Faroe Islands; Day 3 – Streymoy (& Eysturoy & Vagar)

Saksun

On day 3 it was sunny sunny sun sun sun. We decided to drive around some of the towns on Eysturoy, following the buttercup routes that we didn’t do on day 1. We then drove to Streymoy an visited some of the towns on there, including Saksun (above).

Saksun has 8 people living there, and one of them is clearly annoyed by the number of tourists visiting – around the church there were signs saying that if you trespassed he would phone the police.

Sørvágsvatn

After visiting the two main islands, given the nice weather, we decided to do the walk to Sørvágsvatn. Which is another walk you have to pay to do. The temperature on this day was 20 degrees, and kB got a little bit sun burnt – even though he had suntan creme on.

Driving around the Faroe Islands is really lovely, there isn’t much traffic at all and the roads are in really good repair. The only problem (and I use that term loosly) is that everything is so spaced out!

As much as a lot more people are vising the Faroe Islands, it still isn’t busy by any stretch of the imagination.

Buttercup routes are the more scenic routes on the Faroe Islands. They are labelled with a little buttercup so you know where they are when you are driving along.

Fossa

Due to a lack of water, the waterfall wasn’t at it’s peak!

Sunset

But it was also the only day where we got to see the sun actually set, so that was nice!
