The old cemetery, at the corner of Dalavegur and D R Jakobsens Gøta, is a very interesting place to stroll. While our guidebook described it as "spooky," we found it quite peaceful, especially with the flowers in bloom. A local cat (Bustopher Jones in White Spats?) even joined us for a bit, undoubtedly on the way to lunch at the tomb on cabbage, rice pudding, and mutton.
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.
When looking for free e-mail checking in Torshavn go to a Coffee and souvenir/clothing shop in the city centre. It is next to the postoffice, in front of the small shop is a parking place. You can enjoy a good coffee there, a nice chat with the staff and check e-mail for free!! The shop has lots of genuine Faroese handicrafts also.
Kirkbøur is the place for the historically interested on the Faroe Islands. Not that it's of the beaten path: Almost everyone that visit the Islands come here, but it's some four hours walking from Tórshavn.
Kong Siggurd (of Norway) was here, and used the cathedral. The cathedral is now only a ruin, but you still get a feel of the place. You can also visit the wooden church here and perhaps the other houses belonging to the family who has lived here for generations.
It takes four hours to walk from Kirkbøur to Tórshavn. It's a nice walk and easy walk, but bring something to keep the wind away from your body.
