While the Faroe Islands may be remote, you'll still find several car rental options in Tórshavn, ranging from international chains like Avis and Hertz to local providers like 62°N and Bilrøkt.


To rent a car in Tórshavn, you'll typically need:

  1. A valid driver's license from your home country.
  2. A valid passport.
  3. A credit card for the booking and potential deposits.

Vehicle Choice

Tórshavn's roads are generally well-maintained, but for travels outside the city or during winter, consider a vehicle with good clearance or 4WD capabilities to navigate some of the more rugged terrains or snowy conditions.

Driving in Tórshavn: What to Expect

  1. Road Conditions: Roads in and around Tórshavn are in good shape. However, mountain roads or those in more isolated areas might be narrower or more challenging, especially in inclement weather.

  2. Traffic: Tórshavn and the Faroe Islands, in general, are not known for heavy traffic. However, be cautious, as sheep often wander onto roads!

  3. Parking: Tórshavn has several parking areas, and parking regulations are well-indicated. Always check signage to ensure you're parked correctly.

  4. Safety: The Faroe Islands are known for their safety. Still, when driving, especially outside of Tórshavn, be cautious of rapidly changing weather conditions and always inform someone of your travel route.

Tolls & Fuel

  1. Tolls: There are no toll roads on the Faroe Islands. However, there are sub-sea tunnels connecting different islands, and these have toll fees. It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with these charges before traveling.

  2. Fuel: Fuel stations can be found in Tórshavn and other main towns. It's wise to fill up when available, especially if venturing to more remote areas.

Renting a car in Tórshavn unlocks the many wonders of the Faroe Islands. With majestic landscapes, unique cultural experiences, and the open road ahead, your Faroese adventure promises to be unforgettable.
