Bus tour Tórshavn and Kirkjubøur

Historical village and a roundtrip in the capital

Bus tour with experienced guide to historical Kirkjubøur and around Tórshavn the capital of The Faroe Islands.

 

Kirkjubøur is the historical heart of the Faroes. The little village is located on the south west coast of Streymoy and offers a stunning view of the islands Hestur and Koltur. In the Middle Ages it was the Faroese Episcopal See, which made it the country’s spiritual and cultural hub.

 

On this unique excursion we will have a guided tour in the old city of Tórshavn, which is quite possibly the world’s smallest capital, with the most charming houses and eco-friendly grass roofs, and then drive up across beautiful mountains, past the village Velbastaður clinging to the steep slopes.

 

The bus trip is both scenic and informative. We will visit the enigmatic Magnus Cathedral, built around the year 1300 by Bishop Erlendur, the St. Olaf’s Church and the Kirkjuböargarður estate farmhouse (Roykstovan), a stave house dating back to the turn of the first millennium, said to be the world’s oldest inhabited wooden house. To round off the visit, there will be hot drinks and pastries in the atmospheric Roykstovan.
