Where to stay in Streymoy

Although small villages usually have some available rooms with commendable service, the island's capital--Torshavn--offers the most options, ranging from 4-star hotels to guesthouses and lodges. Most hotels are situated in the city center near the harbor, but you can also find comfortable rooms on the town's western outskirts. Some parts of the island offer good camping sites, decent alternatives for adventurous outdoorsy types.
