In the footsteps of the vikings
Venture to a place where forgotten histories lie buried in secrets, harbored in ancient monuments and etched into the breath of folklore. To the small municipality known as Eysturkommuna on the Faroe Islands of the North Atlantic Ocean.
A land steeped in Viking conquest, where tales of mighty warriors and mythical gods have been passed down through generations and still hold an honored place in local culture today. Here one can explore traditional architecture left largely unchanged for centuries, with quaint wooden cottages painted red looming between verdant green moss-covered hillsides, topped with triangular roofs tousled by salty sea-breezes.
Eysturland entices visitors from far and wide seeking to experience its stunning scenery and unique cultural heritage – allowing adventurers a chance to get lost inside a piece of living history worth discovering!
