Mykines - Birdwatching

MYKINES – THE BIRD ISLAND

Spectacular beauty. It is as simple as that!

Mykines is the westernmost islands of the Faroe Islands’ 18 islands!

The hike from the old solitary Mykines village with turf-roofed houses to the lighthouse at the end of the the islet of Mykineshólmur is truly something special – an otherworldly experience at the edge of this world. This secluded island, with its rolling hills and precipitous cliffs, has deservedly become a traveller’s favorite.

Enjoy tremendous views of the ocean to the west and other islands to the east as you walk across the island dubbed the “paradise of birds” because of its magnificent and rich bird life, including hundreds of cute puffins nestled in burrows in the clifftops during the summer months.
