Blend in with the locals and the puffins and enjoy the tranquility of Mykines Island in the evening. This overnight tour to Mykines including accommodation is a once in a lifetime experience.

In the evening, the puffins gather together for a bit of social time. You will be in the middle of this extraordinary bird happening.

You arrive in the late afternoon with the boat Jósup. Your local guesthouse hostess and guide will meet you by the boat and take you to the guesthouse. 

Here you will enjoy dinner in one of the oldest houses on Mykines Island. During dinner, your hostess will tell you the best stories and legends about this magical Island. Among others the great Mykines painter, Sámal Joensen Mikines, fishery and the state of the island and the birdlife as you see it today.

After dinner, you will pack coffee and sweets for your evening tour. Now, you are ready to meet and greet the puffins and see the sunset. 

The summer in the Faroe Islands is remarkable. During the peak of summer, there are 23 hours of light. This makes an evening tour in Mykines something truly special. 

After the evening walk, you will go back to the guesthouse, one of the oldest houses on Mykines Islands. The guesthouse dates back to 1895. You sleep under the ceiling in cosy dbl. rooms with B&B standard. The guesthouse is turfed roof.

Next morning you will have a breakfast of course served with homebaked bread and eggs from the local farmer on the island. You can then take a stroll through the village and down to the ocean. Alternatively, the tour guide can take you on one more tour to the hill to say good morning and goodbye to the puffins. You will take the boat back to Sørvágur at 11.05 in the morning.

Good to know

There are no cars in Mykines. So if you bring your own car to Sørvágur, park at the harbour (there is a large parking lot). If you take the bus to Sørvágur from Tórshavn then make sure to take Route 300 departing from the bus terminal in Tórshavn.
