Hiking

You’ll find that once you get off the beaten path on foot, the mountains and valleys will open up for you in marvellous and unexpected ways.

One of the many special features of the Faroe Islands is that you don’t have to go far to experience magnificent and untouched nature. Look around you. Take a few steps. Take a deep breath and listen. It’s all right there!

We have hiked all over the Faroe Islands, seeking out the most beautiful trails. Each step you take on while hiking, we will have been there before you. Make sure you are fully prepared by reading the hiking guide, which includes 23 hiking routes and important practical information.

Safety isn’t expensive, its priceless

The Northern Isles have high mountains and steep hills, therefore we ask you to follow all regulations and guidance about hiking in the Nothern Isles. Do to safety we do recommend that you do not hike up into the mountains of Kunoy without a guide and the same is applies to Enniberg.
