Useful information

Experience two of the most magnificent attractions in the Faroe Islands including the amazing sea-stacks Drangarnir and the Múlafossur Waterfall. The boat ride will treat you to an untouched view of these stunningly beautiful sights on Vágar island.

The tour starts from the small boat marina in Sørvágur (see map of meeting point). From there you will sail close to Drangarnir lying majestically between the peaky islet Tindhólmur and the island Vágar.

The awesomeness of this impressive natural wonder will give you a true understanding of why this is one of the most admired landmarks in the Faroe Islands. You will even be able to touch the dark basalt and sail through the sea arch itself, weather permitting.

Joining the captain on this tour opens a special window into a truly unique place that you will never experience otherwise. Everything about this tour is remarkable.

Next, you will head to Múlafossur Waterfall. This natural attraction has become a signature feature of the Faroe Islands. When sailing below to Gásadalur village, the boat will take you literally only few metres from the water that tumbles directly from the cliff's edge into the ocean. From the village Gásadalur, the waterfall Múlafossur simply falls off the island in a breathtaking manner. Take in the amazing view.

Expect to also get a breathtaking aerial view of Mykines island. There will also be a good chance to experience puffins during the summer months. 

You will stay in the boat during the entire trip. This will give you a unique chance to marvel at the eye-catching scenery that will be right in front of you.

Tours are made throughout the year with departure from the small boat marina (see map) in Sørvágur. The duration of the tour is one hour. This is a small group boat tour. The maximum capacity is twelve people.

Weather permitting, you can be one of very few people in the world to sail through the arch in Stóri Drangur. This is the larger of the two sea-stacks.

Grab the opportunity to explore Drangarnir and the waterfall Múlafossur. Check availability by choosing a date.

  1. David Preissel

    Despite the difficult corona situation, the guide was super friendly and the tour experience was great – even if I was the only person on the trip.

  2. Marisa Ackermann

    Fantastic trip with just the two of us on the boat. The guide drove us through the arch twice and he made sure to give us the time and best views for pictures. Highly recommended!

  3. Geir Greni

    Fantastic! One of the best experienced I had on the Faroe Islands, and that says a lot!

  4. Bjørn Richard Watne

    Convenient way to see Drangarnir cliff and Múlafossur waterfall in one go, and from a different angle. If you got the time, I’d definitely recommend hiking the former and driving to the latter as views and photo opportunities are better from shore than in a (small) boat.

    The trip was organized quite effortlessly and without any problems and delivered as advertised. The captain however could to good advantage have been a lot more talkative and involved. He was merely seated at the helm steering the boat from one direction to the next and then waving us goodbye. A little information about what we’re seeing and general Smalltalk would’ve come a long way. 🙂

    Vi havde ikke fået at vide, at afgangen var flyttet fra Sørvagur til Bøur. Det var kun, fordi vi selv kontaktede guiden 10 min før afgang, at vi nåede det. Vejret kunne have været mere klart, men det er svært at gøre noget ved det

    Our guide was very friendly and helpful. The boat and the equipment were in good condition. We could park our car directly on the quay at the marina. The tour itself is fantastic. The view is perfect and we drove through Drangarnir. Abd the weather was also great (sun). Because we drove quite fast, the cap around the ears was pleasant. We recommend warm clothes, even if it is quite warm in the harbour.

  7. Rikki Keziah

    It was so much fun! Amazing opportunity to get pictures. Be prepared for all types of weather on the boat.

  8. Rikke M. Etholm-Idsøe

    Great boat trip, beautiful scenery!

  9. Cody Vandenberg

    This was a great way to see Drangarnir and Mulafoss up close. Our guide was very kind and helpful.

  10. Karen Jones

    Best thing we did in the Faroe Islands!

  11. Claude Calade

    Fantastic small boat tour, we were only 5 people, the guide was kind and helpful, we drove along the coast first to Mulafossur, we could take pictures a few meters away from the waterfall. Then behind Tindholmur Island with various stops and finally round Drangarnir and through the arch (2 times !) with plenty of time to take a lot of pictures. Finally to my request, we went up to tje small houses on the south shore of Tindholmur. The guide showed us many birds along the way and made stops as long as we wished…
    The best tour we enjoyed and not to be missed !!!

    It was an excellent tour, with enough time to enjoy the scenery and take pictures. The crew was very polite, helpful and professional. The only problem I had was I thought the boat will sail by Mykines as shown on the map in the website.

  13. Samantha Tu

    A very special experience, got to see the island from a different view! The tour guides are very nice too!

  14. Vannessa Phang

    It’s a wonderful experience to be able to go thru drangarnir in a boat. The trip was well over an hour and the experience is definitely worth the money!

  15. Travis McFadden

    Ellef was an awesome guide! He showed us the sites, offered to take pics of us, and brought us close to the stacks and waterfalls. He gave excellent commentary on the formation of the land and the birds we saw. The weather was cloudy but gorgeous. Smartphone with cameras should be taken at the very least. Also a warm hat, gloves, and jacket or sweater. Highly recommend – the best part of our visit to the Faroes so far!

  16. Oriol R.

    Amazing tour! The views were incredible and the guides very kind and they told us about every spot. Totally recommended!

  17. Simmgi Sung

    It was great!

  18. Patrick Branson

    We had a great time on the bout tour. It was a nice easy way to see Drangarnir and Múlafossur. Loved going into the cave and our captain was nice and friendly.

  19. Chris Tran

    The trip was amazing! We really loved it! Thank you so much for this boat ride to see the Drangarnir/Mulafossur from the ocean side.

  20. Dietrich

    It was worth every Cent!

  21. Geng Wang

    We had a great time on the boat excursion. The breathtaking natural beauty and pleasant weather are memorable.

    I believe going through the Drangarnir went a little too rapid, making it difficult to capture some excellent shots. It was still a 5 star experience!

  22. Christina

    I was very satisfied with the tour and actually it was the best excursion I had during my holiday in the Faroes 🙂

    The rib was so much fun and the 2 guides were so kind and explained so many things to me, as well as answered my numerous questions. Actually please thank them again for me 🙂

    I miss the Faroes so much – I hope to go back one day!

    Ciao and thanks from Italy
