Excursions - Bus tour to Saksun

Bus tour to Saksun

The picturesque village

This tour to Saksun starts in Tórshavn. Saksun is a picturesque village at the bottom of what was once an inlet surrounded by steep mountains. The inlet formed a deep tranquil natural harbour. However, a storm blocked it with sand and created the lake you will see below the village instead of the old inlet. There is an old farm Dúvugarður, which predates the 17th century which offers a glimpse of how the Faroese lived in the old days. Before leaving you will also see the Saksun church built in 1858.

 

Our next stop will be Hvalvík village. The name means ‘whale bay’ and is located in a valley on Streymoy’s east coast, near another village called Streymnes. You will have a chance to see Hvalvík church, which is the oldest in the Faroe Islands. And we will look out to sea, only 10-20 meters off the shores of Hvalvík you will spot the wreck of an old wooden ship.


On the way back, we will take the high mountain road Oyggjarvegurin for incomparable views.
