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.
