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. You will have the chance to enjoy the café just beside the departure point and right next to the café you will also 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 you will be sailed 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.

    The Vestmanna boat tour was great, I really enjoyed it 🙂

  2. Alexa Vardy

    Just beautiful!

  3. Erwin Pals

    Oh, the boat tour was fantastic! Also because of the nice sunny weather. All week it was rather rainy and foggy but on my last day the sun showed itself! Beautiful!!!!

    I was most excited for this trip of any during our stay in the Faroes. Unfortunately it was quite disappointing; they overbook the boats so that you are packed on like sardines. They ask people once or twice not to stand, but an entire tour bus that boarded our boat was standing in front of us for the entire time so that we couldn’t see. They only go through the grottoes on the way there, so by the time the boat turned around and we would’ve been able to see, we didn’t see the grottoes and caves and we’re going much faster. Please consider booking fewer people per boat so that customers can see and have a little wiggle room!!

    We had been looking forward to seeing the amazing bird life on the cliffs that was clearly advertised in all the tourist brochures. The boat trip itself was excellent and the Guide was very informative but we hardly saw any birds at all. Our trip took place on 30th April and clearly this was too early to see the birds as the majority of them hadn’t arrived! It would have been useful to have been given this information as the company running the tour must know this. The cliffs themselves were spectacular and we would have booked the trip regardless.

  6. Robert Svardal-Stelmer

    The boat trip was great, spectacular view of the witch finger and caves, and very comfortable boat
    Thanks so much 👍🏼😉

    It was a really lovely tour — a perfect introduction to the Faroe Islands. 🙂

  18. Delia Chia

    The trip was absolutely amazing — really appreciated the commentary done in English so that international tourist could understand too, and it was a real treat to be able to enter & get close to some of the really cool cliffs & rock formations

  19. Lanie Theis

    We really enjoyed the Vestmanna Sea Cliffs tour and recommended it to a couple of other groups of tourists that we ran into during the week. Thanks again for accommodating our flight cancellation and rebooking us another day.

  20. Marianne Ellegaard

    Turen var fin!

  21. Anne-Mieke Zigterman

    It was great!

  22. Brecht Persoons

    We had a fantastic time in the Faroe Islands and the Vestmanna Bird cliff Tour was one of the favourites of everybody in our group (except for 1 who got seasick 😉). The rain made it more special, because of all the waterfalls. I would everybody who is visiting the Faroe Islands recommend your trip.

  23. Jonas Mannerfelt

    It was my third time. Always Enjoyable!

  24. Marion van Loon

    I enjoyd the boat trip!

  25. Esteban

    I enjoyed the tour very much. Also really enjoyed the guide!

  26. Charli Petersen

    Det var en super tur, klipperne var smukke og kaptajnen var rigtig god til at fortælle undervejs. højdepunktet var helt klart sælgrotten hvor en 4-5 sæler kom ud for at kigge på os 🙂

  27. Camilla

    En rigtig god oplevelse og virkelig god guide

  28. Annie Hu

    It was quite a thrilling boat ride. Had a lot of giggles getting splashed by the Atlantic Ocean. Thank you!

  29. Justin

    it was an amazing experience! Thank you!

  30. Manny Winkler

    It was so great thank you so much 🙂

  31. Henrik Jørgensen

    Det var en fantastisk flot tur, og vi var heldige med godt vejr.
    Det er helt sikker, at vi kommer igen.

  32. Erna Smittenberg

    It was my birthday and I had an amazing trip! You can’t control the weather… so it was foggy when we started and at the end the sun was shining!

    The captain did a awesome job, sailing into the rocks/caves! Woooow!! Splendid landscape!

    Thank You!!!

    We loved the Faroeur!

  33. Theodor Schaller

    We just loved the tour, a wonderful adventure. We learned so much about seagrass eating sheep, cliff climbing, catching of too fat seabirds (during our tour in Faeroe Islands we saw many more places where the birds were being prepared for “winter food”) and the scenery along the coastline was magnificent especially with the mystique of low hanging fog and clouds.

    An experience long to remember and I rediscovered a new side of your scenic islands after my second visit in 2003.

    A big “bravo” to Vestmanna Sea Cliffs, Faeroe and the most friendly people on earth.

  34. Julie Boyd

    We absolutely loved the Vestmanna Sea Cliffs tour. It was one of the best things we did while in the Faroe Islands. The boat captain was great and the person speaking was perfect (not sure if it was a different person or the captain).

  35. Thomas Truby

    I enjoyed the Vestmanna trip. Not a huge number of birds but the cliffs are quite scenic.

  36. Lilibeth

    The Vestmanna boat trip was amazing, I would gladly and highly recommend it to others.
    I look forward to visiting and exploring more of your beautiful country in the future.

  37. Rainer

    It was a wonderful trip and experience. Certainly worth coming.
    Would do it again!

  38. Sara Fridell

    As boat people we were mighty impressed by the navigation by the captain. Takes some serious skills to round cliffs and enter caves like that with such a big vessel. We also appreciated the fact that he had all passengers in mind and made sure you got a great view from wherever you were seated. Of course the islands are beautiful right, left and centre but still, the captain made sure no-one would miss anything.

