Full description
You will be picked up in the morning at your hotel or designated pick-up point. From here on it it just a matter of sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the scenic ride, accompanied by the guide’s stories, while you drive away from Tórshavn towards the first village. 

The first village we will visit is called Saksun. Here you will have the opportunity to wander about, take pictures and enjoy the incredible beauty surrounding the village. From there you will travel to the second village is called Tjørnuvík, famous for its beachside view of ”risin og kellingin” (the giant and the witch) two majestic sea-stacks, named after a legend describing their origin. Along the journey from Tjørnuvík to the village Gjógv, you will stop by the waterfall Fossá, which is considered to be the biggest waterfall in the Faroes.

Arriving at Gjógv you will be served food and beverages. Having lunch by the huge gorge is an indescribable experience. While in Gjógv you will have time to take a stroll around the village and out to the end of the gorge, after which we will move on to a place called Eiðisskarð. From here you will have an even better view of ”the giant and the witch.” From there you will return to Tórshavn along the scenic old mountain road, along which, you will see the only prison of the Faroe Islands along with an incredible view from Norðadalsskarð, overlooking the island of Koltur. When you arrive back in Tórshavn, you will be dropped off right at your hotel or designated drop-off point.
