About
Enjoy a whole day out at the bird island Mykines. The local guide greets you when you enter the village, and starts right away to tell you stories from the village. The hike out to the lighthouse on the islet Mykineshólmur, which is a Ramsar site for rich birdlife takes approx. Two hours, and here you will get really up close to the puffins, because you will actually walk right were they nest. watching the thousands of Puffins, Gannets and others birds, while walking in some of the most beautiful landscapes The Faroes has to offer, really can make the time stand still.

Do not book this tour - you learn morn by going yourself and reading the factsheet on the island
May 2021
Do not go on this tour.
Even when our tourguide was a nice person, she didn't know a thing about puffins (basics like habitat, eating habits, life expectancy). Also not much about the faroes. We were very sad because it was the main interest to book this tour.

By the way, Mykines is the one island you can visit yourself. There is just one path, very easy to find and very safe.

I asked for a refund, but Tora Tourist company wasn't willing to find a compromise.
So, sorry to say but I can not recommend this tour at all, its not worth the money at all.

Great tour!
Jul. 2020 • Family
We booked this tour for our family and it was great! We were met at the ferry by a rep to give us our lunches. ( which were delicious and they even had a gluten free, vegan option!) we then took the ferry to the island and met our guide. It was a great day spent learning about puffins and talking to a local, our guide lives on the island all summer. Our girls did great on the hike, the trail is muddy and steep and not good if you don’t like heights. Very good and highly recommend!

LOVED this tour!!
May 2019
This tour on Mykines was one of the highlights of my 7 day trip the Faroes! I loved it!! Rannva met me at the boat dock and started our hike up a separate part of the island and away from the rest of the groups. It was amazing to see the island from that vantage point higher up. We made our way over to the main hiking "path" and over to the lighthouse. Rannva was so kind and informative. She taught me so much about the island and about the Faroes in general. It was amazing to spend so much time learning from a local one on one. She packed a very tasty local lunch that we ate once we reached the lighthouse. We just sat and talked and enjoyed the view. The hike itself is not easy but this is coming from someone who doesn't hike. It was challenging up and down the large hills but very worth it! It was stunning!! We only saw the puffins flying around above us and in the water but it was in May and they hadn't been on land much at that point yet. We finished the tour and I still had plenty of time to sit and relax before the boat arrived again. I will always remember this tour and definitely recommend this tour and tour company. Communication from the tour company was wonderful as well. :)

Great Tour..Amazing Views
Jul. 2019 • Couples
My wife and I booked the tour through ' Guide to Faroe Islands'. It was very well organized. We reached to ferry terminal and from there on we were treated well and everything went completely professionally. We were pleasantly surprised by having local mom and daughter as our tour guide for the tiny most beautiful Mykines island full of Puffins..most loving cute sea birds. We throughly enjoyed the hike and the lunch at the lighthouse.
