Bespoke tours

In addition to the regular tours, we also do bespoke tours, where a guide will take you wherever you want to go. The possibilities on Vágar and Mykines are endless so if you have a place in mind, feel free to send us an enquiry.

 

Here are some suggestions of places you might want to go:

 

Knúkur, Mykines: This is the highest mountain of Mykines. In the late 70s, this was the site of a plane crash, and still today you will see some parts of it here.

 

Stone forrest, Mykines:  The stone forrest of Mykines consists of 55-meter high columns of basalt (stone). Tradition says that a real forest was to be found on Mykines in the old days. Then the King of Norway wanted  people to pay taxes because they had this forest. The people lied to him and told him that there were no forests on their island. Hence the forest turned into stone.

 

Árnafjall – Vágar highest mountain: This walk would include some climbing, though, don’t let this put you off: when you get to the top you will see scenery that will soon make you forget the struggle it was getting there.

 

Slættanes: This is a desolate village on the north side of the island of Vágar. Although it was abandoned in 1965, those who grew up there have kept their houses, and frequently visit the village in the summer. This means that the village has been kept in almost the exactly the same state it was in when abandoned.

 

Víkar: This is another desolate village on the island of Vágar. When the peole left Víkar in 1910, they took their houses with them, so the two houses currently in the village have been built later.

 

A trip around lake Leitisvatn: Whilst we do offer a trip out towards the Bøsdalafossur waterfall amongst our regular tours, you might instead want to take a hike around the entire lake. Being the biggest lake on the Faroe Islands,   

 

A trip to Fjallavatn: Being the 2nd largest lake of the Faroe Islands, this would also he a longer hike. At the end you would get to Norð á Munna, a place with great seaview, where you occationally will see large whales playing in the bay. You will also see the beach of Víkar, one of the best places in Faroe Islands to find driftwood, which was incredibly important in the days before wood was regularly imported.

 

A hike around the entire island of Vágar: Naturally, this would be the longest hike we could offer. This would take you around almost all the hikes we could offer. Following mostly the old village paths, you would get a very good idea of how people would travel in the old days before the roads were built. This could be arranged as a very long one day hike, or if you prefer, we could arrange overnight stays in the villages, which would make it an easier hike.
