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.
