Vioarlundin Park, Torshavn

4.0
#3 of 13 in Parks in Faroe Islands
A bit of green on the otherwise barren Faroes, Vioarlundin Park provides a perfect spot to break from sightseeing. Besides the many flowerbeds with species from all over the world, the park houses statues of notable local figures. Sit on one of the benches near the pond or explore the charming arboretum. Stop in the art gallery on site, which showcases works by the country's contemporary and classical artists. Our Streymoy holiday planner makes visiting Vioarlundin Park and other Streymoy attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Reached from the Centre of Tórshavn to park on the street Varðagøta. The Park is notable for various sculptures and trees, which is a rarity for the Faroe Islands. Fish swims in streams, many ducks. Not far from the entrance in a clearing among massive boulders is the statue of the mythical female Pixie Tariry, the heroine of one of the works of local writer William Hajnesena. In the middle of the Park installed a monument in memory of the Faroese seamen who died during the second world war. Next to the Park is Listasavn Føroya Art Museum and Gallery Listaskalin, there is a coffee shop. Nordic House is also located nearby.

    A walk in this park may be said to belong to visit in Torshavn. Here you will find the Art Museum, the Memorial for the dead sailors under the age of 2. World War II and William Habi Elf girl Tarira. In addition, there are other works of art in the Park. In the middle of the Park, a small pond with benches for a respite.

    We visited Vioarlundin Park whilst visiting Torshavn by cruise ship. Due to their needless and brutal slaughter of whales we had no intention of spending any money at this port. The park was nice to w...  more »

    It's nice to get an arboreal fix after being in the rest of the island. The ponds could do with a clean, but apparently it was a real feat to even get trees established here

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.
