Viðareiði

Vidoy is a beautiful island reached by causeway from Bordoy.

It contains the village of Viðareiði, where the road ends, a mountainous cirque standing in the way of reaching the end of the island.

The peninsula here is narrow enough, however, for it to be easily feasible to walk to coasts on each side. One gives a view of Svinoy and Fugloy, reached by ferry from the larger village of Havassund, near the causeway to Bordoy. Here the waves are notable even on a peaceful day. The other side is far more padeful and contains the church, where there is a silver plate donated by the UK Government in the 19th century as thanks for the community's care of British sailors rescued from a wreck.

Viðareiði has a hotel and a restaurant serving meals and drinks.
