Head to Føroya Fornminnissavn Museum and discover historical artefacts from the Viking era or climb up to the Skansin Fortress and savour the panoramic views.

Sundahöfn is a modern harbour just minutes from the city centre that welcomes large ships from around the world, while smaller ships dock in the Old Harbour at the heart of town. Famous for its vibrant nightlife and vast array of cafes, bars and restaurants this diverse setting also boasts natural beauty in the unspoilt countryside. Away from the bustling centre, discover a small piece of paradise at the Nauthólsvík geothermal beach.

Visit in winter and catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis - The Northern Lights.
