Beautifully situated in the old part of the city "Undir Heygnum"(Under the Hill) is our flagship. Built in the 1920's and renovated in 2002, the house today looks newly built - although the old building style is preserved.
Plank floors, the old and original stairways with hand-carved railings and an astonishing view of the beautiful inlet of Trongisvágur, together create an unique atmosphere, bound to
The house has 3 floors. On every floor there is at least one bathroom with a shower or a bathtub and all the rooms come with a TV. The house has, as the only guesthouse on the island, its own jetty for smaller boats. A shed also belongs to the house, where the visitors are free to use the large freezers, tools, fishing rods, safety wests and suits and much more. The Guesthouse also owns an old fishing cutter. The cutter is newly renovated, and can be rented for fishing trips or sightseeing.
Round the house is a beautiful stone terrace. In the summertime, the guests tend to spend a lot of their time here. In the wintertime, when temperature plunges, we can just roll out the large canopy's and turn on the outdoor gas terrace heaters.
Our newest house is the beauti-ful house on Sjógøta 24. The house is renovated in 2012 and today it is a great place for famili-es or ringle persons to relax and spend some quality time.

In one of the most picturesque villages on the Faroe Islands, the traveller can find Guesthouse Fámjin. Fámjin is simply stunningly beautiful and if you are looking for peace and tranquility, Fámjin is the place to be!
Fámjin is one of the few villages on the island, on the west side. Steep, torn cliffs rise high out of the often roaring Atlantic Ocean and sounds of sheep, birds and the ocean itself, are the background noices of the village.
The village has few inhabitans, but it has a lot of sightseeing opportunities for the visitors. The very first Faroese flag, Merkið, can be seen in the beautiful, old church. If you follow the small waterfall next to the church, you will find the "Church-lake". A small, but beautiful little lake, where you can enjoy the scenery or try to catch some of the trouts in the lake.
A little trip to the harbour, with the many boathouses, will lead you to the majestic, steef cliffs, who proudly welcome you. It is possible to drive the car almost to the bottom of the cliffs, and then walk the remaining 100-200 metres for the view.
Fámjin is a historic village and we warmly recommend a visit.
About 125 years old, the small café is a historical landmark for the village.
Established in the late 1800's by the Mortensen family of Tvøroyri, the house was run as a local market for the villagers. Here, the villagers bought what they themselves couldn't grow or hunt. Here you had a chat and solved all the troubles in the world.
Today, the house is almost just as it was back then, and when visiting, you feel like you are in another century.
In the summertime, the house is a café and kiosk, with a large outdoor terrace on both ground- and 1. floor..
