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.
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).
I enjoyed the Vestmanna trip. Not a huge number of birds but the cliffs are quite scenic.
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.
It was a wonderful trip and experience. Certainly worth coming.
Would do it again!
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!
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.

Rigtig god tur med god guidning.
Perfect and exhaustive.
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.
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!
This was a fantastic experience. The weather could be better but the Faroe Islands are beautiful no matter how the weather is.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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).
We were really happy with it!
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)
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!
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! 🙂
Amazing trip! So worth the money … Captain took us all along the sea cliffs up to Saksun! Beautiful landscape and hundreds of birds!!
Great tour. The best way to see the famous Cliffs. Well organized and well conducted. With the money.
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.
This was a 5 star trip!
Great trip. Amazing views on and in between the rocks. Many birds and sheeps. Super Captain and tour guide.
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!
Totally worth it.
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.

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

A September day with beautiful weather conditions for sailing. Very good guide.
It was an amazing trip. Beautiful cliffs seen from the sea level. Excellent boat steering skills by the captain. I recommend 🙂
It was a fantastic tour. The boat was really suitable for the purpose, and the captain was a great narrator.
We were very pleased.
Lovely tour. Great weather. Good boat. Nice people. Beautiful birds.
We had the best experience. A great combination of the Westmanna cliffs and the beautiful Mykinos Island. The weather could have been better, but we where proberly dressed.
A trip i can only recommend.
A very special experience – facing towering sea cliffs and weaving through dark caves and grottoes in a boat, and observing all the beautiful birdlife in their natural habitat. And then hiking to beautiful Mykines lighthouse and the puffin colonies – thousands of these precious birds at close quarters with all their quirks with jaw-dropping views littered across the whole day. Our English-speaking guide was great – very patient and helpful with the slow hikers like my parents and very engaging and educative at the same time. The weather really helped as it was sunny on Mykines and had been sunny the day before too – so it wasn’t muddy anywhere. It should be noted that no matter what you hear, this is a medium-level (not easy) hike for beginner hikers and proper hiking shoes are a must as even in slight rain, it would get very slippery. Go prepared, and the experience will be more than rewarding. I feel extremely lucky to have been able to do it, that too, in great weather!

The boat trip was amazing. We got to see so much more than if we would have taking the other ferry. Plus the boat looks way more comfortable and warm. Our guide was spot on with information and anecdotes, Amazing time for the three of us.

The trip was perhaps a bit too long on the Mykines island. This could of course be because of the rain and low visibility. But a lot of the passengers were in the end just cramped in the town, waiting for the boat to ferry them back. Perhaps an hour shorter would do.
We really enjoyed this tour. The combination of Vestmanna cliffs tour and hiking Mykines works really well and is probably the best deal out there. The cliffs were truly stunning and there was a little commentary that made the whole trip even more interesting. We then went to Mykines were we had over 4 hours to explore. Plenty of time to have lunch and hike to the lighthouse and back with a lot of stops for puffin-spotting. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone coming to Faroe Islands.
The tour is ideal for combining two highlights. The captain is very familiar with his ship and he has sailed us through several narrow places at the Vestmanna Cliffs. On Mykines we have stayed for three hours. Sure, if you want to watch the birds longer, you should stay overnight. For us the hours were perfect to experience the island and the cute puffins. Great tour!

Meget flot og spændende tur. Eneste minus var antallet af passagerer, der gjorde det sværere at tage billeder.
