Streymoy Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see



Streymoy is the largest of the Færoe Islands and includes the capital, Torshavn. [q.v.]

 There are numerous places of interest and/or beauty. Kirkjubour is a most interesting place with a ruin of a cathedral, St Magnus, that was never finished and a church, St Olaf's, that goes back to the 12th century - though not the present building.

 At the north of the island there are roads to Tjornuvik, a delectable village with fabulous views of sea stacks off the north of the neighbouring island of Eysturoy and to Saksun, with a good museum and a lagoon formed by the sea.

To the west, Kvivic is an idyllic village with a heart breaking memorial in the churchyard to the crew of a wrecked boat. Further along the road Vestmanna is the base for wonderful boat trips to see stacks, arches, caves and a terrific variety of seabirds.
