Had an amazing day on this island. We took the ferry sam from klasvik across to kalsoy. The crossing was around 20 minutes and cost around £20. Once across the water there is a mini bus for walkers but we had a hire car so didn't need to use this very useful service. Our main area to explore was Mikladalur,... More

To get to this place, you have to take the ferry from Klaksvik. It takes about 20 minutes. You need the entire day to enjoy this Islands if you want to stop and spend some time at each valley. With that said, the main attraction is to drive to the end of the road, and walk about 20 minutes to... More

Me and my partner went to the light house at the northern part. It was the most beautiful place in the world! We just stood there speech less looking at the giant cliff. Please go here!

This island should be relatively easy to get to. The ferry is only 20 minutes long. You can bring your car (sometimes). The car ferry is often commandeered by other islands which means you take the passenger boat. A bus meets you to take you to Trollanes. You can hike to the Kallur Lighthouse (see my separate posting), view the... More

Kalsoy was the smallest island I had the pleasure to visit in the Faroes. We drove through stopping in each valley, including one with no village that's only for sheep! Had fun visiting the small kiosk on Trøllanes and of course the magnificent cliffs and lighthouse at Kallur at the very tip!

The island Kalsoy was the place on magnificent Faroe Islands I liked the most. The long and narrow island is sometimes called “the flute”, because of the four tunnels which drill thru the mountains and connect the ferry terminal in Syðradalur on the south, with the village Trøllanes on the north edge. I recommend making a half day trip to... More
