Add To Plan

Board a coach at the pier for a panoramic drive across historic Tinganes, a rocky peninsula in Tórshavn harbor where the ancient Vikings met. Travel up to the scenic, ridge-top road that runs along the southern part of Streymoy Island, pausing above Tórshavn to take photos from the viewpoint overlooking the colorful capital city. In the green pastures above Tórshavn, be on the lookout for stone cairns, which marked the footpaths between villages in ancient times.

Enjoy another photo stop above Nordradalur valley, where on clear days a dramatic view of the island of Koltur stands gloriously before you. Farther north, views of Kaldbak and Kollafjørdur Fjords open below. Winding down into a valley, you will pass a charming mountain lake and pause to admire the hand-hewn stone salmon ladders leading to Lake Leynar. Arriving in Leynar, you will either watch the local woodcarver work, or enjoy a walk on Leynar Beach. The journey back to Tórshavn is via a 1½-mile-long tunnel and then along a fjord at sea level.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of moderate walking that includes some uneven surfaces, and a small incline to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. It is recommended that guests dress in warm, layered clothing and wear flat, comfortable shoes. Guests should also bring raingear in case of inclement weather. The order of the sights viewed or visited may vary.