    We would recommend that tour in a heartbeat!

  39. Michael VanOrden

    My wife and I really enjoyed the tour to Vestmanna Sea Cliffs. The boat tour fully met our expectations. It is a ‘’must do’’ for everyone visiting the Faroe Islands and I highly recommend it.

  40. Ole Græsbøll Olesen

    Rigtig god tur med god guidning.

  41. Michal Cinka

    Perfect and exhaustive.

  42. Raphael Linker

    We loved it. Everything was so beautiful. Highly recommend it.

    We loved our entire 12 day trip to Faroe Islands. The islands, the people, the history, the culture the wild flowers.


  43. Andre Louis

    A lot of happy souvenirs are now coming back in my memory !!!

    One of the best experiences in Faroe has been the tour to Vestmanna cliffs. It was simply fantastic! What landscapes!

  44. Lis Jensen

    This was a fantastic experience. The weather could be better but the Faroe Islands are beautiful no matter how the weather is.

  45. Jessie

    The Vestmanna Sea Cliffs tour was truly incredible. The landscapes and cliffs were absolutely breathtaking, and the tour guide/captain was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and Faroe Island history- I learned a lot! I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting the islands, especially those looking to experience the incredible country from the water. Thank you everyone on the “Guide to Faroe Islands” team!

  46. Julie B

    SPECTACULAR TRIP! We just booked it to fill up some time. It was absolutely fantastic. We had no idea. The scenery was beyond words. Additionally, the captain skillfully steered us into some magical caves and around cliffs. Lots of birds flying all around. It was totally wonderful. Highly recommend.

  47. Philip Davenport

    Really lucky with the weather, amazing to see the cliffs so close up- too early for loads of birds but that’s when we could come, not their fault!
    Guides full of knowledge and happy to share, we could see 7 of the islands at one point!

  48. Adi Wijaya

    it was beyond expectation, that the boat sailed pretty near and far to the cliffs, and that the tour wasn’t cancelled even if it was cloudy and foggy.

    the panorama itself was great. As I said, it was foggy but it added the mysteriousness.

  49. Marian Tobajas

    The cliffs were awesome! And it was very funny to see the sheeps even in some unexpected parts of the cliffs. The staff at the vestmanna tourist centre was very nice, they answered all the questions we had.

  50. Andreani

    Great trip with an amazing view on the cliffs in the north of Westmanna. Very clear explications. This day we were very lucky with the weather (no rain except a few minutes before back).

  51. Colm Power

    We were really happy with it!

  52. Anna Kalinina

    It was a really breathtaking tour:

    – very beautiful high mountains,
    – lots of birds flying around,
    – my first acquaintance with puffins,
    – a small human dissolved in the universe,
    – interesting information from the guide about the place and birds.

    Thank you very much fot the tour, I’m thinking of visiting this wonderful place again)

  53. Star Perkins

    The views were incredible… unbelievable how the captain maneuvered the boat between narrow sea stacks…. the ocean was a beautiful blue, many nesting birds including puffins! Narrative in perfect English as well as Faroeiese I believe. Worth every penny!

  54. Aneta Caltova

    Amazing experience! Big respect for the captain – even when the sea was quite rough, the sail was smooth and he managed to show us most of the caves. Thank you for all the stories provided during the sail. Would repeat it for sure! 🙂

  55. Mary Armstrong

    Amazing trip! So worth the money … Captain took us all along the sea cliffs up to Saksun! Beautiful landscape and hundreds of birds!!

  56. Levi Zelkind

    Great tour. The best way to see the famous Cliffs. Well organized and well conducted. With the money.
    Highly recommended.

  57. Karen Newlove

    It was a fantastic trip. We went on the bird warching trip from Vestmanna on the 15th of August.

    The weather was great, hardly any wind, and the captain knew his boat and engine, so it was an experience that we will recommend to others.

  58. Karl Weissenboeck

    This was a 5 star trip!

  59. John Skov

    Great trip. Amazing views on and in between the rocks. Many birds and sheeps. Super Captain and tour guide.

  60. Nicole Ciacotich

    Definitely recommended! The weather was amazing so we got the most out of it – great and interesting introduction from our guide about the area, birdlife, plus some curiosities and sailing in total safety close by those breathtaking cliffs. And we even spotted a seal!

  61. Sergio Romero

    Totally worth it.

  62. Haig Agulian

    Brilliant guide explaining all the birds on the sea cliffs, weather was sunny after a brief bit of rain. Enjoyable morning tour! Guide to Faroe Høgni was extra kind to give me a ride to Vestmanna from Torshavn even though the transfer was not included.

  63. Robert Djurhuus Wasa

    the trip was great. amazing views (not many puffins, though) guiding was quite ok, weather was very faroish and the high-speed return in heavy waters was very good fun. I’ll do it again

  64. Wojciech Lipka

    Despite the rainy and cloudy day, the tour was an amazing experience. I highly recommend it, even when the weather is not perfect 🙂

  65. Julie Aakerlund Andersen

    A September day with beautiful weather conditions for sailing. Very good guide.

  66. Grzegorz Kotwica

    It was an amazing trip. Beautiful cliffs seen from the sea level. Excellent boat steering skills by the captain. I recommend 🙂
