Contents

Get in[edit]

Bus from Klaksvik The car ride from Torshavn is the longest journey possible on the islands without using a ferry and involes several tunnels, including a toll tunel from Eysturoy to Borðoy and two long ones with right of way in one direction (passing places).

Get around[edit]

Walk. The peninsula is narrow enough to enable easy access to the sea on both sides. For strong walkers, there is a fine cirque leading toa ridge to the end of the island.
