Cruise in a sustainable way

May 16, 2023

The cruise ship Ocean Adventurer calls the beautiful village Funningur in the Norhtern part of Eysturoy on Friday 19 May 2023. The ship will anchor outside the village and the passengers will come ashore in zodiac boats. Arrival 7:00 and departure 17:00. 

During the past few years the Port of Runavík has, together with Visit Runavík, developed a sustainable product for smaller expedition ships in cooperation with local inhabitants. There are about 70 people living in Funningur and they are looking forward to welcome cruise passengers. The maximum number of allowed calls is three ships per year. 

Funningur is ready to welcome both passengers and crew together with Visit Runavík and the Port of Runavík. The locals offer several experiences e.g. café and souvenir shop in the school, historical exhibition in Ólvustova, church visit and hymn singing, guided strolls through the village, Faroese Chain dance and hiking tours with local guides.

This is the second time that a cruise ship will call Funningur and the local inhabitants of Funningur have planned the visit together with the Port of Runavík and Visit Runavík. Ocean Adventurer is 100 m long and there are approx. 100 people onboard. The ship’s operator is Quark Expeditions and its agent in the Faroe Islands is Faroe Ship.

A local and warm welcome to Ocean Adventurer
