Streymoy Holidays

Streymoy is the largest of the Faroe Islands and is home to some of the most iconic sights in the archipelago, including the charming capital, Tórshavn

The historic village of Kirkjubour is home to the ruined St Magnus Cathedral and St Olav's church and was the cultural and religious centre of the Faroes during the middle ages. Here, there is a farm still occupied and worked by the 17th generation of the same family.

In the north is Tjørnuvík surrounded by mountains on three sides and the sea on the other. Here one can enjoy a spectacular view of Risin and Kellingin (the Giant & the Witch), two iconic sea stacks. Enigmatic and delightfully remote Saksun is also in this area, which sits above the Pollurin tidal lagoon. 

Streymoy is also home to the famous Vestmanna bird cliffs - and must do attraction and highlight of any trip to the Faroe Islands. Here, the cliffs rise precipitously to 650 metres above sea level and are home to nesting puffins, guillemots and razorbills, as well as a feeding ground for the sea gannets which plummet into the sea in search of fish.

A few other points of interest are Leynar, renowned for it's salmon and trout fishing and offers a lovely swimming beach for when the sun is shining, the old historic village of Kvívík is also worth a visit, where the remains of two Viking long houses have been discovered, as well as charming Hvalvík, home to the oldest wood church in the archipelago.

Streymoy is connected to Vágar by an undersea tunnel (tolls apply) and to Eysturoy by an impressive bridge over the Atlantic. Nólsoy, Hestur, Sandoy and Sudoroy are all accessible by ferry.
