Experience all the classic locations on Vágar, hence the name :) This tour is for those who want to maximise their experience on Vágar Island.

So you'll see, Sørvágsvatn, also known as Leitisvatn lake (Lake above the Ocean), you will hike to Trælanípa (the optical illusion spot), Bøsdalafossur (the biggest waterfall in the North Atlantic ocean).

You'll then go to the village of Bøur and see the beautiful traditional old church there, and walk between the cute old traditional turf houses where you sometimes see sheep eating grass on top of, and see the architecture and building styles.

In Bøur you'll go to the beach there overlooking Drangarnir (the island with the hole in the middle) and Tindhólm (the very narrow island til all the pointy fingers at the top).

Finally you'll head to Gásadalur and see the beautiful waterfall Múlafossur that you see on all the postcards. Here you'll see puffins nesting and other birds as well.

The tour is 4 hours and the price is calculated after that hour number. We have built this tour so that it is jam packed full with jaw-dropping sights. We cover as much seight-seeing as possible in these 4 hours.

Sometimes we need to drop a small part out of the hike, if people are too slow at hiking or need to take too many brakes, which we totally understand. Typically it's the waterfall Bøsdalafossur that we take out of the hike. This is very rare but it is a decision we sometimes need to take in order to keep the timetable and price.

You can add a lunchbox for 100 DKK pr person. It includes: Faroese bottled water or hot tee/coffee (you decide. The hot drinks are the bestsellers, since you can drink the water out if the freshwater springs that we will pass by). Some traditional Faroese Food, some classic food, fruit, and something sweet.

You can do the Classic Tour upon request. Any day at any time after 10am.

You will meet the guide at the gas station Magn in the village of Miðvágur. You can see the meeting point in Google street view. If you want to be picked up at the airport, we will do that at no extra cost.

Book this tour and let us know at what time and date you would like to do the tour and we will go on this exciting adventure on the beautiful island of Vágar :) Check availability by choosing a date.

I saw the lake lying on the sea, the waterfall and the charming village. I had a great time with tour guide. She told me many stories and her ideas. I was really impressed. I hope that her beautiful and peaceful mind will spread out in the world. And all people don’t forget that we need to take good care of nature. I will never forget about Faroe Islands

Our guide Annika was very friendly and descriptive during our excursion! The sights were absolutely amazing! The lake above the ocean, the trail until we get there, the waterfalls and in the end of our tour we had a warm cup of tea enjoying the great View of the Gasadalur Waterfall. We also tried fermented whale meat that Annika had brought with her to treat us!

Probably my best experience in the Faroes was this beautiful tour with the lovely Annika as our guide. Of course, the tour is jam-packed with breathtaking sights as promised - with an easy hike and comfortable transportation for the rest of the tour. But the real gem of the tour was our guide Annika. She was extremely helpful and accommodating, really friendly and engaging, very warm and hospitable and went above and beyond to ensure we got the full experience of the tour. She is very passionate about her homeland. She gave us an intimate insight into the reality of Faroese life with both the beauty and the hardships involved in living on these islands in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. She told us her fascinating stories and tidbits as a local - stuff you can't Google - making us feel like we were sharing into some very local secrets. She made sure that we didn't just get to see the places, but we also completely experienced it and immersed ourselves into the beautiful Nature that surrounded us. If there is one tour you have to do in the Faroes, then it has to be this one!

Absolutely lovely tour, we had the chance to get to know more about Faroe's history and traditions and our guide Jana was always willing to tell us more and more, and also took with patience many pictures of us :) Super!

The tour was great! The walk didn't seem far because the view was amazing. If you have a limited time on the islands, this is the perfect tour because you get to see all the highlights. Our guide Jana is kind and helpful too!

Our tour guide Annika was amazing. She's very accommodating and knowledgeable about the history of Faroe Islands. We truly enjoyed our day with her. Very flexible schedule. We covered a lot of places and she took us to some beautiful sites in the island of Vagar. She prepared a feast for us for lunch and have us taste some Faroese food. Will definitely recommend this tour to our family and friends.
