Enjoy the scenic view from the highest summit in the Faroe Islands. The mountain Slættaratindur is a great hike and the scenery is lovely up hill and on the top.

Slættaratindur peaks at 880 metre above sea level. You will reach the highest point in the Faroe Islands with a experienced tour guide that will keep you on the path all the way to the highest peak. 

The tour starts in Tórshavn in the morning. You will drive North on Streymoy island and then cross a short bridge to Eysturoy island. When on Eysturoy, you will head further North. You will pass the village Funningur and then drive up the steep winding road beneath the highest mountain, Slættaratindur.  to Eiðisskarð from where your hike to the top will start. The drive from Tórshavn will take 1 hour. Your hike will start halfway up the mountain as the road will take you to almost 400 metres above sea level. Hiking to the summit will take 1 hour.  Weather permitting, you will stay on the top for one hour or so.

The weather is unpredictable on the top. You can experience standing in the middle of clouds and only see Slættaratindur itself. But on a clear day you will have a fantastic view over almost all islands in the Faroe Islands from the Northernmost island to the Southernmost island.

You will have a packet lunch on the top of the Faroe Islands and also a bottle of water. The hike downhill from the top will take just under 1 hour. 

On your way back to Tórshavn, you will stop at Eiðiskollur. Here you will see the two marvellous stone formations out of the sea, "Risin and Kellingin". When heading back to Tórshavn, you will see steep mountains and several charming valleys lying side by side. There are great photo opportunities on this day tour that will bring you stunning views of the unspoiled nature in the Faroe Islands.  

Make sure to explore the beauty when standing on the top of the Faroe Islands. Add this day tour to Slættaratindur to your cart.
