Port information

Port of Torshavn (c) Port of Torshavn


Tórshavn, set amid the clear waters of the North Atlantic, is one of the world’s smallest Capitals. What Tórshavn lacks in size, it more than makes up for by the warmth of its welcome!
The city has 20.000 inhabitants and is situated on the island of Streymoy, which is the largest island in the Faroes – located centrally in the archipelago. This makes the port ideal for excursions to all corners of the Faroes. The history of Tórshavn dates back more than one thousand years. Much of the earliest historical timber-built houses with turf roof in Tórshavn date back to the 15-16th century.
Tórshavn has a rich and colorful history as a port community with strong traditions of serving the fishing industry. Today Tórshavn is the centre of all commercial and cruise traffic in the Faroe Islands.
Tórshavn blends the historical and picturesque with all the features of a modern city. The visitor will experience quality restaurants, interesting museums, exhibitions, and, excellent shopping.
