Port of Runavík, the King's Harbour (c) Port of Runavík

Runavik

Port of Runavík, also known as King’s Harbour is situated in the heart of the Faroe Islands. History tells us that the vikings used this harbour because it was the safest harbour in the country and later on it’s been the King of Denmark’s port of choice, whenever visiting.

We offer good reception facilities at the cruise port with tourist information booth and guidance. Restrooms, taxies and free Wi-Fi is provided at the tourist information in the town center. The friendly Ask Me-staff is ready to help guide passengers.

- Our Expedition Cruise Destination:
During the past few years we've developed a safe and sustainable product for expedition ships to the small villages Funningur and Elduvík. By scrolling down to the bottom of our site, you'll find a presentation video of one of our visits.



Port attractions



  1.  Hiking

    A hike around the beautiful lake Toftavatn is very popular all year round. Approximately 4 km from Visit Runavík and back on a good and smooth path. Another popular hike is from the village Lamba to the village Rituvík. It's a 7 km hike and you’ll easily find your way by following the cairns standing one after the other from start to finish.
  2.  Shopping Street

    Here you can buy clothes, books, souvenirs, Faroese handicraft and much more. We recommend you to visit Heimavirkni, Berglon and Visit Runavík.
  3.  Drink and Dine

    A 10 min walk from the port will bring you to the local hotel in town; Hotel Runavík, which has a café and a restaurant. We also recommend Café Cibo and Etika (Sushi Restaurant), which are no further than 500 meters from the port.
