Kayak renting

A different activity option on Vágar is kayaking on the lake of Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn.

Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn is one of the most attractive sightseeing spots on Vágar. The lake is the largest in the Faroe Islands, and has also been dubbed “the lake above the sea” 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.

Kayaking on Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn is a different and refreshing way of experiencing this beautiful lake and the nature of the Faroe Islands. Kayaking is great exercise, you come very close to the water and nature and can experience these up close.

The meeting place for the tour is by the jetty on Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn right by the statue of the Nix. These are single kayaks and safety jacket and spray skirt are included in the prize

The indicative price is: 200 DKK for 3 hours and 400 DKK for a full day

Safety requirements:

You must be able to swim min 150 m in nature to be allowed to rent the kayaks.

If the wind is 12 m/s or more the tour will be cancelled.
