View on Mullafossur and Gasadalur village
Scenic spot
👍👍 Free, about 15 minute drive from the airport, has a beautiful waterfall, a cafe that closes at 4pm, and is a nice, quaint place to check out. There's a good trail that goes from the falls to behind the village and into the village. Worth checking out if you have the time. The tunnel into Gasadalur...

Fiskastykkið // Úti á Gjógv
👍👍 One of the best restaurant on Faroe Islands, if not the best one! It’s really cosy and well design. The food is very delicious. We were there twice. First one for coffee and rhabarub cake and secondly for dinner. We ate fishsoup, which was so tasty.

👍👍 I have been to 83 countries, I ate countless cakes, and the carrot cake is hands down the best cake I ever had in my 29 year old life. Coffee is also great.

Fossá image
Tourist attraction
👍👍 Super scenic spot, I recommend to go above the lower level waterfall and reach the cave behind the upper waterfall. Going up is a bit tricky and requires climbing but it gives you the full experience

Trælanípa image
Tourist attraction
👍 Incredible place, we’ll worth the hike! Standing on the edge of the cliffs is breathtaking. You are permitted to fly your drone here - make sure it’s not too windy the day you go! Also there are many sheep along the way. Only 1 star off for the steep price for the hike though.

Koks Restaurant image
Koks Restaurant
👍👍 Did you ever think what is really out there, behind the end of the world? Well, think Koks. Most of the people I met didn't even know where is Faro Island, then driving to Koks seams even more mysteriously. Parking at the lake, then taken by their restaurant's SUV, driven by one of the chefs on a di...

👍 The restaurant is located in a historical Faroese building, next to a few other fine dining options. The building and its atmosphere pretty great. We ordered 3 course menu. The ingredients are pretty fresh and good. It had quite long waiting time in between dishes, and unfortunately, some of them d...

Fish & Chips Klaksvík
👍👍 Simple but delicious fish and chips, much needed on a cold day in the faroes, especially when every other restaurant is closed. A big relief to have hot food from a friendly owner :) My husband and I ordered an extra large to share and it was just nice. Thank you!

Kallur Lighthouse image
Kallur Lighthouse
Tourist attraction
👍👍 Absolutely stunning!! Not to be missed in the Faroese. The trail is super easy and short, and the views so rewarding. Lots of tourists but there is space for everyone and you can go at your own pace with the different ferry/bus schedules. The ridge might be a bit intimidating with strong winds or if...
