Enjoy the wonders of the Faroe Islands on this 4-day package tour around the islands, while an experienced tour guide guides you through the island's landscape, wildlife, and history. You will experience wonders like Mykines, Saksun, Gjógv, Kalsoy, Vestmanna bird cliffs and many others magical places. Aside from strolling around in the villages and the hike to the lighthouse in Mykines, these tours are suitable for almost anyone.

What to expect?

Monday – Golden Circle (Saksun, Tjørnvík & Gjógv)

  • The journey takes you to the Northern Eysturoy and Streymoy were you will visit the three villages Saksun, Tjørnuvík, and Gjógv. On the mountain road to these villages, you will also see some beautiful sights like the biggest waterfall in the Faroe Islands, “Fossá” and the two rocks that stand tall in the ocean, ” Risin og Kellingin” – The witch and the Giant. There are many tales surrounding these two "lovers", which the guide will happily beguile you with.

Tuesday: Mykines “The Puffin Island”

  • A whole day trip to the Ramsar island, Mykines, where we will drive from Tórshavn to the village Sørvágur and from there sail with a ferry for 40 min. to the islands of Mykines. Arriving in Mykines, a local greets you and invited you to his house were he has prepared a packed lunch.

  • When everyone is ready, the journey begins towards the lighthouse which is situated on the islet Mykineshólmur. The hike itself to the islet is probably the best hiking you can do in the Faroes. With thousands of puffins, kittiwakes, gannets, and a few guillemots surround you in the air while you walk along the beautiful path.

  • Near the lighthouse, we eat the packed lunch on the westernmost point of the Faroes. On the hike back, we'll take another route, and from there you will get up close to the gannets, which are the biggest birds in the Faroes.

Wednesday: Northern Islands – Six islands in one day

  • A whole day tour up North where we will visit the six islands Streymoy, Eysturoy, Borðoy, Kunoy, Kalsoy, and Viðoy. This tour includes a lot of sightseeing on the bus, visiting villages such as Klaksvík, Mikladalur, Trøllanes, Viðareiði and many more.
  • From Klaksvík there is 20-minute ferry ride to the island of Kalsoy. Here you will get the opportunity to experience the Faroes from the water.

Thursday: Vestmanna Birdcliffs

  • The journey takes us to the village Vestmanna where a large, comfortable boat will take you for a 2.5-hour boat ride to the Vestmanna bird cliffs.
