Cleft by deep fjords, Suðuroy is a most picturesque island that has much to offer the visitor - from historic Sandvík in the north to the beautiful, natural scenery of Sumba on the south. The two largest towns, Tvøroyri and Vágur, are situated on beautiful fjords surrounded by mountains. All of the island's towns and villages are linked by a network of modern roads, which offers easy access to a variety of fascinating landscapes.
The northernmost villages of Hvalba and Sandvík are connected by one of the oldest tunnels in the Faroe Islands. The tunnel between Trongisvágur and Hvalba is the oldest tunnel for cars in the Faroes. Hvalba, by the way, is the only place in the Faroe Islands where you can still find coal-mining operations. From either of these two villages, there is a magnificent view of Lítla Dímun, the only uninhabited island in the Faroes.
On the southernmost tip of Suðuroy is the village of Sumba, which is the birthplace of one of the best loved and perhaps most controversial poets in the Faroe Islands, Poul F. Joensen, known simply as Poul F. When travelling to and from Sumba by the mountains road, you will travel near the second-highest cliff in the Faroe Islands. Beinisvørð, towering at 469 m, is a haven for seabirds and is a veritable wonder to behold because of its singular beauty.
