Incredible 8 Hour Guided Tour to Kalsoy & Kallur Lighthouse
Come and take your own picture of the most spectacular lighthouse in the Faroe Islands in astonishing surroundings. This is your chance to experience Kalsoy island.
On this tour you will first drive from Tórshavn at 08:15 to Klaksvík, the second biggest town in the Faroe Islands very much anchored in its fishing tradition. From Klaksvík you will take the ferry to Syðradalur on Kalsoy island. You will wait in the ferry line for an hour in order to be secured a space for the car on the small ferry.
Arriving to Kalsoy island you will make your way north on the only road on this sparsely populated island. Only 90 inhabitants dwell here year round, but the island is well served by infrastructure featuring several road tunnels connecting the four villages on this island.
You will drive north to Mikladal to visit the Seal Woman, a statue by the shore of the village Mikladalur. The statue represent the seal woman who, according to ancient Faroese legend, was forced to live with a human, but who all the time was longing to get back to live in the sea as a seal.
By the northern most village on the island, Trøllanes, you will go off-road and head for the lighthouse on foot. This is a medium mountain hike and the first part of the trail requires some effort. There is no path, but you are walking on grass and stony surface. It is highly recommended to follow your tour guide and do not undertake the hike on your own unless you are an experienced hiker.
On your way up to the lighthouse you are likely to pass sheep, mountain dwelling birds and maybe you can spot occasional hare. Underneath you is the Atlantic ocean populated by seals and other sea mammals.
The view by the lighthouse is absolute breathtaking and entirely unique. To the south you see the vertical side of the 537 m high mountain Borgarin. To the west you see Eysturoy and to the east you see the north side of Kunoy island and Viðoy island.
At the end of the day, you will head back to Tórshavn. You will spend some time at the ferry harbour on Kalsoy island to secure yourself a space for the ferry back to Klaksvík. WHen back in Klaksvík, your tour guide will take you back for Tórshavn which is an hours drive away from Klaksvík.
