Excursion 1 – Vestmanna Bird Cliffs
The rich bird life, exquisite cliffs and deep caves are, among others, what makes Vestmanna bird cliffs to one of the most popular attractions in the Faroe Islands. Sightseeing boats leave from Vestmanna and sails to Seyðskorargjógv, from where they are sailing at reduced speed in between the free-standing rocks, into the caves and close to the around 600 m high cliff sides, where the many seabirds are nesting, among others puffin, cormorant and fulmar. The sound of the seabirds, the whisper of the sea, the free-standing rocks and the interaction between the many colours, makes the trip an experience that you will late forget!
Excursion 2 – Mykines, the bird island
ykines, the westernmost island on the Faroes Islands. However, this is not what it is best known for. Here can namely be found a true seabird paradise, which in the summer season attracts thousands of migratory birds. Here you can get quite close to the puffin, which with its colourful, famous beak is considered among the most popular subjects for photography.
Not only the famous bird life is an attraction at Mykines. There are also good opportunities for hiking, among others to Mykineshólmur which is the islet west of Mykines. The tour crosses over a deep gorge via a footbridge of about 40 m, which connects the islet with the mainland. The islet is also, as the only place in the Faroe Islands, home to a small colony of gannets.
The free-standing cliffs surrounding the lighthouse, along with the rich bird life is almost a must to experience on your trip to the Faroe Islands.
Excursion 3 – Gjógv
Gjógv is known for its magnificent nature, with the popular natural harbour, which the hamlet is also named after. The number of residents is limited – only 31 people live in Gjógv (2015), but the hamlet is a popular tourist destination, both because of its location and charm, particularly the picturesque houses, the beautiful scenery and landing, which is protected in a ravine, the Faroese natural harbour (Gjógv). The landing was the lifeline of the hamlet until 1960 when the road was built.
Excursion 4 – Saksun
Saksun; Saksun is by many described as the most beautiful place in the Faroe Islands, and is a favourite destination with its large sandy beach, the beautiful location, the museum and the old church. The exquisite view from the church across the lagoon and the many houses with grass-covered roofs, are among the most popular photo motifs.
