Original 1.5 Hour Vestmanna Sea Cliffs Boat Trip
Step aboard a quality boat and go on an unforgettable adventure to Vestmanna Sea Cliffs. On this classic Faroe Islands experience you will have the opportunity to see some of the most remarkable coastline in the Faroe Islands.
The trip departs from the harbour in Vestmanna, a village in impressive amphitheatrical settings. Vestmanna is also the tour's meeting point.
You will have the chance to enjoy the café just beside the departure point. Right next to the café you will see a selection of small fishing boats belonging to the villagers.
After everything is set, you will sail out of the harbour and head straight to the stunning sea cliffs. You will sail through breathtaking nature and explore the great wildlife just outside of Vestmanna.
The Vestmanna Sea Cliffs are a natural wonder and a must-see experience while in the Faroe Islands. Sheer mountain sides, towering sea stacks, and rich birdlife is what you will explore on this one and a half hour boat tour.
You will sail near these amazing cliffs and if weather permits, the tour will include sailing through rocky gorges. This scenic attraction will get you near to several bird species that are nesting in the narrow sloping ledges in the cliffs.
From the boat you will see high mountain peaks on the island Streymoy and many caves along the coastline. You will sail only few metres from the highest sea stack in the area Heygadrangur which rises 144 m out of the salty North Atlantic Ocean.
The boat trip along the narrow channel between sea stacks and the coast is a fascinating and unforgettable experience. There are no signs of human construction or development in this area adding to the undisturbed and untouched experience when going on the journey to the cliffs north of Vestmanna.
Explore the breathtaking cliffs of Vestmanna on this boat trip with daily departures in summer. Check availability by choosing a date.
