Get around[edit]

By bus[edit]

Busses connect Klaksvik with Viðareiði.

By car[edit]

The car ride from Torshavn to Viðareiði is the longest journey possible on the islands without using a ferry and involves several tunnels, including a toll tunnel from Eysturoy to Borðoy and two long ones with right of way in one direction (passing places).

See[edit]

  • Moorings on both sides of Viðareiði - what a contrast! On one side, where the church is, the Atlantic is placid; on the other it's like - the Atlantic!
  • Viðareiði Church - although this is similar to most other churches on the islands, it's worth seeing for its silver, which includes a salver presented by the British Government for help to sailors rescued from a wreck in the mid 19th century

Do[edit]

Eat[edit]

Unusually for the Faroes' villages, there are actually two places to eat or drink (coffee is very reasonably priced at both, alcohol at neither!)

  • Hotel Norð.
