The island of Eysturoy

Hospitality has always been second nature to the Faroe Islanders so it is a matter of course that hospitality is found on the island of Eysturoy, where the past and the future go hand in hand, "Without a past - there is no future!"

Eysturoy is the second largest island in Faroes at 268 square kilometres and has a population of 10,000 inhabitants. It is connected to the island of Streymoy by a bridge. The island of Eysturoy is in the center of the Faroes, from where you can reach all parts of the country with bus or ferry.

The island offers a wide range of attractions for visitors in the form of stunning landscapes, quaint peaceful villages, historical sites, and modern well-functioning towns.

The landscape in the southern region is rather flat and smooth; and the terrain around the idyllic Toftir Lake (Toftavatn) on the east coast of the fjord, Skálafjørður, is a splendid choice for an outing. The heather covered hillsides surrounding the lake are considered unique in the Faroe Islands.

Compared to the southern coast of Eysturoy the region up north is both steep and high. The highest mountains in the Faroes, as well as a number of steep headlands, high vertical sea cliffs, narrow clefts, and green fertile valleys are to be found in this area. Visitors in this part of Eysturoy will be rewarded with numerous breath-taking views.

Accommodation is possible in almost every town and village in the island, ranging from 3-star hotels to guesthouses, youth hostels, and camping sites. Good restaurants and cafeterias are scattered all over the island. - In Eysturoy every lover of nature will easily fall in love - not only with the natural beauty of the island - but also with the nature of its people.

Eysturoy Tourist Association welcomes you!
