4 day package tour suggestion.
Arrival in the Faroes on Thursday. The guide will pick you up at the airport
and drive you to the capital Tórshavn via the scenic mountain road.
Later this evening we will have a night dive off the coast close to the
Tórshavn. You will witness the magical scenery and the beautiful colours
displayed by the rich fauna in the magical night light.
Today we will have two dives combined with sightseeing of the islands. From
Tórshavn, we drive up north passing idyllic villages and the old whaling
station at Áir.
The only bridge over the Atlantic, as it is sometimes called, spans the
narrow channel of Sundini to connect Eysturoy with the larger island of
Streymoy. Because the channel is so narrow, spectacular eddies form at the
base of the bridge when the current is running strong with the tide. Guests
are welcome to walk the short distance over the Atlantic. We pass Eiði
and cross the mountains to Gjógv. On the way, we are treated to a view of
The Giant and The Hag, two very distinctive sea stacks. We also pass the
highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur (882 m). In Gjógv, we
find a gorge (188 m long), which is a natural harbour for fishing boats.
This is where we will have our first dive.
After the dive in Gjógv we will drive to the village of Elduvík. On the way
we will have a light refreshment. On the way we will pass the village of
Funningur where the Vikings first settled on the islands. The dive in
Elduvík is in a gorge with caves.
