Visit the breathtaking puffin island Mykines during the summer months in the Faroe Islands. This shuttle boat will take you all the way to the island that combines breathtaking landscapes with thousands of puffins.

You will embark the boat by the harbour in the village Sørvágur on Vágar island. You will then set off from Sørvágur and take a 30 minutes memorable journey by sea. As you get closer to Mykines, you will start to see puffins flying in the air and sitting on the pristine North Atlantic ocean. This is just a warm-up to what you will experience later.

Important to know for 2022 season. The path to the lighthouse on Mykineshólmur is closed in 2022 due to a landslide. You will still see lots of puffins up-close when visiting Mykines.

When you step on Mykines, you will spend 4 hours on the island independently. In course of your hours on Mykines, you will have time for both a hike and to spot as many puffins that you will ever experience in your life. There is even time for a cup of coffee at the local Mykines café. Here you can get refreshments and a light meal before heading back to Vágar island.

You can choose between the 09:30 departure and 13:30 departure from Sørvágur. Both departures will secure you an unforgettable experience on Mykines. Your certified captain will make sure that you get a safe and enjoyable boat ride.

The boat ride is done in a boat seating 12 people. You will sit comfortable when cruising between Vágar island and Mykines island. This tour will secure you a boat ticket to the much talked about island.

Mykines is the most popular summer attraction in the Faroe Islands for good reasons. Once you are there, you will be awe-stricken in a way very few other places on earth allow. This is your chance to experience Mykines with comfort and ease.

Tick Mykines off of your bucket list with this smooth boat tour to the untouched bird island. Check availability by choosing a date.

    Everybody was great!

    Vi havde en mega fed tur!
    Vejret var med os, og jeg tror min søster og jeg var enige om at bådturen var noget af det vildeste/sjoveste vi har oplevet:)
    Selve Mykiness var en god oplevelse, men vi synes det var for lang tid, vi havde set og gået det vi skulle, så vi havde en god time hvor vi “ bare måtte vente”

  3. Dorthe Tecza

    Det var en god oplevelse. Sejlturen var fin.

    We had a great experience.
    So much fun hiking and seeing the puffins on mykines.
    The captain and his red-headed helper were very friendly and Informative.
    Finding the captain in the morning was difficult and most of the group was very late because the instructions were unclear on where to meet.
    We ended up leaving the marina late and getting picked up late from the island. (Which was no big deal to us, but I could see it being an issue to other travelers in the future).
    Thanks so much for a great experience in an unforgettable place.

    The boat trip in early May was great but unfortunately we did not see a single puffin on the island which was disappointing. There were some in the sea.

    This was absolutely fantastic. An experience of a lifetime. The crew were super and everything was spot on.
    I hope to be back one day.
