A great tour with Tummas as a very good guide.
A fantastic hike through marvellous and unspoiled nature
I never felt insecure in the mountains, even though I’m afraid of heights

We had a great trip with nice weather and a good Guide. It was a perfect day ashore. Coming in with a cruise ship I really recommend this tour. Perfectly organized and a good change away from the masses.
We had an absolute blast with David! Such an incredible guy who has so much knowledge about the islands. It doesn’t feel like you on a tour, it just feels like your driving around the island with a friend. He’s also awesome for pulling over whenever you spot a good photo opt which I though was great
My wife and I recently went on the “Faroe Islands Highlights” tour with Heimdal Tours. We didn’t have much time in the Faroe Islands, and also didn’t have a car, so were hoping to see as much as possible in a one-day guided tour. David, our tour guide and also co-owner of Heimdal, provided exactly that. He was well-informed, professional, and extremely personable. During the seven hour tour, we thoroughly explored the two largest islands, Streymoy and Esturoy, visiting some of the most beautiful sites on the Faroe Islands, including the villages of Saksun, Tjørnuvík, and Gjøgv. Along the way David provided great commentary, ranging from historical facts to personal anecdotes about his life on the islands (he’s an expat from the UK). We even managed to squeeze in an impromptu pit stop for coffee at his lovely Faroese mother-in-law’s place! If you ever find yourself in the Faroe Islands (which I highly recommend!), do yourself a favour and book this tour…you won’t regret it!
This was AMAZING. As we had little time in n the Faroes we decided to do small yours to seize the time. David, from Heimdal Yours, was an amazing guide. He picked up us at our accommodation and took us in his car through Eysturoy and Streymoy, from 9 to 18 we were with him and it was one of the best days of our 3 weeks trip.
We had sun, cloud, rain, snow falling, hailstorms, amazing! We had stories about the Vikings, facts about the Islands and history of how all worked in the area in the old days. We had mountains and cliffs, small frozen rivers and waterfalls.
We couldn’t have Asked for more. Thanks David!

David is an absolutely excellent guide. This tour was one of the best I’ve ever been on anywhere in the world. The tour takes you to most of the major sites in the Faroe Islands without ever feeling rushed. I would highly recommend this tour to any visitor to the Faroe Islands.
My wife and I had a fantastic trip – Faroe Islands Highlights Tour – on Friday 29.03.2019. Sun, snow, little rain – Faroese weather, but no weather is bad weather! Pleasant and very competent guide! We had a great day in the Faroe Islands.

Perfect guide !!!! Can’t wait to return !!!
David was a fantastic guide, he was knowledgeable and a good person to explain all the sights and sounds and smells. We really enjoyed our time with him and heartily recommend him!!! Thank you David!!
I would highly recommend this tour we had an amazing day.
When we booked I advised we are Gluten Free and was advised that would not be a problem, and we had a lovely lunch that accommodated GF people.
The tour guide was very informative and a really nice guy, very pleasant. We enjoyed everything about the tour, and we were really pleasantly surprised when we stopped at the ruin of the cathedral and went inside a beautiful wooden house. It was really fascinating. The couple that were also taking the tour were lovely people from NZ so there was just the 4 of us on the tour. Really great and a nice comfy vehicle.
Our tour with David was great, highly recommended! He gave us great insight into life in the Faroes. The day was one of the highlights of our trip
I turned out to be the only person booked for the tour this day, but luckily my guide David decided to carry it through anyway, as his father was also visiting and could join us.
I had such a fantastic day with these two gentlemen! David was a very knowledgeable and informative guide who told me all sorts of things about history, traditions and society on the islands. It was of course luxurious to be the only client on the tour, but even with a full group of 7-8 people there would have been plenty of time for questions and discussions.
We visited pretty villages and beautiful sights, the nature of the Faroese islands is indeed stunning! Even the weather was relatively cooperative 🙂
We also had the pleasure of having some delicious waffles with home made rhubarb jam and coffee on the way – sold and served in the private kitchen of a very friendly Faroese couple.
I would really recommend this tour!
David was an excellent guide. I’m so happy that he was able to show me around on my last day in the Faroe Islands! It was lovely 🙂
Extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. Great tour with stunning scenery!

The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating to our requests. don’t let me say about the views. It was totally breathtaking and out of this world. You can’t get it anywhere else .it was very carefully plans and we got to see all the beautiful spots around the area we are going. If you need a tour in Faroe, this is the place to go
I had a great time on our tour regardless of the weather which, however dull, I wasn’t even paying attention to because of all the scenery and nice things we got to see! 🙂 Tummas, our guide, was pleasant, easy going, very interesting and knowledgable. So glad I did the tour!
Harry was an exceptional tour guide, informative, flexible, nothing was a problem. One of the best tour experiences we have ever had and we travel a lot. Highly recommend the tour and the guide.
Great tour if you only have a limited time to spend in the Faroe Islands and would like to see as much as possible in one day. The guide was great, friendly and answering every question with plenty of details. Learned a lot about local life and saw plenty of nice spots! The included lunch was also appreciated 🙂 Absolutely recommending this tour.
An amazing trip with a really good guide! 🙂 Despite the not-so-pleasant weather it was an experience I won’t forget. Would recommend it to all!

