Klaksvík, on the island of Bordoy, is the gateway to the Northern Islands and the second largest settlement in the Faroes. The bustling fishing port is the administrative and cultural centre of the Northern Islands and home to Føroya Bjór, the country's national beer. Here, visitors will find a lovely high street with many interesting shops to peruse, as well as cafés and a museum.
No visit to Klaksvík would be complete without seeing Christianskirkjan church - built in the 1960s the design reflects the town's fishing heritage and the basement houses a fascinating art exhibition made with the use of driftwood.
Klaksvík is the ideal base for exploring all that the Northern Islands have to offer, including popular Kunoy, Kalsoy and Vidoy.
