    This has to be my bravest thing I ever did, walking on cliffs with slippery grass without rails could be scary for those afraid of heights, and it is the safest to travel with an experienced guide than going on your own.
    Great views takes great risk, that scenery above is taken on the cliff, so brace yourself

    The hike is absolutely beautiful and very easy going with a very small gradient. The guide was great for all my tours I booked. I booked group tours and ended up being the only tourist and getting private tours each day!! This was my last tour with them, the lake over the ocean is absolutely stunning, like a optical illusion. The tour guide was also very friendly and easy to get along with and will easily keep you entertained with which ever topic you want to talk about. I booked three tours with him and ended up learning so much more, then just the Faroe Islands when it comes to the tours but we talked about religion, economics, cuisine, politics and so much more regarding the islands. It was a great trip, highly recommend. There is a beautiful place on the cliff to have lunch and see the calm lake over the roaring ocean.

    After seeing many pictures of the Faroe Islands, this tour was a fantastic experience to be able to see these sights in person. Martin had great local knowledge of the area and gave interesting insights throughout as a Faroese person. The guide was professional and made the tour an engaging experience. The hike out to Trælanípa was excellent as was seeing the waterfall in Gasadalur, even with grey clouds the views were spectacular. The day was one of the highlights of the trip!

    This tour was just amazing! The tour guides were professional and knowledgeable. We got to see the beautiful waterfall and optical illusion lake. Also, there’re some surprises at the end of the tour. I appreciate that and I would say this is a must-do if you ever go to Faroe Islands!
