Mykines Shuttle Boat
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.
