Toftir

Toftir (Danish: Tofte) is a village in Nes Municipality on the island of Eysturoy, in the Faroe Islands.

Toftir is part of a chain of villages stretching over a distance of 10 kilometres on the east side of Skálafjørður (fjord) on Eysturoy.

The highest hill in Toftir, called Húkslond, is only 129 metres high, and Nes Municipality is the only area in Faroe, which has no mountains (above 200 metres).

The Toftavatn lake area was the first area to become a Nature reserve in the Faroe Islands back in the 1980s, and in 2006 Nes Municipalcy in cooperation with neighbouring Runavík Municipalcy joined a network of local authorities in the Nordic countries, who would carry out specific projects that aimed to halt the loss of biodiversity in their local areas.

Toftir is served by Bus no. 440 which is linked to Bus no. 400 for Tórshavn on Skipanes Junction.
