Borðoy is the largest of the Northern Isles. Borðoy has eight towns and villages, beginning from the south, they are Norðoyri, Klaksvík, Ánirnar, Árnafjørður, Norðtoftir, Depil, Norðdepil and at its northern end, the abandoned historical village of Múli.

Borðoy is known for its diverse nature, tall mountains, gentle valleys and beautiful fjords. The small charming villages are dotted along the shore.

A popular trip on Borðoy is to take the bus from Klaksvík to Norðdepil and walk from Norðdepil to the abandoned village of Múli.

You can also walk in the footsteps of history to the old thingstead in Køtlum. It is the centre of the Northern Isles, right above the village of Árnafjørður. In ancient times this was the place where the people of the Northern Isles came to solve their disputes. The place is marked by a group of stones that are said to form the ancient thingstead. Occasionally public meetings with speeches and live music are held here.
