Cruises from Runavik
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. Read more
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).
