Enjoy a guided hike to Trælanípa only 5 minutes away from Vagar Airport. This iconic cliff is one of the main reasons why travellers visit Faroe Islands. You will join a local guide from the nearest village who has the knowledge and experiences trekking the path to the steep cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the famous lake hanging over the salty sea.

What makes this tour unique is the combination of nature and the local guide, who knows the story, the nature and all the sheep grazing along the path to Trælanípan, the Slave Rock. Tours ar emade each day at 9am, 12pm, and 15pm.

Your tour guide is also a local shepherd and has the needed respect for both the untouched nature and the heights. The guide will show you to the right spot and will make sure that you are safe when you stand on the very edge with awesome photo opportunities. This is one of the best views in the Faroe Islands for landscapes photos.
