Suðuroy – The Untouched Pearl
DKK 1.995,- | EUR 270,-
Just two hours from Torshavn, Suðuroy is a place often overlooked by visitors short on time, and yet, it remains one of the most alluring islands in the archipelago. On the way with the ferry, you will be sailing past the islands of Sandoy, Stóri Dímun (with two families living on it), and the uninhabited Lítli Dímun.
Isolated in the south, Suðuroy bears the full brunt of the ferocious Atlantic weather; blustery winds, freak storms and raging swells are not uncommon.
Wild weather aside, with a sheer cliff line shaved along the island’s western face, you can expect dramatic views and hiking trails, while eastern shore offers up spectacular coastal drives as you hop from one seaside village to the next.
From the ferry dock at Tvøroyri, driving through the charming village of Tvøroyri, you will be heading to the most beautiful and panoramic village of the Faroes, Hvalba.
Scenic routes will be the norm as you head further north to Sandvík, a remote and in every way idyllic village, before winding your way south toward the colourful gingerbread village of Sumba, the southern-most village in the Faroe Islands, and continue onwards to Akraberg Lighthouse overlooking the boundless Atlantic Ocean. On the way you will see Fámjin, where the old church holds the original Faroese flag "Merkið".
Returning, we might skip the tunnel and take the snaking road over the pass. At the top, the near vertical scramble up Beinisvørð will reward you with unparalleled views across the majestic folds of the island, but prepare to be lashed by wind, as this exposed point gets battered by the full fury of the Atlantic.
Suðuroy's most impressive natural features are stunning cliffs, scenic and historic villages, ruged cliffs, protected lakes, walls of rock, zigzagging roads higher into the mountains and wave-battered sea stacks, perfect for bird-life.
Heading back with the ferry Smyril, please note some waiting time is to be expected for the ferry.
Grab a bear onboard the ferry and head for the deck for stunning views during most of the route.
