  • 20 minutes by boat from the capital and you'll be in this small but idyllic island. The town is lovely, although very small. For children there is a football pitch and a playground, and a small beach. Large can cross the island and visit the lighthouse on the other side. Even if you are not coming down (half gets quite steep) you will enjoy a spectacular view over the Islands.

  • @ The excursion on the island Nólsoy ferry is highly recommended. @ The harbour village is lovely. @ Beautiful walks or a larger hike is possible. @ We saw many barn swallows. It has two small restaurants and a small village shop. @ The ferry 80 crowns cost for two people back and forth, it took less than 30 minutes.

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.
