The Port of Tórshavn (Tórshavnar havn) is the largest and busiest of the many harbours dotted throughout the Faroe Islands. As a thriving port with a truly international outlook, Tórshavn offers an unrivalled concentration of quality maritime services and expertise.

Tórshavn has enjoyed success as a base for North Atlantic fishing fleets, a focus for the nation’s container and ro-ro ferry traffic and a growing summer call for cruise ships.

In recent times, a process of consolidation has led to many smaller neighbouring municipalities – Kollafjørður, Nolsøy, Kirkjubøur, Hestur and Koltur – being absorbed into Tórshavn. So today, around 40 per cent of the total population of the Faroe Islands lives within its extended municipal boundaries.

As a consequence, this municipal enlargement has significantly widened the operating. area of Tórshavnar havn, which now includes harbour facilities at Sund and Kollafjørður.

The three harbour areas directly controlled by Tórshavnar havn are the best served in the Faroe Islands.

Tórshavn is also the largest port in the Faroe Islands for containerised cargo. Every week, container services link Tórshavn directly with Iceland, Scandinavia, Continental Europe and the UK.



Ready to meet your every need

Situated in the heart of the rich fishing grounds of the North Atlantic, the Faroe Islands is one of just a handful of locations providing a secure base and servicing centre for the vessels that operate in these waters.

As the largest and busiest harbour grouping in the Faroes, the Port of Tórshavn and its satellite facilities at Sund and Kollafjørður are perfectly placed to meet the wide-ranging needs of fish factories and fishing vessels.

The port authority, Tórshavnar havn, is totally committed to the fishing industry. For example, the port authority has already dedicated space at Sund as a service base for its largely eastern European fishing customers.

Thanks to its location, well away from centres of population, Sund is perfect for activities such as alongside ship-to-ship fish transfers, storage of fishing equipment, provisioning and minor repairs.

Tórshavn itself is geared to more sophisticated services such as bunkers, ice supplies, major repairs, provisioning and the supply of new equipment and spare parts. In addition, some fish is landed directly at Tórshavn, especially demersal species for the local filleting plant.
