Located on the south coast of the island of Vágar, Miðvágur is the largest town on this Faroese island. For years, Miðvágur has been known as a good location for whaling and, traditionally, bells would ring with the cry "Grindaboð!" - "Pilot whale ahoy!"
Stop At: Sorvagur, Sorvagur, Vagar Island
Sørvágur is considered to be one of the oldest villages in the Faroe Islands. In 1957 the locals decided to build a new school, and during the preparations to build the schools gymnastic hall they excavated an old Viking settlement. Sørvágur – alongside Leirvík, Tjørnuvík and Sandur – is in one of the few places in the Faroe Islands where archaeologists have been able to find substantial proof that these places were built during the first 100-150 years after the Faroese Landnám in 825.
Even though the village is old, there is no mention of it, or the island of Vágoy, in the old Faeringa Saga from the thirteenth century.
Here we will leave the coach, and board the ferry that will sail us from Vágar to Mykines.
The sail trip takes approx. 40 minutes, and if we are lucky the captain will sail right next to the famous sea-stack "Drangarnir", so be ready with your camera !
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Mykines, Mykines
Mykines village is the only settlement on Mykines Island, the westernmost of the Faroe Islands. It is a little coastal village with bright houses with turf roofs, with an old turf-roofed stone Church dating from 1878, and a small stream flowing through the village.
Here we will walk up to the village, visit the restrooms, and prepare for the amazing hike out to the lighthouse.
After the hike we go back to the village, and we will visit some locals!
Duration: 3 hours
Stop At: Mykineshólmur, Faroe Islands
The islet is connected to Mykines by a 40m long footbridge 30 meters over the Atlantic ocean. The hike offers some of the most incredible views of the ocean and other islands. At the end of the islet lies the lighthouse, built in 1909. A large number of puffins, gannets and other birds inhabit the islet of Mykines and this is the closest you can get to the fragile and sacred wildlife and nature – an amazing experience.
When we arrive at the lighthouse (the westernmost point of the Faroe Islands) we will enjoy a home-made packed lunch while the gannets fly around our heads.
Duration: 2 hours
Pass By: Lake Leitisvatn, Vagar Island Faroe Islands
At 3.4 square kilometers, the fresh water lake Leitisvatn is the largest in the Faroe Islands. The lake has also been dubbed “the lake above the ocean” as the view from a particular angle functions as an optical illusion, appearing to look as though the lake is hovering directly above the ocean. At the end of the lake is the impressive Bøsdalafossur waterfall.
