Port information

(c) Gøtuvík


The harbour of Gøtuvík is a beautiful natural harbour, which has never had a cruise ship, nor a bigger vessel, in port ever before. Because of the wide bay this is a natural choise for anchorage, and will exclusively be marketed as a such. There are two good quays for dinghies to enter and it´s relatively easy to get from the dighies and ashore.
There is no current in the bay and the tide has a maximum of 1 m. under normal curcumstances.

We are planning on Gøtuvík to be an Expedition Cruise Destination, as we have some beautiful villages in fantastic landscape to show our gestus. Furthermore the locals are very interested in showing their village, their home, their food, their home-knitted products and their cows and sheep to guests visiting. We are thinking of this as a sustainabe way of tourism, where some lucky guests can visits into the hears of the locals, while the locals get money, warmth and experience in return.
