The SpaceVery quiet romantic little village, with about 17 small lakes running down the hillside straight in to the Atlantic Ocean. The beach in Tjørnuvík is one of the very few beaches in The Faroe Islands, Depending the weather, it can be very dramatic and wild. Guest AccessVerdens flotteste natur, et færøsk hus, restaureret i gammel stil, i en naturskøn bygd med søde mennesker. De nærmeste butikker ligger ca. 20 min i bil (ved broen mellem Eysturoy/Streymoy) bygden hedder Norðskála, det er smart at shoppe på vej til Tjørnuvík. På den en side er der en tankstation og på den anden er der 2 supermarkeder, en isenkræmmer og en lille butik der sælger øl (ikke spiritus og vin, den har begrænsede åbningstider). Interaction with GuestsSå meget som gæsterne ønsker, vi bor i Tórshavn og hvis de har brug hjælp eller har spørgsmål om lokale forhold m.m. er vi altid klar at hjælpe eller bare komme med gode råd :-) Der er omkring en times tid med bil fra Tórshavn til Tjørnuvík og det samme fra lufthavnen. The NeighborhoodFantastic, sweet and friendly neighbours. Hans Esbern and Randi are the best 3 Getting AroundThere is public transport to Tjørnuvík by bus, but I will command you to rent a car.

The SpaceOur traditional Faroese house - built in 1870 (almost 150 years ;) but newly renovated - is the ideal place for a get-away. The first interesting quality you will notice is the grass roof, a feature common to old Faroese houses. Once inside, you appreciate the spacious kitchen and cosy living room; all embraced by characteristic wooden walls. The house has a double bedroom on the ground floor and two separate loft areas with several mattresses for sleeping spaces. One of the lofts is mainly ment for children. It is the loft that sleeps two. Outside there is a charming terrace with a wooden hot tub, powered by a fire. And finally a bathroom with a shower. The house is equipped with brand new furniture and facilities, including a large smart-tv and wifi. The oven, the fridge and freezer is from 2016. The mattresses on the loft is also from 2016. The rest of the furniture is from 2015. The open loft above the kitchen - accessible with a ladder - has a double mattress and is suitable for two people (children or younger adults), while the larger loft space can accommodate up to 5 people, although we recommend a maximum of 3-4. A curtain can be drawn to separate the larger loft into two sections. It is accessible by narrow and steep stairs. Guest AccessYou will have access to the entire house; i.e. the living room, kitchen, bathroom, loft, cellar (not much;) and outside terrace. NOTE! - We provide bedding for DKK100 pr. pers. (Towels & sheets). This is not included, because you can be up to 9 people, and 9 people requires a lot more bedding than one person;) - We provide firewood for the hottub for DKK300 for the first heating. The following heatings cost DKK200. We will fill the tub with clean water and chlorine tablets, so it is ready to heat when you arrive. Please let us know, if you want to use the hot tub, so we are sure it is ready for you. And we will also send you instructions for the heating process. Interaction with GuestsWe will be happy to help you with ideas for which places you should visit, when you are here in the Faroe Islands. There are many excursions close to Eiði. Please start with our Guidbook here on Airbnb. The NeighborhoodThe house is located in the center of the small village Eiði. About 600 people live here. I will definitely recommend a trip around the lake that is located in the village. By the lake there is a new football field (from 2015) and a campsite. Over the summer they say that 200 swans visit the lake on their way to Iceland - not at the same time though. If you have some left over bread, bring it to the swans and the other birds. In the village there is a small shop where you can buy everything you need. If you require a larger selection you will find a big supermarket a 10 min. drive away. The drive to Tórshavn, Klaksvík and the airport are all around 50 minutes. You will find many beautiful small villages nearby. Gjógv is a must-see. In Gjógv you can dine out in the local hostel Gjáargarður. (Not all year round though - call and hear them). Other must-see villages and scenery are Oyndarfjørður, Saksun and Tjørnuvík. Getting AroundThere is public transport to Eiði, but it is not too good and not during the weekend. I recommend bringing your own car or renting one. I have some phonenumbers where you can rent a car fairly cheep. Just ask ;) You can park for free on the road by the house. >>>> NOTE BEFORE YOU GO HIKING IN THE FAROESE MOUNTAINS When hiking always bring a fully charged mobile, good clothes (regular rainwear is not always good because you can more easily slide in it in the steep mountains), hiking shoes, and a GPS, the fog can come when you least expect it. Allways tell others where you are going. Check the weather forecast before the hike. Try to get as much information as possible about the area you are hiking in case of emergency it is important to know where you are located. When it's raining (or just have been raining) everything gets more slippery, it's hard to stop again if you fall. Don't take any chances. The helicopter can't come if there is too much fog. If you are not sure about how to summit a mountain, or how to get to some places, rent a local guide, it's not worth risking your life for a hike. When surrounded by fog: STOP and sit it out until the fog has lifted so you can see clearly where you are going - and not accidentally stumble into the afterlife. Other Things to NoteABOUT THE HOT TUB You are welcome to use the hot tub, but it is not free, but please note, that it will take you about 4-7 hours to heat it. It is wonderful once it is warm, but some guests feel it takes too long time to heat. It is unfortunately not free to use the hot tub, because it is a lot of work to clean and make ready to use. So the price is: The first heating: DKK300 The following heatings: DKK200 There are two ways to heat the hot tub. The easy-way and the not-so-easy-way. If you want to use the hot tub, please let us know, and I will send you instructions. The hot tub is especially enjoyable in the late evenings, regardless of the weather. HIKES There are many beautiful nature trips in proximity to Eiði which we can recommend: - A trip up to Kollurin where the ice from the ice age has set its marks and where ruins from the 2'nd world war remain. Once at the summit of Kollur, you will have an astonishing view of the giant and the witch, which legend says turned into stone at sunrise as they were trying to drag the Faroes to Iceland. This trip is not recommended for small children due to the dangers when you are on top of it. But If your children listen to you, you can take them up to Kollurin:) - I can highly recommend a trip up to Slættaratind, the tallest mountain in the Faroe Islands. Put on a good pair of walking shoes, bring a bag with bread, a chocolate bar and some coffee, and embark on your walk up to Slættaratind. The hike to the summit takes around 1 to 1.5 hours from the carpark - depending on your shape, and the round-trip 3 hours in total. As long as you follow proper guidelines the trip is suitable for inexperienced hikers. Please note, that Slættaratindur is not always accessible during the winter or if it is very cold/snow or very wet, because it gets slippery. - In and near Eiði there are lots of places for you to train your fishing skills ;) It is free to fish on the sea, on the lake in the village and the bigger lake near Slættartind - 10 min. drive from the village.
