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.    

Explore the breathtaking cliffs of Vestmanna on this boat trip with daily departures in summer. Check availability by choosing a date.

  1. Grzegorz Kotwica

    It was an amazing trip. Beautiful cliffs seen from the sea level. Excellent boat steering skills by the captain. I recommend 🙂

  2. Julie Aakerlund Andersen

    A September day with beautiful weather conditions for sailing. Very good guide.

  3. Wojciech Lipka

    Despite the rainy and cloudy day, the tour was an amazing experience. I highly recommend it, even when the weather is not perfect 🙂

  4. Robert Djurhuus Wasa

    the trip was great. amazing views (not many puffins, though) guiding was quite ok, weather was very faroish and the high-speed return in heavy waters was very good fun. I’ll do it again

  5. Haig Agulian

    Brilliant guide explaining all the birds on the sea cliffs, weather was sunny after a brief bit of rain. Enjoyable morning tour! Guide to Faroe Høgni was extra kind to give me a ride to Vestmanna from Torshavn even though the transfer was not included.

  6. Sergio Romero

    Totally worth it.

  7. Nicole Ciacotich

    Definitely recommended! The weather was amazing so we got the most out of it – great and interesting introduction from our guide about the area, birdlife, plus some curiosities and sailing in total safety close by those breathtaking cliffs. And we even spotted a seal!

  8. John Skov

    Great trip. Amazing views on and in between the rocks. Many birds and sheeps. Super Captain and tour guide.

  9. Karl Weissenboeck

    This was a 5 star trip!

  10. Karen Newlove

    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.

  11. Levi Zelkind

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

  12. MARY A

    Amazing trip! So worth the money … Captain took us all along the sea cliffs up to Saksun! Beautiful landscape and hundreds of birds!!

  13. Aneta Caltova

    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! 🙂

  14. Star Perkins

    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!

  15. Anna Kalinina

    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)

  16. Colm Power

    We were really happy with it!

  17. Andreani

    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).

  18. Marian Tobajas

    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.

  19. Adi Wijaya

    it was beyond expectation, that the boat sailed pretty near and far to the cliffs, and that the tour wasn’t cancelled even if it was cloudy and foggy.

    the panorama itself was great. As I said, it was foggy but it added the mysteriousness.

  20. Philip Davenport

    Really lucky with the weather, amazing to see the cliffs so close up- too early for loads of birds but that’s when we could come, not their fault!
    Guides full of knowledge and happy to share, we could see 7 of the islands at one point!

  21. Julie B

    SPECTACULAR TRIP! We just booked it to fill up some time. It was absolutely fantastic. We had no idea. The scenery was beyond words. Additionally, the captain skillfully steered us into some magical caves and around cliffs. Lots of birds flying all around. It was totally wonderful. Highly recommend.

  22. Jessie

    The Vestmanna Sea Cliffs tour was truly incredible. The landscapes and cliffs were absolutely breathtaking, and the tour guide/captain was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and Faroe Island history- I learned a lot! I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting the islands, especially those looking to experience the incredible country from the water. Thank you everyone on the “Guide to Faroe Islands” team!

  23. Lis Jensen

    This was a fantastic experience. The weather could be better but the Faroe Islands are beautiful no matter how the weather is.

  24. Andre Louis

    A lot of happy souvenirs are now coming back in my memory !!!

    One of the best experiences in Faroe has been the tour to Vestmanna cliffs. It was simply fantastic! What landscapes!

  25. Raphael Linker

    We loved it. Everything was so beautiful. Highly recommend it.

    We loved our entire 12 day trip to Faroe Islands. The islands, the people, the history, the culture the wild flowers.

    Everything.

  26. Michal Cinka

    Perfect and exhaustive.

  27. Ole Græsbøll Olesen

    Rigtig god tur med god guidning.

  28. Michael VanOrden

    My wife and I really enjoyed the tour to Vestmanna Sea Cliffs. The boat tour fully met our expectations. It is a ‘’must do’’ for everyone visiting the Faroe Islands and I highly recommend it.

  29. Sara Fridell

    As boat people we were mighty impressed by the navigation by the captain. Takes some serious skills to round cliffs and enter caves like that with such a big vessel. We also appreciated the fact that he had all passengers in mind and made sure you got a great view from wherever you were seated. Of course the islands are beautiful right, left and centre but still, the captain made sure no-one would miss anything.

    We would recommend that tour in a heartbeat!

  30. Rainer

    It was a wonderful trip and experience. Certainly worth coming.
    Would do it again!

  31. Lilibeth

    The Vestmanna boat trip was amazing, I would gladly and highly recommend it to others.
    I look forward to visiting and exploring more of your beautiful country in the future.

  32. Thomas Truby

    I enjoyed the Vestmanna trip. Not a huge number of birds but the cliffs are quite scenic.

  33. Julie Boyd

    We absolutely loved the Vestmanna Sea Cliffs tour. It was one of the best things we did while in the Faroe Islands. The boat captain was great and the person speaking was perfect (not sure if it was a different person or the captain).

  34. Theodor Schaller

    We just loved the tour, a wonderful adventure. We learned so much about seagrass eating sheep, cliff climbing, catching of too fat seabirds (during our tour in Faeroe Islands we saw many more places where the birds were being prepared for “winter food”) and the scenery along the coastline was magnificent especially with the mystique of low hanging fog and clouds.

    An experience long to remember and I rediscovered a new side of your scenic islands after my second visit in 2003.

    A big “bravo” to Vestmanna Sea Cliffs, Faeroe and the most friendly people on earth.

  35. Erna Smittenberg

    It was my birthday and I had an amazing trip! You can’t control the weather… so it was foggy when we started and at the end the sun was shining!

    The captain did a awesome job, sailing into the rocks/caves! Woooow!! Splendid landscape!

    Thank You!!!

    We loved the Faroeur!
