Leirvík to Norðragøta - The old village path – Guided tour

We’ll meet at the church in Leirvík, from where we’ll walk to the archaeological excavations
at Toftanes and Bønhústoft. Then we’ll walk up to the soccer field, where the old village path
starts.
At the top of Leirvíksfjall (the mountain you are crossing) there is a binoculars, where you have a spectacular view over the villages of Leirvík and Gøta, as well as the ocean.

The tour ends in the old village part in Norðragøta, where you’ll get a guided tour at the
Blásastova museum.

NOTE: On Saturdays the trip ends at the Faroese food and handcraft marked, which is
located just beneath the old village and museum in Norðragøta.

Pól Sundskarð

Pól is born in 1957 and grew up in Klaksvík, Faroe Islands. As a youth Pól already showed his skills as a proven sportsman in many different categories. The interest for extreme sport started at a relative late level in his life. In 2015 Pól ran 526 km in 5 days, and the same year he and his wife Bjørg, as the fist couple in the Faroes, climbed all 340 faroese mountains.
