Experience some of the most beautiful attractions in Vagar island starting in a kayak. When renting your very own kayak, you have the chance to take an extraordinary route to see the famous sights Trælanípa and Bøsdalafossur. Land the kayak at the end of the lake and go ashore to see the unbelievable views.

The lake Leitisvatn is the largest lake in the Faroe Islands stretching 6 km from one end to the other. The lake is just beside Vagar airport. Your kayak adventure will start from some old turf-roofed stone houses near the village Miðvágur. You can see the meeting point when looking through the photos of the tour.

The ride from the stone houses to the end of the lake towards the ocean and Bøsdalafossur waterfall takes one hour or so. The ride to the lake's edge towards the North Atlantic Ocean  is an epic paddling experience. 

You can go ashore and relax while you experience the waterfall Bøsdalafossur and the slave cliff Trælanípa. Bøsdalafossur plunges into the fresh salty ocean and Trælanípa is where you will get the iconic view of the lake Leitisvatn hanging over the ocean.

A stop at Trælanípan and Bøsdalafossur is a must for those travelling to the Faroe Islands. Besides taking in the sights at Trælanípan and Bøsdalfossur, you will have a unique chance to immerse yourself in the untouched nature in your own rented kayak.

You will paddle in the safest kayak on the market and in the most easy to use kayak. When on the lake you can enjoy the remoteness and silence in the middle of unspoiled landscapes. Renting a kayak on the lake Leitisvatn is for those seeking something extra on their vacation in the Faroe Islands.

Starting from the stone houses near Miðvágur, you can paddle as you like in your kayak. Leitisvatn is a freshwater lake that you most likely have seen on many pictures of the Faroe Islands.

Discover some of the wonders in the Faroe Islands by renting a kayak that will bring you to the unique attractions Trælanípa and Bøsdalafossur. Check availability by choosing a date.
