Silversea Luxury Cruises À Runavík

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!

Gøta

A tunnel will then take you to the west side of the Eysturoy Island or East Island, which is the second biggest of the eighteen islands that make up the Faroe.


Eidi Lookout

Continue towards the village of Eysturoy and cross the mountains, before stopping at the Eidi lookout.

First settled by the Vikings in the 9th century, Eiði was once the second biggest town in the Faroe Islands and today is still a healthy fishing community. Take pictures of the charming village, with its colorful houses spread out over the flat isthmus that gives the village its name, surrounded by sea and mountains.


"Risin and Kellingin" or "The Giant and the Hag"

Further north reach the highlight of the excursion, 'the Giant' and 'the Hag', two very distinctive sea stacks and emblems of an ancient legend.

Once upon a time, an Icelandic chief witch sent a giant and his wife, a witch, to the Faroe Islands to steal the islands and bring them back to Iceland. Off they went in the dusk and arrived in the north-westernmost part of the Faroe Islands. They decided to tie a rope around a mountain and pull the Faroe Islands towards Iceland. Their first attempt was unsuccessful because part of the mountain split. However, they were determined and worked all night to make it work. Like all night creatures, the giant and the witch had to hide before the sun came up, to avoid being turned into stone. This particular night, they were so pre-occupied with their task that they failed to notice the first beams of sunlight appearing on the dark horizon. Inevitably, they were turned into stone. Ever since, the giant and the witch have stood, staring westward, longing for their home country.


Slættaratindur Mountain, Funningur view point

Take in views of Slættaratindur, the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, with an elevation of 880 meters (2887 feet) above sea level. A panoramic photo stop overlooking the village of Funningur and the northern isles will be made before returning to Runavik.

Along the way, take in a splendid view of two very distinctive sea stacks known as 'The Giant and the Hag', and pass by the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, the approximately 2,894-foot-high (about 882-metre-high) Slættaratindur.

Usually guests are able to admire spectacular whirls created by the current and the tide at the foot of the bridge.


Saksun Vllage

Enjoy the wonderful scenery while driving towards the village of Saksun, one of the most distinctive villages in the Faroes. Splendidly set in a natural circular amphitheatre high above a tidal lagoon, Saksun is a wonderfully remote hillside village and is one of the most worthwhile destinations in the country. Known for its tranquil atmosphere, the tiny village of 14 inhabitants offers amazing views of the surrounding mountains.

The village includes a church, built in 1858, and Dúvugarðar, an active sheep farm which also functions as a museum.
