From Thorshavn, take a 50-minute drive to the north, past idyllic villages and the old whaling station at Áir. Here, you’ll find the only bridge over the Atlantic connecting Eysturoy with the larger island of Streymoy. Because its channel is so narrow, spectacular eddies form at the base of the bridge when the current is running strongly with the tide. Next, pass Eiði and cross the mountains to Gjógv. On the way, see the Giant and the Hag, two very distinctive sea stacks that your imagination will have fun with.


You'll also pass the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, Slættaratindur (2,983 feet). See the rather handy Gjógv Gorge; which at 616 feet long provides a marvelous natural harbor for the local fishing fleet to shelter in. Stop in the village of Gjógv, at the local guesthouse, to enjoy some refreshments. Lastly, your ride back to Thorshavn is via the mountain road and you’ll stop at the viewpoint overlooking the capital.
