This is a town full of stories - so don't be afraid to ask questions when you see a local, who will proudly regale you with the details and intricacies that lie just out of sight. Viking-era history and breathtaking natural scenery entice visitors to Klaksvik, making it the perfect base for further explorations of these wild and remote fantasy islands. Pretty Christianskirkjan church was constructed from local materials and rises as a modern, elegant church, inspired by old Norse architecture. Dating back to 1963 it's elegantly lit and full of detail. Look up to see the suspended wooden boat, which survives from 1890, and was used by the sea-faring local priest to visit the surrounding communities. The boat is now dedicated to those lost at sea, having survived a storm in 1913. The granite font alone has 4,000 years' worth of history. These islands may be remote, but they are teeming with birdlife. Sail out to the sheer cliff faces, where adorable puffins and kittiwakes breed. Gorgeous hikes will take you across scenic mountain passes, through historic hamlets, and high up above stunning viewpoints like the one waiting at Hálsur. Or climb on a bike to feel the wind in your hair, as you explore at your own pace, along paths roaming through fertile green valleys.

He defended the old Viking ways against the desire of the Norwegian king and the Faroese chieftain, Sigmundu Brestisson, to convert the Faroese to Christianity.

Afterward, proceed for a visit to Navia, a Faroese producer of woollen clothing. Here, modern designs are combined with age-old methods and traditions, lending each piece a unique character and the highest quality.
