Bus tour Tórshavn and Kirkjubø

Bus tour Tórshavn and Kirkjubø

A guided tour in the old part of Tórshavn and in the historical village of Kirkjubø with hot drinks and pastries

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.

 

In the period 04.04-06.06 / 29.08-31.10.2019 the bus arrives with the ship Norröna at 15:00. Therefore please note that there might be some waiting time before the bus arrives at the terminal. Please look for the bus called HK Bussar.