Good tour and overview of the islands.

Absolutely loved the tour!
David was kind enough to take me on the tour alone after other participants cancelled. He was really knowledgeable about the island, and didn’t mind answering lots of questions. We made many photos stops along the way and the packed lunch in Tjornuvik was fabulous.

What a lovely tour! Our guide (David) was so nice and thoughtful. The weather wasn’t that great, but everything else met all the expectations.
We had a very nice day tour with a lot of nice stories which our guide David told us. The tour is very good organized and we recommend it to other people. It‘s a very nice tour to get a first impression about the history and most important sights of the Faroe Islands.
Regarding Covid19: we always felt save as there are just a very few cases on the island.
This tour was simply awesome! Our tour guide David was wonderful and knew how to answer every single question we had. He knew every little bit about the Faroes and was great fun to drive around with.
I was lucky enough to go on this tour on a clear day, and all the views were simply amazing. This tour takes you to all the places you must see in the Faroes! Also, the provided lunch was delicious.
If I ever had the chance to visit the Faroes for the first time again, I would not hesitate on joining this tour once again. My sincerest recommendations!

Fantastisk tur med en virkelig dygtig og behagelig guide
Guide to Faroe Islands
Everything was just perfekt for us.
The guide was so good at telling the stories and took us very interesting places.
We recommend the tour around the Island.
We definately come back to this beautiful place.
We took the ferry from Vagar to Mykines but we had to check the weather before the departure as it ‘s not always favorable and sometimes the ferry cannot come to take you back to Vagar! The weather is unpredictable. We had a little bit of Rain, sun and wind! So you have to dress in layers. A waterproof jacket and good hiking shoes is a must. The path is not very easy, but the View is absolutely stunning. Our guide Thomas was skilled and showed us the way to the puffins’ nests. We had a lovely lunch, that our guide had prepared for us, when we reached the lighthouse ! The way Back is easier. You have some time to stroll around the Village as well, while waiting for the ferry to pick you up!
The tour was excellent. The tour guide is very nice and it is great that you did not walk the steap slope.
I had the most amazing trip! The team was very helpful and accommodating and the trip leader even helped me find the best place on the boat to stand (as I tend to get quite sea-sick…but I didn’t on this trip)! The island was absolutely beautiful and I saw more puffins than I ever thought I’d see in my lifetime. We had a beautiful hike, a nice lunch and views that I will never forget. Thank you for such an incredible experience.
Great day trip our guide Tummas was very friendly and a great guide. The hike itself was quite tiring but the views and being surrounded by puffins made it worthwhile! Highly recommend this tour which was well worth the money.
Just a quick note to say thank you for organizing & hosting our trip to Mykines.
The lady who greeted us with our ferry tickets & lunches was gorgeous, the healthy fresh lunch fantastic, the skipper & crew of the boat professional & attentive, our guide warm, friendly & highly informative. All in all an unforgettable experience.
Considering the unmeasurable value of the island ecosystem & diverse sensitivities, it is my hope & strong belief that all visitations to the island should by necessity involve a company such as yours to reduce future impact, particularly on Puffin/Lundi populations/nesting sites.
Our guide was excellent. We enjoyed a long hike and had great views. The weather was incredibly clear and sunny and this contributed to make the day amazing.
We had the most wonderful tour with Tummas to Mykines. Wonderful weather, stunning nature and lots of puffins and other birds. We were so lucky that our group only was our family and Tummas and he was an excellent guide showing the hidden gems of the Island, telling the stories – a pleasure to be with. Best regards, the Lauridsen Family
Jeg havde en super god tur, guiden Tummas fra Heimdal Tours fortalte mange interessante ting om Færøernes kultur, historie og dyreliv og var hyggeligt selskab. Han var god til at spotte dyr som jeg ellers havde misset, både fugle og sæler. Det var en behagelig tur i ens eget tempo. Det blæste meget den dag jeg var der, vindtæt tøj/ vanter er godt at have med. Selve sejlturen var meget flot. På øen blev vi inviteret på kaffe hos gæstfrie Oda Andreasen (se hendes fantastiske billeder på Instagram).
Jeg vil selv gerne på denne tur igen med familien når jeg kommet tilbage til Færøerne! Varm anbefaling af denne tur med Heimdal Tours!
