    The Aquarium has two rooms and one can see the whole place in less than 15 minutes. It's fun for kids but also for adults if you do not have such great expectations. It is best with this attraction is the area which offers magnificent views of the sea. The entrance is 40 DKK for adults, and I think they take a small fee for children. Information on Faroese and sometimes in Danish and English (fisherman's name).

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.
