Sightseeing Bird Cliffs & Cruises
The bird cliffs and grottoes north of Vestmanna are one of the highlights of a trip to the Faroe Islands. The experience touches all your senses. The sounds of the sea birds, the whispering of the ocean, and the reflecting water intermingles visually with the shapes of the weather-beaten rocks that rise into peaks and touch the sky. We sail along the rock-wall, into narrow sounds where the cliffs on both sides rise perpendicularly skyward. At the very top, the sheep graze unimpressed by the scenery. As the boat glides into the grottoes, you enter another world for a moment into the darkness and the sounds of dripping water. Suddenly, you reappear on the other side – an experience you don’t want to miss.
In the summer there are tours until late in the evening. The tour takes a couple of hours and is suitable for all ages.
Remember to bring warm clothes and dress according to the weather.
