You will visit the charming island Nólsoy, located outside of Tórshavn, and hike to the southernmost part of Nólsoy, Borðan. The hiking trip takes about 2½ + hours each way.

At Borðan you will see the lighthouse from 1893.

On this hike you will have great views of different islands. You will see ruins and hear the stories about when people hid from the pirates in the old days.

In order to get to Nólsoy, you take the ferry ‘Ternan’ from the harbour in Tórshavn. The crossing takes about 20 minutes. 

The island of Nólsoy is also concidered a very important bird region. On the side facing Tórshavn you will find green and lush hills and on the other side there are vertical bird-cliffs.
