Our guide was excellent. We enjoyed a long hike and had great views. The wheather was incredibly clear and sunny and this contributed to make the day amazing.

Great day trip our guide Tummas was very friendly and a great guide. The hike itself was quite tiring but the views and being surrounded by puffins made it worthwhile! Highly recommend this tour which was well worth the money.

I had the most amazing trip! The team was very helpful and accommodating and the trip leader even helped me find the best place on the boat to stand (as I tend to get quite sea-sick...but I didn't on this trip)! The island was absolutely beautiful and I saw more puffins than I ever thought I'd see in my life time. We had a beautiful hike, a nice lunch and views that I will never forget. Thank you for such an incredible experience.

The tour was excellent. The tour guide is very nice and it is great that you did not walk the steap slope.

We took the ferry from Vagar to Mykines but we had to check the weather before the departure as it 's not always favorable and sometimes the ferry cannot come to take you back to Vagar! The weather is unpredictable. We had a little bit of Rain, sun and wind! So you have to dress in layers. A waterproof jacket and good hiking shoes is a must. The path is not very easy, but the View is absolutely stunning. Our guide Thomas was skilled and showed us the way to the puffins' nests. We had a lovely lunch, that our guide had prepared for us, when we reached the lighthouse ! The way Back is easier. You have some time to stroll around the Village as well, while waiting for the ferry to pick you up!
