Not bad for the Faroe Islands

Quite a small place and a bit of a walk from the centre but we still enjoyed it. Good views for the... read more

I was positively surpriced when we went there. There are many more species to see, than I expected. The kid loved it and specially fishing for crabs and playing in the open aquarium.

Of all the aquariums I've visited in the world this one is the smallest. There's no a big variety of fishes, only few tanks (aquariums) with fishes and crabs caught by local fishermen. But, if you're near The Faroe Islands Aquarium and if weather is nice you can visit and enjoy some time at the beach in Argir, it's located next to the Aquarium.

Took me about 30-40 minutes to walk from Hotel Hafnia. I really like the river that's close by and the beach at the end of it, would have been cool to be able to walk over the beach to the aquarium instead of taking the loop by following the road. The aquarium costs 40kr for an adult and includes around 9-10 small aquariums, two really big ones, one medium and one circle. Cods, crabs and ray fish are most the inhabitants.

Pretty sad aquarium; kinda looks like what would happen if an elementary school bought 15 fish tanks and filled it with stuff he found in the ocean.

But they do have a dope octopus.

We turned up on a day it actually wasn't open, but they were doing some maintenance and let us in anyway. It's a tiny place and it felt a bit like a live fish market! There aren't any brightly coloured tropical fish here - but there are some amazing examples of local species - all caught by local fishermen in the Islands' waters. The sea urchins are fascinating (and brightly coloured!). Stunning photographs around the walls of puffins too. Definitely worth a trip - we spent just under an hour here and found it to be a cool - if a little bizarre - break in our day!
