All three buildings (Mauritia lives in the middle house) are set on the sunny side of the lovely village of Kvívík, overlooking the mountains and the sea.
Kvivik was due to its protected and picturesque location one of the first settlement points of the Vikings. Even today, the foundations can be visited. And that is not the only reason why Kvívík is a popular destination for tourists as well as one of the most photographed places of the Isles.
Kvívík is located halfway between the airport and the capital Tórshavn. The journey takes about 20 minutes.
Anglers will be pleased to hear that the legendary Leynavatn (for salmon fishing) and the beach at Leynar (one of the best places for sea trout) are only 3 km away.
Kvívík is ideally located in the heart of the Faroe Islands. It is very easy to visit all the points of the Faroe Islands in a relaxed day trip. It is therefore not necessary to stay overnight if you are planning a sightseeing program. Take it easy and return to your cozy lodge in the evening.
