Thrilling 1.5 Hour Kittiwakes and Caves Boat Tour to Hestur Island
Experience the unspoiled cliffs on Hestur from an amazing perspective. This boat tour will take you to one of the most remote locations inhabited only by birds and seals.
You will get close to puffins and other fascinating birds living along the massive cliff wall on Hestur island. Weather permitting, you will also sail into huge basalt caves. If the sea is calm and weather good, you will get the unique opportunity to enter the Klæmintsgjógv cave which is the largest grotto in the world.
This is an exciting and thrilling way to experience one of the small islands in the country. You will sail all the way around the island. From the highest point, you will look some 1200 feet up the sheer cliff to the edge where multi-coloured sheep are grassing.
From the ferry port in Gamlarætt outside of Tórshavn, you will go on an adrenaline packed adventure in a high speed rib boat. Your experienced captain will make sure to get you safely to some of the most impressive sights that the Faroe Islands have to offer.
The ferry port in Gamlarætt is only a fifteen minutes drive from the capital. You can either park your car at the harbour in Gamlarætt or take the bus from Tórshavn to the meeting point.
The boat will take you from Streymoy island over the fjord to Hestur within only minutes. Feel the rush and energy when the captain heads towards the stunning scenery in Hestur island.
The solid constructed boat is made for adventure and for the rugged landscapes on Hestur island. You will also see basalt columns as tall as castles. This area is rich in nesting seabirds. This is a highly recommended activity by travellers to the Faroe Islands.
