Klaksvik Overview

Klaksvík is the second largest town of the Faroe Islands. The town is located on Borðoy, which is one of the northernmost islands (in Faroese: Norðoyar).

Klaksvik is located between two inlets lying back to back. It has an important harbour with fishing industry and a modern fishing fleet. Originally, four farms were located where Klaksvik is now. In time, they grew into four villages that finally merged to form the town of Klaksvík. What triggered the development of the town was the establishment of a centralized store for all the northern islands on the location.

The Norðoyatunnilin, a submarine tunnel to Leirvík was opened in April 2006, so now it's very easy to come to Klaksvík ;)))
