Unique village holiday - Skálavík

Hotel Skálavík is a modern 3-star hotel situated in one of the most beautiful places in the Faroe Islands

The island of Sandoy, located only about 30 minutes with ferry from south of Streymoy, is very special with its beautiful nature, cosy villages and historic places. Sandoy is the fifth largest island in the Faroes and, along with Suðuroy, makes up the large southern island pair in the archipelago. Sandoy is considered the flattest island, with broad valleys and many little lakes, low rounded mountains and sandy beaches. The gently rolling mountains make it appear greener than the other islands with their more rugged craggy mountains. The island’s western coast is steeper and has bird cliffs.


Sandoy does also have one of the best beaches in the country. A large and beautiful sandy beach defines the village of Sandur, named after the beach. The big sand dunes are the perfect spot for an evening picnic after a good hike or fishing trip around the island. In the village, the art gallery is one of the main attractions. Sands Listasavn as the gallery is named, was given to the village from a private art collector and the collection includes many of the best Faroese artists, including Mykines, William Heinesen and Ingálvur av Reyni. On the eastern side of Sandoy, the villages Skálavík, Húsavík and Dalur offer great scenery and an open view out to the harsh sea.


Sandoy also has a lot of interesting excursions to offer. The tourist office on Sandoy is located in the village Sandur and they provide guidance to travelers and arrange guided tours like boat tours to the bird cliffs of Sandoy and Skúvoy and fishing and hiking trips. Please visit the the homepage of the Tourist Information Center in Sandoy for more information here
