    We had a great day with Johan. He was very knowledgeable about his country and shared lots of amusing stories. He was an accommodating guide and offered to stop at spots for us as needed.

    Truly an Inspiring Hike

    Johan is the very best! My sister and I had an exceptional day hiking with Johan and learning all about the Faroe Islands. Firstly, I will just say that Johan is exceptionally competent and has a deep knowledge of the Faroes (we learned so much!). The whole day was really well done — a pickup directly from our hotel in Torshavn, then off to see some exceptional vistas, the hike to see the optical illusion lake above the ocean, then off to another gorgeous setting to enjoy a very delicious sandwich (excellent bakery bread!) and Faroese lemon soda, and finally a stop at the famous waterfall that you very often see when you look up the Faroes. We had booked a horseback riding excursion just after, and Johan very kindly took us directly there! We could not have had a better day. Also, if you are looking for a more personalized hike, this is the one for you. The group size was five total, so it was lovely as we weren’t being carted around on the big tour buses. Huge thanks for a wonderfully memorable day.

    Johan is the best! Had such a great time on this tour. Love that Johan only takes small groups so the tour feels really personalized and you feel like you’re traveling with a group of new friends and not on a big travel tour. Everyone on my tour had already been in the Faroe Islands for several days, so rather than go over the same basic facts about the Islands, Johan really tried to give us more interesting stories and insights and was great about answering any questions we had. He was also incredibly helpful for some of the group that weren’t sure about how to get around the islands for other tours they had booked. I can’t say enough good things about Johan and this incredibly fun tour. Just be aware it’s more of a 6 hour tour than 5 hour (Johan has tried to get this listing updated to note this). Five stars all around!

    The views were spectacular and Simon our tour guide was very personable. The hike was exactly as advertised. Would do this excursion again. The lunch provided was delicious!

    Johan, our amazing guide that not only friendly, but also with a good sense of humour & plenty knowlege about Faroe Islands. Amazing journey and definitely one of the highlight tour 😊 Takk fyri Johan

  6. Laura

    We had an amazing time. Johan knows the best spots to see all what’s worthy in Vágar. You’ll see stunning landscapes and waterfalls, you’ll hike and he’ll bring you to a beautiful beach to have lunch. Moreover, he does the guides in small groups, what I think is a plus.

  7. Maria Berrueta

    You must take this tour! The views are amazing and Johan is a great and friendly guide! He went above and beyond to make sure we all had a great time. I am not a hiker and he helped me with my struggles along the way. We had a wonderful day!

  8. John Homer

    Great day, only 2 of us and Johan really tailored the day to our needs. Amazing hike and sights. Johan is a great guy and a safe pair of hands. We learned a lot from him and wish to thank him very much.

  9. Tore Lauritzen

    Easy review. Nice trip. Johan is very talkative, polite, easygoing and clearly knows a lot about the area and the faroe islands in general. A very good guide who i’d gladly recommend to anyone.

  10. Judit Hedelius

    Johan is a great guide! Friendly, knowledgeable, easy-going, and he has a great route for you. The trip never gets awkward because he’s very entertaining with a lot of faroese facts.
    The best investment in a guided tour with him ever. -A frequent traveller-

  11. Stephanie Hedelius

    It was an amazing tour with an even more amazing guide! Johan was all you could ask for in a guide, and he is the kindest faroese you will ever meet! The best spent money ever

  12. Rohit Bagchi

    The tour with Johan was also great. Because i already have seen one waterfall he decide me bring me to sightseeing (oldtown a bit outside the city) in stead of it and that was really cool. 5 out of 5 stars.

  13. Satoshi Akiyama

    Jóhan was a great coordinator of tour! He has wonderful knowledge about Faroe Islands. It made me super good trip. If I visit there again, Definitely I need his guide.
    Thanks Jóhan!

  14. Willian Braga

    It was a remarkable experience! During the trip, I have learned a lot about the Faroe Island about history, culture, lifestyle, the economics and so on.

    The places were also magnificent and pleasant to see. I took so many pictures during this travel
