"Unlit Tunnels between the Northern Islands" Faroe Islands Off The Beaten Path Tip by seaouk

Faroe Islands Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 21 photos


If you have access to your own transportation you must drive through some of the tunnels that connect the northern islands.

These tunnels are mostly single track unlit with passing places. One way of the traffic has piority (usually stated just beofre the entrance to the tunnel) and the other way has to give way and use the passing places. When pulled over some people dip the main beam to just head lights which makes the tunnels so dark, but allows you not to blind the on coming driver.

It can be hard to judge how far away an on comign car is in the dark, so we went by the rule that if we saw someone coming we pulled in. However even the Faroes find it difficult judging distance in the tunnels and you might have to do a bit of reversing if missed judged.
