Full description
Experience a full day out on the tranquil bird island, Mykines. Mykines is a protected site due to its large and varied bird population and exceptional natural beauty. Walk among the birds in one of the largest puffin colonies in the world on the way to the famous white lighthouse, situated at the westernmost point of the Faroe Islands.

Enjoy an organic packed lunch of homemade bread with traditional, local toppings and quench your thirst with natural spring water. Bask in the beauty and charm of the village of Mykines as you are invited in by a local to an old, typical Faroese-style, turf-roof house from 1880.

Immerse yourself in the island's culture as you cook up a homemade dinner of regional delicacies with your new friend. Listen as they shed light on the history of the remote island of Mykines.
