Taxi available?

by dwelsh

Looking to hire a taxi for a tour in Torvshavn Site would be appreciated

Re: Taxi available?

by travelfrosch

Your best bet would most likely be to contact the Tórshavn tourist office, email torsinfotorshavn.fo, telephone +298 30 24 25, website http://www.visittorshavn.fo/UK/. They should be able to get you in touch with a taxi service and/or tour guide for hire. The Faroese bus system is cheap and fairly reliable, so also take a look at the bus timetables, http://www.ssl.fo, to see if they might work for you as well.

Sorry, there was a typo in my original reply. The tourist office's email should be torsinfo@torshavn.fo.

Travel Tips for Tórshavn

Car License Plates

by MikeAtSea

Somehow the Faroe's are part of Denmark, but then again they are not. Hence the cars that are licenses on the Faroe Islands have their own license plates. License plate of the Faroe Islands as issued after 1996. It has the nation code FO, the Flag of the Faroes, and a number consisting normally of two letters followed by three numbers.

get out into the landscape

by globetrott

Get out into the landscape, watch the birds - like the puffins here Get the best out of the rough weather here on the Faroe Islands and be happy for every tiny moment of sunshine...

... and be prepared to have heavy waves on your way forward to Iceland

Monday to Friday 10.00 - 18.00 and Saturday from 10.00 - 14.00

What about the Puffin

by gordonilla

I had read several items and articles about how popular puffin is on menus in restauarants and hotels. I have to say, that this did not seem to be the case. I did not encounter the word "puffin" on any menu.

It seems that due to many different reasons puffins were no longer easily found by residents or visitors. I asked one hotel receptionist about this - I was told that there had been some legislation which meant that the islanders had to buy puffin from Iceland. However the Icelandic government had also passed legislation regarding the export of this product. In addition, I understand that due to very violent and severe storms in early 2008, the breeding grounds had been damaged possibly beyond recovery.

I was keen to try the bird if I could find it on the menu. Sadly this was not to be the case!

Viðarlundin Park

by travelfrosch

This pleasant park is about a 10-minute walk north of the harbor on R.C. Eversøes Gøta. You'll see trees and a stone entranceway to your left before you reach the soccer stadium. Wander around and enjoy the trees, a few flowers, a nice flowing stream, a statue, and a good amount of bird life. Check the website below to see what type of birds and animals have been seen around the park lately. We only saw mallards, but it was still quite pleasant.
