I visited Mykines last week in early July 2018 with MM Tours. Mykines is located on the furthest point of the Faroes and is a paradise for bird-lovers. The Faroes have 340 days of fog and surprisingly, the day was sunny! I took the ferry...More

Suggest you to take the helicopter from the airport (buy tickets through internet) to reach Mykines, scroll around and start to hike. My husband and I cannot reach the lighthouse as we both scared of heights. There are plenty of puffins, you can take close...More

Well, more than the lighthouse, I would like to talk about the hike up to his lighthouse. You start your hike from the only harbor on the Mykines island. You have to pay a certain amount of hiking fee to start your hike but many...More

Our visit to the Faroes will stay in my mind 'forever'. We were lucky with weather it's true, and that could have a big impact on the experience. The landscape is dramatic with the islands rising out of the ocean on a slope, and you...More

Is almost the only thing you can do in mykines... it's quite hard to get there but the view is beautiful! Absolutely suggested. Warning: if it's a rainy day you'll find a lot of slippery mud

Most everything that has been said about Mykines is true: the scenery is spectacular, the hike to the lighthouse is challenging (but safe enough for confident children) and the wildlife, puffins and gannets in particular, is easily accessible. When we decided to visit the Faroes,...More

For Puffins lover, this is MUST visit place. It's just a short 45-50mins ferry or 11mins helicopter ride from Vagar. A round trip ferry ticket is 120 DKK per pax. But try to book early online as there's only 2 timing to the island (1020am...More

The fact is that no one comes to the island to climb and see the light house. They all come to see the colonies of the Puffins and the other birds colonies. The path is long and hard to climb and does not justify making...More

The lighthouse it self is just a lighthouse, but the path you need to walk to get there is just stunning and mind-blowing. In this sense, if you are in Mykines island, this is definitely "must see" attraction. On the way to the Holmur, you...More

2017 was the first year that required a guide. For 2018, the rules are relaxed a bit—now you are required to pay a hiking fee (DKK 100,online only, and in addition to the ferry ticket) to fund track maintenance and wardens... More
