Top Hiking Spots in and near Faroe Islands

  • Trøllanes, Faroe Islands

    Hike to Kallur Lighthouse

    3 mi / 500 ft gain
    Getting to the trailhead: The island of Kalsoy has a population of less than 200, and offers few amenities. It’s unlikely you’ll stay on the island, and a much more reasonable base of operations is the town of Klaksvik on the island of Borðoy. We camped the night before doing the hike at the camp...

    Hike along Lake Leitisvatn

    3.1 mi
    Leitisvatn is the largest lake in the Faroe Islands, and is famous for having the appearance that it's hanging over the ocean. It is a simple hike that should take no more than an hour to get from the trailhead to the iconic view from up on the far cliff. The trailhead starts near the town of Mid...

    Hike to the Trøllkonufingur in the Faroe Islands

    6.2 mi / 465.9 ft gain
    When you drive from Torshavn, follow the signs to the airport. On the island of Vagar, just after the village of Miðvágur the road bends to the right, with the lake on your right-hand side. On this bend there's a small exit where you can park the car to start your hike.  Once you've parked, walk ...

    Hike to Mýlingur

    7.5 mi / 2500 ft gain
    Mylingur, a mountain located on the northern tip of Streymoy within the Faroe Islands, is a hard place to reach and a tricky trail to find, but within a land of so many epic locations, this could go down as one of the best in the Faroe Islands.  There are technically two starting points to get t...

  • Bakkavegur, Faroe Islands

    Fossa Waterfall

    1.67 mi / 597 ft gain
    A great part about this hike is that it’s incredibly accessible, as the trailhead is literally on the coastal road. Some people will probably just poke their way up towards the bottom tier of the falls, take a picture or two, and then head back to their cars. The secret is to make an almost imme...

  • 62.299848,-6.966652, Faroe Islands

    Hike to Hvíthamar Mountain

    0.9 mi / 600 ft gain
    The toughest part of this hike is finding the start of it. The start of the hike isn’t marked and there are a small handful (2 or 3) of places to park when you do find it. I’ve placed a map in the photos section to outline the parking spot and the easterly direction of the hike you’ll take up to ...
