New connections to Klaksvik open it up for more calls

The building of tunnels to connect Klaksvik to its neighbouring islands in the Faroes is expanding its shore excursion offering, for example passengers can be hiking in the mountains within a 10 minute drive.

Theresa Kreutzmann, managing director Visit Nordoy, says: “The infrastructure is changing completely because tunnels are opening this year, connecting the islands, so it will be easier to get around. One tunnel is open in the north already and the end of year there will be another. This is connecting the island in a new and modern way.”

The 320m quay can accommodate every size of ship in all weathers due to its sheltered location. There are possibilities in the town centre for the smaller and expedition ships to come alongside. Six calls are expected this year and the aim is to rebuild these numbers to nearer the 20 that came in the past.

A new tourism strategy has been put in place which includes, for example, home dining and private concerts. In addition a small terminal, containing a tourist information office, will be built alongside the larger quay.
