What to see in Torshavn

Torshavn, the charming capital of the Faroe Islands, offers a unique blend of serene natural beauty and rich cultural experiences.

Torshavn’s old town, known as Tinganes, is a delightful maze of narrow alleys and quaint, turf-roofed buildings. Dating back over a thousand years, this historic area was once the centre of the Faroese government and continues to house government offices in beautifully preserved structures. Strolling through Tinganes is like walking through a living museum, where the past and present coexist harmoniously. Adjacent to Tinganes is the harbour, a vibrant area teeming with life. Here, you can watch local fishermen bring in their daily catch or gaze at the array of boats and ships moored in the marina. The harbour area also boasts a variety of cosy cafes and restaurants where you can sample traditional Faroese cuisine, including freshly caught seafood and local delicacies.

Located just a short drive from the heart of Torshavn, the National Museum of the Faroe Islands is an essential visit for anyone interested in understanding the archipelago's history and culture. The museum's exhibitions offer a comprehensive overview of Faroese life, from the Viking age to the present day. Notable displays include traditional Faroese boats, historical artefacts and an extensive collection of Faroese folk costumes, each telling its own story of the island's unique heritage and traditions. The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions, often focusing on contemporary Faroese art and culture.

A short trip from Torshavn will take you to the quaint village of Kirkjubøur, one of the Faroe Islands' most important historical sites. The village is home to the ruins of the Magnus Cathedral, dating back to the 1300s, and the oldest still-inhabited wooden house in Europe, Kirkjubøargarður, which has been occupied by the same family for 17 generations. The village's church, Saint Olav's Church, was built in the early 12th century and is still in use today. Kirkjubøur offers not just historical insight but also stunning views of the surrounding landscapes, including the island of Hestur. The area is ideal for hiking, with several trails offering panoramic views of the dramatic Faroese terrain.
