Tórshavn to Kirkjubøur

The route starts at Kirkjubøarvegur, við Sandá 11 in Havnardalur. After passing the gate follow the path - there are cairns all along the path.

Along the path you will also pass Reynsmúlalág, which in the past time was as an open air meeting place for more than 120 years.

The lovely little village Kirkjubøur is the southernmost village on Streymoy and the countrys most important historical site, famous for the ruins of the medieval Magnus Cathedral from around 1300 and the Saint Olavs Church from the 12th century, the oldest church in the Faroes still in use.
