Runavik is a village in the Danish archipelago of Faroe Islands, which lie midway between Norway and Iceland in the North Atlantic, and 320km NNW of Scotland. Modern Runavik port, on the island Eysturoy, was founded in 1916 and used by fishing boats. In past eras it was a Viking port. It now accommodates cruise ships at Kongshavn (Kings Harbour), and is a supply base for the North Sea oil industry. Runavik faces Skálafjørður (Skala Fjord), and current construction is underway to link it to the capital Tórshavn via an 11.24km undersea tunnel (Eysturoyartunnilin, the longest sub-sea road tunnel in the world).

The scattered houses in Runvik line the fjord for 250m, and rise inland to low hills covered in grasses and mosses. A short walk south of the port is Lake Toftavatn, surrounded by a unique heather area. Between the lake and the fjord is Faroe Island’s first international football stadium. Interestingly, for a village of 4000, it maintains three football fields. A 5km walk north and east of Runavik takes you to the village of Lamba – just follow the cairns. There’s a shuttle bus that skirts the fjord, so use it to get to Glyvrar and the museum Forni.

Runavik is actually a conurbation of 14 settlements along the east bank of Skálafjørðu. As the gateway to this second largest island in the Foroes, it offers tours of the island and its many sights. Among those is the Slættaratindur, which, at 882m in height is the highest peak in the archipelago. If travelling, prepare for fast weather changes – it is “The Land of Maybe”. Of interest: English is widely spoken; Faroese currency is interchangeable with Danish currency; and local souvenirs are woollen goods, stuffed birds, ceramics, wood articles, jewellery, music, stamps and posters. And tipping is not the custom.
