  • The ferry to nolsoy goes from Torshavn. It goes from the dock to the right of the terminal building. Car can be parked to the right of the Terminal, 8 hourly parking. Tickets purchased on board when you step on and apply to return. On nolsoy are business and some cafes. A small sleepy village. To the right as you come off the ferry to get to the hiking trail that goes to the lighthouse. Follow the road past some old building foundations and up to the pump house. From the pump casing follow the voice selection. The path goes steeply uphill but is then quite flat all the way to the lighthouse. It was a pretty boring hike that took an hour and a half each way. The lighthouse was not good as I thought. When you come up with is the right of the houses. The walk is at times quite soggy so waterproof shoes are needed. It is an easy walk but it was not the nicest on the island. Down in the village, we had coffee at a small café on the street at the election Ben's port. Cosy and there were both coffee and lunch

  • Great Island/village, which is worth a visit. A place where you can really get the batteries up. Here is a calm, which is found in many places in the Faroe Islands. The village comes to a certain ferry, which is rising in Tórshavn.
