Days of Torri

Days of Torri is a cultural week in Klaksvík that marks a special period in the yearly fishing calendar.

The Torri season stems from the old calendar and lasts from the new moon at the end of January to the next new moon.

The cultural week pivots around themes relating to fishing traditions and the Torri period, when the fish is especially well-fed and carries roe.

The programme usually includes lectures, a health café and a delicious fish buffet. The library invites children to an afternoon of stories and activities that relate to the ocean. There is also the Torri Run, concerts and exhibitions.

Days of Torri is a cultural breath of fresh air in an otherwise quiet time of the year, where you can experience the interplay of culture and fisheries.
