Learn about a modern-day sheep farm and taste unique Faroese delicacies

From Tórshavn we will drive to the village Nes, where we will get the opportunity to learn more about a modern-day sheep farm, right among the sheep of Torkilsheyggsgarður. 

We will also get a chance to try the homemade rhubarb cordial and taste the unique Faroese delicacies skerpikjøt and ræst kjøt. 

After saying goodbye to the sheep of Torkilsheyggsgarður, our next stop is Navia, one of the leading companies of the yarn and sweater industry of the Faroes. The brand is well-known on foreign markets as well, as they ship their products to a dozen countries abroad. At Navia you will get a chance to see and buy the finished products that come from Torkilsheyggsgarður.

When the shopping at Navia is over, we will get some lunch and rest for a while.

Next stop is Hellurnar. Hellurnar is a settlement from 1849. The old houses have been kept in the original state. One of the houses has been restored entirely with pieces of driftwood.

Hellurnar is a small village on Oyndarfjørður, located on the east side of Eysturoy. The village was founded back in 1849 of the people in the village Lamba. On January 2015 there were 13 inhabitants versus 43 inhabitants in 1985. Coffee/tea and cake will be served in the old charming surroundings. 

When we arrive back in Tórshavn, you will be dropped off at your hotel or agreed drop-off point.
