We had a fantastic 8 hour bike trip to Sandoy with rent a bike. Biking is the perfect way to see the Faroese nature and wildlife (mostly sheep and birds) up close. The bikes were of top quality and much better than we expected. This made the potentially hard trip (60 km) quite easy. The guide was great! We can absolutely recommend this trip.

I visited in September 2019, for a two-hour guided tour of Tórshavn and the surrounding area. Having emailed the previous day and received a prompt response, I was greeted by Bartal and Berit (the married couple who run the company), both of whom spoke excellent English and accompanied me on the tour. The route itself was very well-chosen, taking in some stunning views over the city that would have taken at least five hours to reach on foot, and provided just the right amount of challenge for me as a keen-but-casual cyclist. While we generally took the slightly more challenging paths, Bartal mentioned that the route was somewhat flexible, and that he had prepared less challenging routes for more novice riders.

The bikes themselves were high-quality, clean, and well-maintained: clearly Bartal, having imported them himself for the business, was keen to make my experience as good as possible. Throughout the tour, Bartal and Berit offered some fascinating insights into both the specifics of cycling in the Faroes and the history and culture of the islands themselves; looking out over Tórshavn was, it turned out, the perfect point at which to learn more about this fascinating corner of the world.

It would probably have been very easy for a company such as this to have provided a bare-bones service, with a couple of beaten-up bikes that have been kicking around for years, a worn-out old map, and a vague instruction to go 'somewhere out of the city'. Clearly, though, Bartal and Berit hold themselves to much higher standards than that: I genuinely can't recommend rentabike.fo highly enough, and would encourage anyone visiting -- especially keen cyclists -- to support this local business, and to get to know some of the friendliest locals I was able to meet during my time in the Faroes.

The Faroe Islands are quite hilly and incredibly beautiful.
This company makes it possible to go on tours alone or guided.
The guided trip to Kyrkybø was just perfect. Having an electric bicycle made it possible to manage 35km without tremendous effort. The local guides are incredibly helpful and kind people.
I can highly recommend it.

Centrally located in the Tórshavn Harbor this recent addition to the Faroe Islands outdoors scene is a must for anybody wanting to experience the islands on bike.
The park consists of brand new Felt bikes befitting unpredictable weather conditions and long rides. Road or mountain bike, the choice is yours.

If unlike me you don’t want to ride alone, price worthy bike tours are also offered.

The fees vary between high season and low season, nevertheless within the range of what you would expect for renting a bike for one or a few days.

The outstanding service is what makes this shop special. It is friendly, genuine, swift and totally hassle free.

The shop owner will make sure that your experience stays impeccable and does not hesitate to do that BIG extra if time permits. Like driving me back and forth so that I could get my gear together, then dropping me and the bike off at wanted location. Just like that.

I can highly recommend this shop.

Recommend to any one who wants to experience Faroe Islands from a bicycle. It was great fun. The speed was adjusted to your level and we had time to take good pictures.

I did the guided tour to Nordadalsskard in June 2022 with Bartal from Rent-a-bike in Torshavn. Bartal was an excellent guide, and all equipment provided was of an excellent standard. He was friendly and enthusiastic, and we shared some very interesting conversations about the Faroe Islands in general, as well as about the cycle culture within the islands. The tour involved a decent climb to begin with, but anyone with a moderate fitness level can definitely handle it. Plus, Bartal encourages you to go at the pace that is best for you, and he cycles accordingly. The views on the ride are absolutely stunning and it is a very enjoyable few hours out on the road! Definitely recommend this tour!

I rented a fine roadbike, that was delivered and picked up at My hotel. Great service.

I biked from Torshavn to Sletturtindar and back. 120 km. A Long but great trip. Take The Old road over The mountain, when You leave Torshavn, so You avoid The tunnel.

Staff was friendly and helpful.
