AUBBQ: Faroese BBQ Break / 4 days
Departures from Torshavn

NEW for 2017! Great short break to the lovely island of Sandoy. You will have time to explore this quaint island society and also enjoy an evening preparing your own BBQ in a specially designed BBQ Hut at Hotel Skalavik.

Sandoy Island

The island of Sandoy, located only about 30 minutes with ferry from south of Streymoy, is wonderful 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 dramatic 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. 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.

Explore this green gem on a short break which includes car rental, accommodation at Hotel Skalavik and an evening where you can prepare your own BBQ in one of the hotel's atmospheric wooden huts.
