Check into our hotel and settle in. When you are ready, put on your hiking boots and head out on an afternoon guided tour. Firstly, you will head out of town to Mannafelsdalur, the site of a bloody Viking battle 700 years ago where mounds of grass still grow with a red hue, said to be the blood of the slain Viking rebels, while in the distance, the NATO radar listening station nestled high above the Faroese landscape reminds us of more modern conflict.

We will soon be greeted by panoramic and truly breathtaking views overlooking Vágoy and Trøllkonufingur and a landscape that would grace a Tolkien legend. Walk over the ridge to an open landscape with lake views at Vatnsdalur and down to Norðadalur, with spectacular views of the islands Hestoy and Koltur, where you will pause for Faroese delicacies and refreshments, before taking a short drive into the capital, Tórshavn.

Walk through the narrow cobbled streets, between traditional wooden houses with grass turf roofs, which date back many hundreds of years. You will also take in the the old fortress, the marina and the peninsular known as Tinganes, where you will walk through the iconic redwood, grass-roofed buidings of some the oldest parliament buidings in the world.

Tórshavn has a lively bar and restaurant scene - your guide can give you recommendations for your evening meals but be sure to reserve a booking at KOKS as early as you can.
