Our walk around Tinganes with Kemm Poulsen, an excellent guide, was fascinating. It was quite moving to see the old chiefs' 'signatures' in the rocks
This review is about Torshavn and Faroe Island that we did not get to see, and share with you our experience. We went on a Transatlantic Cruise on the Caribbean Princess in Aug-Sep 2013. Because of poor weather condition in the North Seas while we docked in Bergen, Norway, the captain decided to skip the ports of call in Lerwick,... More
I always tell my friends: Iceland has 2 sisters - Greenland and the Faroe Islands - and all 3 are equally beautiful! I have visited 44 countries so far, and (together with my other favourite - Greenland) the Faroe Islands is easily the best! The most striking part will be their scenery...but I also love their food, the people and... More
Great place to stop for a coffee and a pastry, talk to local fisherman, absorb the history of this wonderful place and just get lost in the history that surrounds you. It's the social center of town and not to be missed. The Faroe Islands are overwhelming and we are going back again very soon. Love the people and love... More
First of all if you have not visited the Faroe Islands you must go. The geography is simply astounding. I dont have sufficient descriptive powers to do it justice. The cliffs sweep to the sea the inlets are astonishing. Its one of those places in which you want to photograph everything but know the pictures will not do justice to... More
Very easy to find, this area can keep you busy for hours as you wind among the small homes. Beautiful church right next door and wharf close by. Don't miss it!
Our visit to Tinganes in Torshavn was fantastic, I think we took a quick walk through there at least 3 or 4 times during our visit. It's just such a beautiful place. I went with a friend who'd lived in Torshavn for a while, who could tell stories about some of the rocks, streetnames and buildings. It's difficult for me... More
This is a must see. I can recommend a visit to the old church at the hill at the entrence of Tinganes. Absolutly charming.
Loved this quaint little town, reportedly the smallest capital in the world. The town has a laid back old world charm, it was fun just wandering around the small sod roof buildings, many of which are government offices. The harbor front reminded me of Bergen & Copenhagen, though scaled down, the Faroese extremely friendly, wanting to tell the visitors all... More
I loved all the grass roofs here, the laid back and lovely red government buildings with the private homes that form the old town behind. A friendly little cat even came over to say hello as we looked around! This is definitely a different kind of capital, as suits the Faroese. :)
