This is really a case of "the journey to the destination is part of the trip". After driving to the tunnel from Haraldssund, you will get excellent views over Kalsoy. The little village of Kunoy has one the few parks in the Faroe Islands. The mountains in the back make it really look spectacular. Definitely worth the detour.

Respect to all the people who live and have lived in the original village of Kunoy. Nature is rough and the scenery is especially beautiful. It was rainy and windy and a fantastic opportunity for a walk. Beautiful church and waterfalls. The mountains are very tall and the village is literally on the side of the steep mountain. Only a short drive from Klaksvik.

Once through the tunnel its a short drive to Kunoy which is beautifully situated under a rock ampitheatre clinging to the side of the fjord. There is a nice harbour and 30 min circular walk above the village which takes in thedelightful Kunoy park. This is a plantation next to a stream where families paddle and picnic.

Viðarlundin, the name of this park, has been around since its original trees were planted in 1914. It is a surprise copse of trees in an otherwise treeless landscape, and when you stand in the middle of it, you almost feel as if you're in the middle of a forest with babbling brooks and mountain trails. But unlike typical forests in the world, this one has a large variety of trees, from beech and birch, to different pines and spruces, and even some cypress. You can hike from one end of the forest to the other in just a few minutes, but it's a lovely surprise, and a pleasant walk.

The first impression you get when come out of Vagar airport, at the Faroe Islands, is the naked landscape. The is no trees and the heather is quite low. The prevailing vegetation is the grass field. In the hill sides you can see that the land is sliding very slowly in slopes. The weather at summertime is quite cold. All these impressions reminds you of the mountainous areas ( above 1000 m) in southern Norway. The are some artificial parks with trees at Faroe Islands. One of these is situated at Kunoy Bygd. You can see a stone appr. 4 m high inside the park with a rope hanging down. This park represents an offer of leisure time for families and school classes.
