Come along for a cruise to Nólsoy - the island outside Tórshavn. Enjoy the fantastic views and the fresh salty sea air. Escorted by the sea birds, you will visit the majestic cliffs of Nólsoy and return to the harbour enriched and refreshed.

The crew will greet you once you jump on board the ship in Tórshavn. Remember to be dressed in layers as it can be quite cold to stand on the deck on a ship out in the middle of the North Atlantic ocean even though it is summer.

Joining this three-hour cruise will give you a true feeling of the down-to-earth lifestyle in the Faroe Islands. This is the perfect way to spend the morning not only in an exceptional landscape but in perfect solitude.

Enjoy the peace and quiet as you head out of Tórshavn to the unspoiled island with vast wildlife. As the captain slowly sails along the majestic cliffs, it is time to switch off and find stillness. There is no better place to slow down away from the stresses of everyday life than being onboard this Faroese schooner built in the Faroe Islands in the mid-20th century.   

Do not miss this unique opportunity to experience the Faroe Islands from sea. Set sail to the meeting point for this cruise at the boat harbour Undir Bryggjubakka in Tórshavn. Check availability by choosing a date.

    The old ship dealing with the waves and wind felt really majestic. Being able to walk around in Nólsoy halfway through was a great break from the rocking on the sea.
    It would have been nice if the skipper/captain told some stories about the ship itself and the sights along the tour.

    This was such a wonderful tour… I keep warm and safe images and memories of it that will remain engraved in my memory for a long time !!!… Marvellous sea landscapes… Faroe Islands and specialy Nolsoy are like a deep treasure for my heart. The crew, as well as all Faroese people, were really very friendly and warm. Many many thanks to them !!! I hope I’ll have chance to come back once again on Faroe Islands. Yves from France
