Tvoroyri, Faroe Islands Cruise Port

The Faroe Islands are part of a gorgeous archipelago that rests in the heart of the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic that has long been a fantastic place for cruisers to enjoy a rugged seaside adventure. With over 687 miles of coastline to explore, The Faroe islands are a paradise for shore trawlers, especially since you are never more than a few miles away from the ocean. Tvoroyri is no exception, offering stunning views, a picturesque township, and an abundance of wildlife to discover.

Tvoroyri rests on the east coast of Suouroy, just north of a majestic fjord, and only 2 hours ferry away from the township of Torshavn. Rolling craggy slopes provide an amazing backdrop to the quaint township itself, which is scattered throughout the hills in the form of bright pastel coloured houses, rustic harbours, and striking rock formations. Although diminutive in size, the intimate atmosphere of the village belies rare opportunities to explore one of the most spectacular northern landscapes on earth.

Sightseeing in Tvoroyri

Hvannhagi

A remarkable hiking experience awaits cruisers who set out north east from Tvoroyri. Whether you choose to reach Hvannhagi by foot or by chartering a private boat to weave your way up the shoreline, this remarkable hiking spot is worth the trip. A secluded valley, Hvannhagi is an idyllic place in which to enjoy the splendour of the Faroe Islands. With high mountains framing a lush valley, as well as an azure crystal clear lake to explore, this is one of the finest, yet underrated scenic spots in the whole of the Faroe Islands. Make sure to get a good look at the breath-taking view toward the small island of Litli Dimun from the step mountainside trail.

Gallery Oyggin

Situated on the main street in Tvoroyri, this beautiful collection of watercolours and sculptures is owned by a local, Palle Julsgart, who is a prosperous artist himself. Many of his sculptures fill the lush gardens that surround the gallery as well as the spacious plaza opposite. A great deal of the artwork on display has been made by guest contributors from all over the Faroe Islands, making it a priority stop if you want to delve into the culture of this incredible archipelago.

Museum of Tvoroyri

This museum may seem to be merely another one of the postcard perfect wooden houses that line village's slopes, with an unassuming brown varnish adorning its walls, and one of the famous grassy roofs insulating it against the climes of winter. But step inside and you'll find a fascinating cornucopia of historical maritime items, such as naval regalia, ship anchors, and fishing harpoons.

Shopping in Tvoroyri

Form both the Museum of Tvoroyri, and the Gallery Oyggin, cruiser can purchase a number of unique souvenirs that are consistent with the town's quirky maritime aesthetic, including postcards, hand carved wooden miniatures, and even locally made Danish flags and scarves.
