Witness the fascinating Bird Cliffs in Vestmanna. You will sail in a boat to the Vestmannabjørgini and caves. This is stunning. You will be picked up in Tórshavn and then head north to the village Vestmanna.

The boat to the Bird Cliffs in Vestmanna sails from early May to late September. Choose a date to check availability.

From the harbour in Vestmanna, you will sail in a local boat to a place out of this world. You will experience narrow straits, deep grottoes and almost 700-metre high cliffs soaring up from the ocean. This is an unbelievable sight. Even though your tour guide has seen this sight many times before, you will hear on his voice how impressed he is by the unbelievable nature.

Whilst in the Vestmanna bird cliffs, you might be lucky to get a glimpse of the most adorable puffins and you will definitely see colonies of other birds such as razorbills and guillemots. The Atlantic puffin spend the summer in the Faroe Islands.

The rich birdlife will be only few metres away from you. The birds are nesting in rocky crevices and under rock slabs so you will have the chance to get some great photos. It is utterly incredible to see all the birds thriving on these cliffs by the Atlantic Ocean. The whole area is untouched and as unspoiled as it can be.

Standing on board the boat looking at the sheer cliffs and feeling the ocean around you is an incredible experience. This is the reason why Vestmanna Bird Cliffs are one of travellers’ favourite destinations in the Faroe Islands. This is a boat tour of a lifetime.

You will sail for approximately two hours. When back in Vestmanna, you will get a special treat in the cosy local seaside restaurant.

On your way back to Tórshavn, you will stop in the village of Leynar where you can stretch your legs on the white sanded beach. There is so much beauty on this tour. Many people will find themselves speechless. You can witness the Vestmanna Bird Cliffs from early May until late September.
