Wonders of Vágar Island | Authentic Experiences in Small Groups

Offering some of the most striking views in the Faroe Islands, the Wonders of Vágar Island tour should be on any visitor’s to-do list. Our tour includes Trælanípan the slave cliff, the village of Gásadalur and a lunch. This popular island is rich in history and legends. Our tour also includes some of the most celebrated waterfalls and viewpoints in the Faroe Islands, and great foot to boot. All in a one-day experience.   A mountain look-out Pick-up starts at 8h30 and we will head straight out of Tórshavn driving over the mountain road towards the tunnel to Vágar Island. The old mountain road is known for its beautiful scenery, and, at Norðadalsskarð we will stop for a short break to stretch our legs and enjoy the beautiful view over the fjord, before continuing on to Vágar Island through the Faroe Islands’ first sub-sea tunnel.   A famous waterfall Our first stop on Vágar Island will be a visit to the fairy-tale village Gásadalur, home to the breathtaking waterfall Múlafossur, providing one of the most majestic views in the Faroe Islands. Gásadalurs scenic charm has long been recognised, for example it was used in the Swedish movie The Birdcatcher’s Son, a film based on a local folktale from the early 1800’s, yet it was only in 2006 that a mountain tunnel to Gásadalur made it possible to drive to the village. Before then the locals had to hike the mountain every time they needed to leave the village.   The hovering lake and the slave cliff From Gásadalur we’ll take you on a hike along the largest lake in the Faroe Islands – Leitisvatn - up to Trælanípan from where you’ll have a stunning view of the Faroes’ famous ‘hovering lake’ – Leitisvatn. This famous lake is perched high on a cliff above the sea giving the optical illusion of it floating. Trælanípan translates as slave cliff in English. According to legend, disobedient slaves and other rule-breakers in the Viking age were pushed of the 142-meter-high cliff as punishment. In addition to the famous view of the hovering lake you can also look out to the ocean from Trælanípan and see five of the Faroes’ southern Islands. We’ll take lunch in this stunning and scenic landscape.     Sea stacks and waterfalls On the hike we’ll also see the 30-meter-high Bøsdalafossur waterfall which tumbles directly into the North Atlantic Ocean.  We’ll also get to see the impressive sight of the free standing sea stack Geituskoradrangur.   The hike takes about 3 hours in total and is not difficult. Upon completion of the hike we’ll head back to Tórshavn where we will arrive at approximately 17:00 – in good time for an evening to enjoy our capital city.   This extensive one-day excursion will cover some of the most beautiful places the Faroe Islands has to offer. It is tailor-made for smaller groups as we focus on creating personal experiences you won’t find anywhere else. Our local guides are knowledgeable and well-prepared. Along with their commentary along the way, they will be happy to take your questions and engage in conversation to make sure you get the most out of your tour.

According to an old Faroese adage the quality of the fish is best in the months that have an "R" in them - meaning September until April. This time of year the weather is perfect for wind-drying - an ancient conserving method. Winter is also the best time for making fish cakes!

The surrounding high mountains shelter from north-westerly winds. Sailing close to the shore you see the varied landscape with ravines and grottoes. Keep your eyes open to seals as they have this area as their natural habitat. Up on the steep slopes you see the semi-wild grazing sheep. You procede to Bergsmunnin and see the view east towards the island of Svínoy. Sailing further along this spectacular coastline you near “Bergið”. Of the coast by Bergið you cast your fishing line! Typical fish in area are Atlantic cod, Haddock and Saithe, but sometimes you may catch Ling, Tusk and Redfish.  At a certain location you will try to catch the beautiful “Reyðfiskur” – a variation of the Atlantic Cod that assumes the red colours of it’s seaweed habitat. Weather permitting you may cross the fiord towards Lishøvdi and cast your fishing line there. Should you be blessed by mother nature with a catch, you get to take fish with you to prepare for a wonderful meal! Nowhere on the planet can you find fish as tasty and fresh as this!

We departure from Tórshavn at 9h00 (pick-up starts at 8:30) and drive to Sørvágur to catch the ferry departing to Mykines at 10h20. If the weather permits it, the ferry-ride will be an experience in itself as we pass the sea stacks Drangarnir and the islands of Tindhólmur and Gáshólmur. Upon arrival, our first stop is the village café for a short break and the chance to buy refreshments. We then start the hike by heading uphill to the monument established for those who passed away at sea. Next we reach our first viewpoint ─ the largest puffin colony in the Faroe Islands.
