The Port of Runavík is the biggest and most developed port in Skálafjørur, the longest fjord in the Faroe Islands. The Port is well known as being particularly safe and well protected from the large Atlantic waves. The Port of Runavík is also known as King’s Harbour. The name King’s Harbour is very old. History tells us that the vikings used this harbour because it was the safest harbour in the Faroe Islands. The Port of Runavík is in the southern part of Eysturoy, the second largest of the Faroe Islands with an area of 268 km2 and a population of about 11.000. Eysturoy is a transport hub and is connected with subtunnels to both Streymoy and Noruroyggjar. Nature lovers will be truly fascinated by Eysturoy, not only by its impressive countryside, but also by its friendly, hospitable people.
