Suðuroy is the southernmost island of the Faroes and probably the most unique one as well. The inhabitants of Suðuroy are known for being more easy-going than the rest of the Faroese as well as for having a very distinctive dialect.
The ferry Smyril is the main connection between Suðuroy and the mainland and the trip is an experience on its own. On your trip with the ferry, you can see one-third of all of the islands of the Faroes and experience the different landscapes by sea. When you reach your destination, you will arrive in the stunning fjord “Trongisvágsfjørður”.
What distinguishes Suðuroy from the rest of the Faroe Islands is the easily accessible nature. On a drive around the island, you will see significant changes in the landscapes, and it is effortless to get to some of the most stunning nature you’ll see in all of the Faroes.
We have stunning fjords and tall mountains. The east-side embraces while the west-side horrifies; the mildest and severest nature you can experience in the Faroe Islands. Enjoy the fjords and the sight towards and of the cliffs from Sandvík to Akraberg.
Whether you’re driving, cycling or walking, interested in birdwatching, in geology, meeting interesting people, in culture and history, or just generally interested in traveling, Suðuroy is at your feet.
