Good to know:

This tour starts on the harbour in the village Sørvágur. The ferry to Mykines sails from Sørvágur. The ferry sails at 10 o'clock in the morning and then again at 13 o'clock. Remember to be at the harbour in good time. We recommend you to be at the harbour twenty minutes before departure so be there at 09.40 o'clock or at 12:40 o'clock depending on which tour you will do.

You will get your personal ferry ticket that will secure you a seat onboard the ferry to Mykines. When you have received the ticket and found yourself a seat on the ferry, you can have a coffee or a cup of tea while getting closer to Mykines. Keep the ticket as you will use it again when returning back to the island Vagar.

The hike to the lighthouse will take approximately two hours. Every corner of the hike is just mind blowing. There will be puffins all over the place.

When hiking back to the village from the lighthouse your tour guide will most likely take a different route where you will have the chance to get close to the beautiful bird Gannets.

When back in the village, you can relax for 1-2 hours before jumping onboard the boat again to Sørvágur. There are two local cafes in Mykines and you will have the opportunity to get some nice food and beverages.

The ferry departures from Mykines at 5 o'clock in the evening for those how depart from Sørvágur at 10 o'clock and those who will sail to Mykines from Sørvágur at 13 o'clock will take the late ferry from Mykines at 19 o'clock in the evening. Remember to be at the small harbour in Mykines 20 minutes before departure.

This tour was the best! Before we got on the ferry, they gave us our lunches. (The lunch was so yummy!) The guide met us at the dock & gave us a little tour before we started our hike up! She was so friendly & didn't mind if we stopped to take pictures throughout the hike. There were tons of puffins when we got to the top! We stopped at the shop before leaving & was greeted by the sweet owner! Everyone was just friendly & it made this trip even better! If you're on the fence about booking this tour...just book it! You won't regret it!

Our guide, Björk was lovely and informative. She met us with our names handwritten on signs. We had more than ample time to take photos, linger, ask questions, stare in awe and ponder. There was one incredible vista after another. There are multiple trails leading to and away from the lighthouse, and I think the one she chose tells the best story visually speaking. The packed lunch was tasty. The weather is obviously out of anyone’s control but we had perfect weather the entire time. The pace of everything felt right, and I don’t know what the cap is but our group size (5) was great and this was August 14, 2019. Would absolutely recommend and I’d do the exact same tour every time.

This tour was amazing — the highlight of our trip. I WISH I could remember our guide’s name; he was an absolutely lovely man. He lived on the island for many years as a farmer, so he could speak to both the history of the place and his own experience there. It was a reasonably small group — about ten people. For some reason, there were not very many puffins on our visit, though there were a few. I heard someone say that her friend had gone on a tour the week before and seen a bunch, so we might have been unlucky with the weather or timing. They are very difficult to photograph in flight but are extremely cute. A few hiccups: the tour company had no record of our booking, and there was no one waiting for us at the ferry to provide the ticket that was included in our booking. We found a guy wearing a jacket with the tour company logo and explained, and he gave us some tickets and a bagged lunch. The guides waiting at Mykines also had no record of our booking, so they added us to a random tour. Despite the organizational issues, the guys all made it work and were very cheerful. As one guide said, problems exist to be solved. Overall, I would definitely recommend this tour but would also recommend that you do some confirmation close to the tour date to avoid some of the issues we experienced.

Just a quick note to say thank you for organizing & hosting our trip to Mykines. The lady who greeted us with our ferry tickets & lunches was gorgeous, the healthy fresh lunch fantastic, the skipper & crew of the boat professional & attentive, our guide warm, friendly & highly informative. All in all an unforgettable experience. Considering the unmeasurable value of the island ecosystem & diverse sensitivities, it is my hope & strong belief that all visitations to the island should by necessity involve a company such as yours to reduce future impact, particularly on Puffin/Lundi populations/nesting sites.
