Oyndarfjørður is a
cosy little village on Eysturoy’s east coast.
A small river traverses the village.
Down by the sea there is a bridge across the river. Above the bridge
there is a little church from 1838 and on the other side is the
beach and boathouses that are called ‘neyst’ in Faeroese.
In Oyndarfjørður there is a camping-site and a youth hostel. It is
possible to go fishing or hiking in the mountains in the area.
In addition to the village it self ‘Rinkusteinar’ are worth a visit.
These are two rocks in the inlet a couple of meters from the beach.

Later an old lady revealed that they were made by an young artist in
