Golden Circle Classic, Faroe Islands
Enjoy the heart of the Faroe Islands with a local guide. See places like Saksun, Tjørnuvík, Gjógv, Risin & Kellingin and Fossá in one day. This is a day you will never forget.
After driving over the old mountain road out of Tórshavn you will come to the unique settlement of Saksun. The beautiful village of Saksun is situated at the base of a tiny inlet and is flanked by the lush green mountains of Koppenni and Melin. You will see the seawater lagoon, the beautiful old church, and visit the 16th-century farm Dúvugarðar with its stone walls and turf roofs.
Next, you will head to Tjørnuvík. The route will take you through the valley from Saksun with ever-changing scenery along the Dalsá river with many small waterfalls. Before reaching Tjørnuvík we will stop by Fossá waterfall, which is the tallest waterfall in the Faroe Islands.
Tjørnuvík is the northernmost settlement on Streymoy Island and is situated in an isolated inlet with towering mountains and a beautiful black sand beach. From the beach there is a fantastic view of the sea stacks Risin & Kellingin (The Giant and his Hag).
Upon arrival to Eysturoy island, you will experience the view from the road beneath Slættaratindur, the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands. From there you will see the zigzagging road we will be driving down to Funningur. The last village visit will be the peaceful and picturesque Gjógv on the northernmost tip of Eysturoy Island. Named after its amazing 200-meter gorge, which runs out from the village and into the North Atlantic sea.
