It began as a Viking Thing, followed by a market, then became a thriving town, and today it is one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world. Tórshavn today blends the historical and picturesque with all the features of a modern city: quality restaurants and hotels, conference facilities, interesting museums, discotheques, cinema, live theater, exhibitions, sports facilities, parks, and, of course, excellent shopping.
Your tour will visit Tinganes, the historic part of Tórshavn. You will make a short stop at Skansin to explore the old fort before driving up to the beautiful Nordic House cultural center. From there, drive through the modern sections of the city and, before heading back to the harbor, stop briefly at a viewpoint overlooking the capital.
