hiking in the faroe islands
HIKING HOLIDAY; 8 days / 7 nights, from € 1.766,- | DKK 13.095,-
The Faroe Islands is a dream destination for those who love nature and outdoor activities. It is an exceptional place to travel in because there is no need to go far to experience outstanding and unspoiled nature. As much of the more rugged scenery is accessible only on foot, a great way to explore the islands is to hike around them, there are footpaths on all the islands, some marked with cairns which function as inland lighthouse to aid walkers' navigation between villages.
We have designed a package that offers you a great week packed with varying walks. We will provide a proposed program and detailed route descriptions but you will set the agenda and pace just as you like it.
Day 1: After arrival you will pick up your rental car at the airport and drive to Hotel Vágar - only 200 meters down the road - where you will spend the first two nights. We recommend that you start this hiking week with a hike over the mountain to the remote village Gásadalur.
Day 2: Hiking on the amazing bird island Mykines. You will take a hike out to the Mykines-islet which is known for its challanging route and rich bird life, and in particular the puffins and gannets are the attraction, but you might see some inguistive or dozing seals as well.
Day 3: You will go south to the island Suðuroy. Where you will check in at Hotel Tvøroyri. Take the hike to Hvannhagi where you have the beautiful view over Lítla Dímun and Stóra Dímun.
Day 4: Hiking from Øravík to Vágur which gives you the chance to see a lot of the island. You can hike the same way back to Øravík, or you can take the bus back to Tvøroyri.
Day 5: Today you are heading back to Tórshavn where you will have the opportunity to go on a boat tour, just relax, go shopping or just enjoy the peaceful capital. Take a walk through the old town - á Reyni og Tinganes. Check in at Hotel Streym or Bládýpið where you will stay the next three nights.
Day 6: Only 20 minutes ferry ride away you will experience the life on a small island called Nólsoy, where people still live the peaceful and traditional lifestyle. Hike to the lighthouse on Borðan.
Day 7: Hike from Tórshavn to Kirkubøur - the old cultural center of the Faroe Islands with historical buildings dating back to the 1100s. Visit the oldest wooden house Roykstovan with its 900 years, the Faroe oldest church from the year 1111 and the ruins of St. Petersburg. Magnus Cathedral, considered one of the greatest cultural attractions.
Day 8: This hiking week has come to an end and you have a plane to catch. Before leaving these islands in the North Atlantic we recommend a hike out to the big spectacular waterfall, Bøsdalafossur. Before departure you will drop off the car at the airport.
