Transport to Mykines
Firstly, we always recommend that you go to Mykines at the beginning of your journey to the Faroe Islands. Because it is possible to be stuck on Mykines because of weather. This rarely happens, but it always happens a few times every year.
There are two ways of getting to Mykines:
In the summer – from 1st of May until the 31st of August the boat “Jósup” sails to Mykines every day, if the weather allows it that is.
It is important to book seats un the boat in high season since the boat often is full.
The Helicopter flyes to Mykines all year round – if the weather allows it that is.
It goes on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. With Friday being the only day of the week that is goes twice a day. If you go on the other days, you would have to spend the night on Mykines.
The Helicopter departs from Vágar airport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 09.45 and un Sundays at 12:15. On Fridays it is possible to get back to Vágar, the helicopter departs from Mykines at 15.00 o’clock.
There are only 12seats in the helicopter, and it is therefore very important to book these seats well in advance.
