As Sandoy is approached from Streymoy, there are views of a tiny island to the west of Sandoy. This island, Trøllhøvdi belongs to Kirkjubøur and is used for stock grazing.


Get in[edit]

Take the ferry from Gamlarætt on Streymoy to Skopun. In order to get to Gamlarætt you can take a bus from Tórshavn to Gamlarætt ferry port. The trip with the ferry takes around half an hour.
