Norðurjól (Christmas in the North)

With its small Faroese arts and crafts market and the scent of roasted almonds in the cold air, Norðurjól is designed to get you into the spirit of Christmas.

Norðurjól is a Christmas event arranged by Klaksvíkar Kommuna in December. To beat the chill, hot soup and drinks are for sale while bands and choirs perform on the open stage. Santa Claus also pups by and people join together to sing Christmas carols.

Norðurjól is a great place to get that Christmas feeling and lay your hands on some homemade Faroese souvenirs or find your Christmas gifts.
