Viðareiði is a village in Vidoy in the northern Faroe Islands.

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.

See[edit][add listing]

  • Moorings on both sides - what a contrast! On one side, where the church is, the Atlantic is placid; on the other it's like - the Atlantic!
  • The Church - although this is similar to most other churches on the islands, it's worth seeing for its silver, which includes a salver presented by the British Government for help to sailors rescued from a wreck in the mid 19th century
