Step right up to join this tour to see the famous caves and bird cliffs in Vestmanna. Jump on the bus in Tórshavn and drive along the mountain road to the village of Vestmanna. You will join the tour with the most experienced excursion company in the Faroe Islands with more than 35 years of experiences.

When you enter Vestmanna, it is time for a two hour boat trip to the Vestmanna Sea Cliffs. The towering birdcliffs North of Vestmanna are one of the most famous attractions. You will sail through narrow straits into deep caves, shaped by the surf for millions of years, and close to the high cliffs rising some 600 metres above sea level where thousands of seabirds breed.

Exploring the cliffs by the coastline of Vestmanna is a breathtaking experience. You will see free standing rock formations, caves, and deep gorges. Being in the middle of this stunning scenery will give you a sinking feeling. Weather permitting, the boat will sail into the dark and emerge on the other side of caves. 

Make sure to look up at the grassy gradients near the top where you will see sheep balancing on the near precipitous slopes. The many birds and sometimes also seals make the Vestmanna Sea Cliffs experience even greater. 

Vestmanna is the second largest village on Streymoy island. The village is situated in an amphitheatric look-alike bay and surrounded by mountains. The bay has always been a good shelter from the unpredictable weather in the Faroe Islands. After your boat trip to the breathtaking bird cliffs, you will head back South and stop by the village Kvívík where you will be told stories about the Viking settlement. 

Kvívík is nestled in a picturesque valley with steep mountain sides. If the sky is clear, you will see Egilsfjall mountain towering above the village. The stream runs from this stunning mountain all the way to the village and down to the salty sea. By the harbour lies small boat houses.

Just beside Kvívík is the vilage Leynar with its beautiful sandy beach. Leynar will be the last stop before arriving in Tórshavn again.
