Extraordinary 8 Hour Hike to Mount Villingadalsfjall
Experience the breathtaking mountain scenery in the northern tip of the Faroe Islands hundreds of metres above the beautiful village Viðareiði. This is the perfect hike for those who are looking for an unforgettable trip in unspoiled nature.
You will be picked up in Tórshavn in the morning. From Tórshavn, you will head north to the most northernly village in the Faroe Islands, Viðareiði on the island of Viðoy.
From Viðareiði you will start your hike up to the top of the third highest mountain of the Faroe Islands. The impressive mount Villingadalsfjall elevates 841 m above the North Atlantic Ocean.
The hike from the village Viðareiði to the summit takes 2 hours. You will enjoy an impressive view over all the northern islands along the route to the summit. Expect panoramic views of the islands Fugloy, Svínoy, Borðoy, Kunoy, and Kallsoy.
It is a quite steep hike but your local tour guide will make sure that you are safe at all time. The view is rewarding!
When on the peak, you will be served a delicious packed lunch. Enjoying a sandwich and refreshments in these other worldly surroundings is as epic as it gets.
From the top of Villingadalsfjall you have a splendid view over the beautiful Villingadalur valley on the north side. This iconic mountain is definitely worth all the effort in order to get to the top.
Once you have soaked in the view and fresh air on Villingadalsfjall, you will start descending the mountain. The path goes downhill all the time. You will have some short breaks on the route to have some rest and to benefit from the breathtaking views right in front of you.
Back in the village, you will take the one hour drive back to Tórshavn. Your tour guide will drop you off at the end of the day.
