“A really wonderful place, you can walk all the way, in about 20 minutes. This is an old pier where fishermen used to take their wooden boats out to the sea in the old times. The pier is built by hand.”

“In the small village Hellurnar, you can find seals... not in the village of course, but at the seside ;) Drive trough the village Hellurnar, all the way down to the harbour. There - 100-200 metres away from the harbour - you will finde a cave where the seals live and breed. Last time I was there, we saw two seals swim in and out of the cave. In Hellurnar there lived 13 people in 2015. ”

“The trip to Oyndarfjørður is fantastic. You will drive up and up and up and on the top the view is just fantastic. In Oyndarfjørð you should see "Rinkusteinar". The village of Oyndarfjørður has 180 residents and was effectively completely isolated until 1969, when a paved road was finally completed. Just before the entrance to the village, there is a sign for the pathway to the rocking stones (Rinkusteinar), which are nestled off the side of the road near the inlet where the locals keep their boats. The stones themselves are a few meters from shore. Although they must weigh several tons each, they lightly bob along with the rocking of the sea (or at least one does - the second has been wedged into a permanent position by two stone blocks). Legend has it that an old sorceress cursed two pirate ships that were menacing the village - turning them to stone and condemning them to an eternity of restless rocking, tantalizingly close a forbidden shore. If you go to Oyndarfjørð, you should also visit the small village on the other side of the fjord - Hellurnar. Drive trough the village Hellurnar, all the way down to the harbour. There - 100-200 metres away from the harbour - you will finde a cave where the seals live and breed. Last time I was there, we saw two seals swim in and out of the cave.”

Restaurant
“Elisabeth's restaurant is a nice local restaurant in our neighboring village ´, Viðareiði. It's only open during summer and upon request during winter. It serves Faroese food: lam, fish and birds. If you are not afraid of trying new thin, order the guillemot.”
