Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Runavík

The unexplored, unspoilt and frankly unbelievable Faroe Islands are the enigma of the travel industry. Sandwiched in between two rather more seductive countries – Norway and Iceland, this little cluster of 18 islands is overlooked by many. More fool them we say, as the Faroe Islands are as fascinating as they come. Runavik, on the southern tip of, the Faroe’s second-largest isle, Eysturoy is the epitome of off the beaten track travel. One step off the ship and you will be engulfed by some quite staggering, magnificent and untouched nature. View more

Unsurprisingly, outdoor pursuits are a big thing here: hiking of all levels is recommended in order to experience the very grandeur of the landscape (the beautiful lake Toftavatn offers spectacular views), but if that is too strenuous, boat trips in traditional Faroese wooden boats are not only a chance to see the scenery from the water, but a thrilling adventure too. If the weather isn’t being too friendly – an occupational hazard in the Faroe Islands – then head to one the local museums to learn all about the history of this island. Often housed in restored farmhouses or parsonages, visitors get a chance to see how the Faroese used to live. While you are there, ask one of the locals to tell you one of the region’s fascinating legends; like many Nordic countries, the inherent belief in elves, undersea creatures and “rocking stones” (yes, really) is taken as gospel truth. The coasts of Eysturoy could be considered an Important Bird Area. Binoculars at the ready!
