Scenic and historical tour on Streymoy and Eysturoy
Wednesdays from 7th of June until the 30th of August at 8:50 am
This tour starts in Tórshavn and heads out along the beautiful mountain road above Tórshavn called Oyggjarvegurin, literally the ‘Island Road,’ and over the Norðradalsskarð mountain pass, from where you can see the islands of Koltur and Hestur.
Then we continue to Kollafjørður, which is the longest village in the Faroe
Island and is located on Streymoy’s east cost. ‘Fjørður’
means fiord or inlet in Faroese and the village Kollafjørður contours the fiord, so it stretches along nearly 10 kilometres, in spite of its small size. The characteristic parish church in Kollafjørður dates from 1837.
The tour continues over the bridge that connects Streymoy and Eysturoy, which is, in fact, the only bridge across the North Atlantic. After crossing we drive past a few
small villages on our way to Søldarfjørður, were we will stop for hot drinks and pastries at the cosy 19th century country home “Garðahúsið”.
The Village Søldarfjørðuris part of a chain of villages stretching along the entire east side of the Skálafjørður inlet on Eysturoy. This tour is both scenic and historical.
