Mykines is a protected Ramsar area due to its rich and varied bird-life. The puffin colony is certainly the biggest in the Faroe Islands, potentially one of the biggest in the world, and we get the chance to pass right through it. The village that once inhabited almost 200 people is now reduced to around a dozen people living on the island throughout the year. Yet the village doesn’t disappoint with its well-maintained houses, turf rooves and colour variances. 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. If the weather permits, we continue to Lambi and walk through the colony. At this point of the journey you are likely to get the chance to see the breeding pairs of puffins up-close.
