Travel to the Faroe Islands and enjoy a break in one of the world's smallest capitals - Torshavn. Whilst it may be small, Torshavn manages to fit lots in between its winding lanes and passages. Discover restaurants, cafes and handicraft shops, visit the Faroese Museum, Art Gallery and the Nordic House. During your break at the 62°N Hotel you can join a variety of excursions to discover more of this fascinating and beautiful archipelago. Upgrade your hotel to stay at the Hotel Hafnia, Hotel Foroyar, Hotel Brandan, Hilton Garden Inn or the boutique Havgrim Seaside Hotel - just ask for details.

Today you could join a tour setting out from Torshavn to the island of Eysturoy by bus. Visit the former whaling station at Vid Áir before continuing to the village of Funning where the first Viking settlers landed, and the village Gjógv, named for the gorge that served as a natural harbour. On the route you can see Slættaratindur, the tallest mountain on the Faroes, and Eiði with the famous rock formations of the Giant and the Hag. On the way back to Torshavn stop at Saksun, a picturesque village at the end of a long valley and perched above the Pollurin tidal lagoon. (B)
Perhaps join an optional excursion to the Vestmanna bird cliffs. Leaving Torshavn the bus drives along the scenic mountain road to Vestmanna and joins a boat trip to the famous bird cliffs which tower over 600 metres above the sea, home to a multitude of sea birds including puffins and guillemots. Afterwards the boat tour stops at the ancient Viking settlements at Kvívík before returning to Tórshavn. (B)
Today you could take a tour of the Saga Island of Sandoy, one of the least spoilt islands where it is still possible to experience the traditional Faroese way of life. Explore the island with a knowledgeable and experienced guide, visiting several points of interest.
