Klaksvík is located on Borðoy, one of six islands that make up Denmark’s Norðuroyggjar, the Northern Isles. The town is not only the capital of the Northern Islands but also the second largest town of the Faroe Islands. With the opening of the Leirvík sub sea tunnel, Klaksvík is physically linked with the mainland of the Faroe Islands and can now be considered one of its key ports. Residents are found to be enterprising, appreciative of nature and are deeply rooted in the Faroe cultural heritage.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
