Route 70

Route 70

Route 70 is a very scenic and stunning drive that takes you across the dramatic coastline of the Faroe Islands.

The asphalted road is 15.9 km km long. It links the bustling fishing port of Klaksvík, the second-largest town in the Faroe Islands, located in the island of Borðoy, and Viðareiði, one of the most beautiful villages of the Faroe. It’s the northernmost settlement in the islands and lies on the Island of Viðoy.
The road crosses 2 of the Faroese challenging tunnels, one lane tunnels on a two way road where drivers have to be constantly alert and hope that anyone coming through the tunnel on the other side got the message to yield: the Hvannasundstunnilin (2.120m) and the Árnafjarðartunnilin (1.680m).
