City Walk in Tórshavn  at 10:00-13:00

Guided walk though Tórshavn Old Town

Join this walk with our local guide through the old town of Tórshavn, where tradition and modernity live side by side. Tinganes was previously the political and commercial center of the Faroe Islands, and today its charming red buildings still house the offices of the Faroese Prime Minister. Nearby in the narrow streets of Reyn the traditional wooden black houses with grass on the roof have been homes to locals for centuries, and in some of them you can today find restaurants of the finest quality. We end our walk in the lively harbor area in the outskirts of the old town, where you find cozy cafés as well as shops with Faroese design and souvenirs. The tour starts at Visit Tórshavn at 10 am (duration 3 hours).
