Based on 12 traveller reviews

Step aboard a boat and go on an unforgettable adventure to Vestmanna Sea Cliffs. On this classic Faroe Islands experience you will have the opportunity to see some of the most remarkable coastline in the Faroe Islands.

The trip departures from the harbour in Vestmanna, a village in impressive amphitheatrical setting. You will have the chance to enjoy the café just beside the departure point and right next to the café you will also see a selection of small fishing boats belonging to the villagers.

After everything is set, you will sail out of the harbour and head straight to the stunning sea cliffs. You will sail through breathtaking nature and explore the great wildlife just outside of Vestmanna.

The Vestmanna Sea Cliffs are a natural wonder and a must-see experience while in the Faroe Islands. Sheer mountain sides, towering sea stacks, and rich birdlife is what you will explore on this one and a half hour boat tour.

You will sail near these amazing cliffs and if weather permits you will be sailed through rocky gorges. This scenic attraction will get you near to several bird species that are nesting in the narrow sloping ledges in the cliffs.

From the boat you will see high mountain peaks on the island Streymoy and many caves along the coastline. You will sail only few metres from the highest sea stack in the area Heygadrangur which rises 144 m out of the salty North Atlantic Ocean.

The boat trip along the narrow channel between sea stacks and the coast is a fascinating and unforgettable experience. There are no signs of human construction or development in this area adding to the undisturbed and untouched experience when going on the journey to the cliffs north of Vestmanna.

It was a fantastic trip. We went on the bird warching trip from Vestmanna on the 15th of August. The weather was great, hardly any wind, and the captain knew his boat and engine, so it was an experience that we will recommend to others.

Great tour. The best way to see the famous Cliffs. Well organized and well conducted. With the money. Highly recommended.

Amazing trip! So worth the money … Captain took us all along the sea cliffs up to Saksun! Beautiful landscape and hundreds of birds!!
Edit review
Amazing experience! Big respect for the captain - even when the sea was quite rough, the sail was smooth and he managed to show us most of the caves. Thank you for all the stories provided during the sail. Would repeat it for sure! :-)
Edit review
The views were incredible... unbelievable how the captain maneuvered the boat between narrow sea stacks.... the ocean was a beautiful blue , many nesting birds including puffins! Narrative in perfect English as well as Faroeiese I believe. Worth every penny!
Edit review
It was a really breathtaking tour: - very beautiful high mountains, - lots of birds flying around, - my first acquaintance with puffins, - a small human dissolved in the universe, - interesting information from the guide about the place and birds. Thank you very much fot the tour, I'm thinking of visiting this wonderful place again)

Great trip with an amazing view on the cliffs in the north of Westmanna. Very clear explications. This day we were very lucky with the weather (no rain except a few minutes before back).

The cliffs were awesome! And it was very funny to see the sheeps even in some unexpected parts of the cliffs. The staff at the vestmanna tourist centre was very nice, they answered all the questions we had.
