“Suðuroy” For a Day Trip To Beinisvørð

  This morning we headed out for our 10:00am Ferry from Tórshavn to Tvøroyri. For a group size of 10 or more, we recommend booking ahead of time (at least 2 weeks) by emailing bilegging@ssl.fo for an inquiry.  Because we had 7 folks in 2 cars, we booked online on...
