NATURE AND WILDLIFE; 6 days / 5 nights, from € 1.125,- | DKK 8.395,-
This package is a special offer for those who appreciate the outdoors, nature and wildlife. You will experience many things unique to the Faroe Islands, the bird cliffs, the mountains, quaint traditional villages and the special culture, friendliness and hospitality. You travel on your own by car and we provide a full program which you can adjust to your own liking.
Day 1: Arrival at Vágar airport. You may pick up your car at the 62°N desk at the airport before checking in at Hotel Vágar for two nights. We suggest a walk around the lake Sørvágsvatn out to the famous waterfall Bøsdalafossur. The waterfall and the amazing view of the western side of the island Vágar will leave a lasting impression.
Day 2: We can recommend a tour of the island Mykines, the Faroe Islands westernmost island. It is known for its abundant bird life, mountains and lovely hike to the Mykines-islet. You can choose to do the tour with or without guide (look under add on)
Days 3 and 4: Early in the morning the ferry for Suðuroy departs with you onboard. This is the southernmost island, known for its magnificent green mountainsides, colourful villages and its rugged westside with free-standing rocks and steep birdcliffs. We recommend visiting both Akraberg, the southernmost point of The Faroe Islands, and the spectacular rock of Beinisvørð. You may also visit the small village Fámjin where you will find the very first original Faroese flag which is kept in the village church. The creator of the flag only lived to the age of 23 and is buried there. Finally, we also recommend hiking to the area Hvannhagi, one of the most beautiful and unique natural areas on Suðuroy. You will spend the night in Hotel Tvøroyri. The following day the ferry will take you back to Tórshavn, departing in the afternoon. You will return to the hotel in Tórshavn where you will spend your last two nights in the Faroe Islands.
While in Tórshavn we suggest that you explore the smallest and most cozy capital in the world. Visit the old town á Reyni, the world's oldest parliament Tinganes and Fort Skansin. Where you get a good overview of the city, its history and its architecture.
Take the opportunity to visit the faroese handy work and design shops, the cozy cafes near the harbor Vágsbotn, and maybe even a visit to the National museum, the Art museum and the Nordic house.
Day 5: A full day on the island of Nólsoy - just 20 minutes away from Tórshavn - you will discover an island totally different from the 2010 Europe - you will travel several decades back in time. You can also take the opportunity to discover the island together with on of the local guides.
The island has the largest colony of storm petrels - but these birds are only possible to see a night time. The light house there has on of the largest lens which is more that 3 meter in diameter and the weight is over 4 tonnes. A hike out to Borðan where you find the lighthouse can be recommend.
Day 6: Early in the morning you may finish your journey by driving the approximately 40 km to the village Vestmanna which hosts one of the most popular attractions of the country - a boat trip to the amazing birdcliffs and caves of Vestmannabjørgini. Afterwards, simply drop off your car at the airport and enjoy your flight home.
