Tórshavn is the capital and largest town of the Faroe Islands. Venture out of the city with trips to Vestmanna Bird Cliffs (in Vestmanna), Nolsoyar Viti (in Nolsoy) and Christianskirkjan (in Klaksvik). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Torshavn Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Listasavn Foroya, examine the collection at National Museum of the Faroe Islands, and don't miss a visit to The Nordic House.

Plan my day in Torshavn using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Detroit, USA to Torshavn is an approximately 20-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Detroit to Torshavn. When traveling from Detroit in August, plan for colder days and slightly colder nights in Torshavn: temperatures range from °F by day to °F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Mikladalur.
