This classic program offers the opportunity to combine time in two of the North Atlantic's major islands, with time over to add a side trip to Greenland if you want! Fly between Reykjavik and the Faroes, and enjoy time to explore each country's unique charms.
Day 1, Monday: Arrive in Keflavik and transfer to the domestic airport in Reykjavik for the onward flight to Vagar. Upon arrival, you will pick up your car from the AVIS desk and overnight at the Vagar Hotel. The afternoon will be free to explore this lovely part of the Faroes, or simply relax at the hotel
Day 2, Tuesday: After breakfast, drive to the island of Stremoy which you will cross before heading across the Bridge over The Atlantic, the bridge that joins the islands of Stremoy and Eysturoy. Your accommodation tonight, is at the gorgeous Gjaargardur Guesthouse, in the picturesque community of Gjogv (pronounced "Joff")
Days 3-4, Wednesday and Thursday: The next two days will be yours to explore the islands; head north past Klaksvik to the rugged headlands at Vidareidi, visit the old church at Kirkjuboreyn, wander through the old centre of Torshavn and enjoy the atmosphere of these unique islands.
