by bridges and tunnels. Every visitor should plan their stay here with the weather in focus, as the weather can be change completely - it all depends on what island you are on.
Only you and the weather set the pace on this trip.
Maria has put together a schedule, so that you will have the opportunity to get the most out of what our islands can offer - have a look down below.
A unique nature, but also so much more; you can explore the worlds smallest capitial, the world's oldest parliament "Tinagnes", probably the best preserved old town in Europe "á Reyni", and the oldest wooden house in the world "Roykstovan", the ruins of St. Magnus cathedral from the 1300s, Ólav's church from the 1200s, the second highest promontory in Europe Enniberg (788m) and Nólsoy, with the world's largest colony of stormpetrel and the lighthouse with the largest lens in the world.
The Faroe Islands is an experience of a lifetime; the islands have a unique nature, a rich history and a rich culture. The ever changing weather with rain, mist, heat and sunshine provides a breathtaking natural beauty, and gives it stunning colors. Meet the every so polite and hospital inhabitants of the islands, which is a substantial part of the experience. There are birds and sheep, pristine nature and isolated settlements.
There is a silence, that only gets interrupted by the cascading waterfalls, and the wildlife.

Day by day suggestion
In the early morning, you'll arrive at our beautiful islands, after 36 hours onboard the M/S Norrøna, and you will head directly north to your "new home" for the next 3 nights - Gjáargarður**.
We recommend that you take a detour to visit the scenic village of Tjørnavík,
where you should take off your shoes, and cool your feet on the lovely beach. In Tjørnavík you will see visible traces of the Vikings. On the way back to Gjógv you should stop by Saksun,
which is definitely worth a visit - see the church and the museum Dúvugarður. On the mountain pass between Gjógv and Eiði you will spot the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands.
Today you will go southwest, to the island of Vágar, and see the church of Sandavági,
the war museum in Miðvág, Kálvalíð, the beautiful village Bøur and the isolated village of Gásadalur.
Then your trip goes to Tórshavn,
where we'd suggest you to take a walk through the oldtown, as well as a visit the old cultural hotspot Kirkjubøur.
Todays excursions are located on the northern islands; first you will be heading to Viðareiði, the northernmost islands of the Faroes. Here you'll have the opportunity to climb the second highest promontory in Europe "Enniberg", and enjoy the exceptional view over Fugloy, Svínoy, Borðoy and Kunoy.
Maria suggests that you visit Elisabeth (Hjá Elisabeth), a small guesthouse in Viðareiði, to have lunch or perhaps a cup of coffee.
After Viðareiði you'll drive by the dam to Kunoy, where you can have a walk through the idyllic plantation.
We also recommend that you visit the viking settlement in Leirvík, as well as you should visit the village of Oyndarfjørður, where you will see the mystical "Rolling Stones" (Rinkusteinar), where legend says that an old witch cursed two pirate ships, turning them into rocks, and forever make them rock at the shore. You should also visit the church, where the danish painter Eckersberg, painted the altarpiece.
Today you should enjoy the scenic village Gjógv,
and take a hike to Ambadalur, before you head to Tórshavn, where the ferry leaves for Denmark at 21.00.
We at Make Travel hope that you have enjoyed your stay on our beautiful islands, and that you will bring a few memories with you home.
