See & Do

Sandoy has a lot of exciting tours and activities to offer our guests

The island of Sandoy, located only about 30 minutes with ferry from south of Streymoy, is very special with its beautiful nature, cosy villages and historic places. Sandoy is the fifth largest island in the Faroe Islands and, along with Suðuroy, makes up the large southern island pair in the archipelago. Sandoy is considered the flattest island, with broad valleys and many little lakes, low rounded mountains and sandy beaches. The gently rolling mountains make it appear greener than the other islands with their more rugged craggy mountains. The island’s western coast is steeper and has bird cliffs.

You can for instance visit Húsavík, a little village dating back to the Viking ages, it has two old quarters with many traditional Faroese houses. And in the village Sandur you can visit the lovely art museum with a fine collection of modern Faroese art. Sandoy does also have one of the best beaches in the country. A large and beautiful sandy beach defines the village of Sandur, named after the beach.

Sandoy also has a lot of interesting and exciting excursions to offer. The tourist office on Sandoy is located in the village Sandur and they provide guidance to travelers and arrange guided tours like boat tours to the bird cliffs of Sandoy and Skúvoy and fishing and hiking trips. Please visit the homepage of the Tourist Information Center in Sandoy for more information here

It is always possible to book a guide at the Information Centre, so if you want to experience something special or you want to climb a mountain, it is both wise and exciting to have a local to guide you.
