King’s Harbour

Cruise ships dock at Kongshavn, which translates to King’s Harbour. This is the part of the port of Runavík that the King of Denmark made use of in older days, whenever visiting the Faroe Islands.

The Faroe Islands is officially an autonomous constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark. Even before the Danish King started to visit, the Vikings made use of the harbour. It was considered the safest in the region.
