Take the ferry from Klaksvik to Syðradalur (be sure to be there on time, as it will fill up quickly) and be amazed by the landscape and views on the unique island that is Kalsoy. When driving up to Trøllanes, there are a few stops along the way (Mikladur, Húsar) not to be missed. Obviously the hike to the lighthouse is the most popular, and 100% worth it. I'll reward you with the best views in the world. (Bold statement, but I've seen my share) The hike will take about 50 minutes one way.

Despite being well traveled to and Instagrammed to death, when the lighting is right it is still a remarkable spot. From the northern end you can see the tips of many of the islands in Faroe lined up, giving you a feeling that you’re at the edge of the known world. Take the first boat or spend the previous night on Kalsoy to avoid the big crowds that seem to come around 10 or 11 as they take the mid-morning ferry over. There was also a a gorgeous but potentially dangerous band of cliffs above the village of Trøllanes. It's a nice accompanyment if you're already visiting the Kallur Lighthouse but take care when hiking the cliff edge. A word of warning that most visitors seem to leave around the same time and try to get on board the first after return ferry, which was full as it can only take around 15 cars. If you miss that ferry you have a one hour wait for the next one.

We trek for an hour to Kallur Lighthouse. The trek wasn’t easy as we have to tiptoe in a tiny trail up there.But when u was up there , the view was totally mesmerising and beautiful. Words can’t describe it. The landscape , sea and the mountain and even the sky totally combine and make it beautiful .if only I could paint and paint the views up there

With a family of naturalists and a seal expert we had to visit Kalsoy and the seal woman statue. First stop Klaksvik and a wait for the ferry as it doesn’t run all day. Read a great blog that told us that you’d never believe you’d get on the tiny car ferry. Parked next to two huge lorries and watched as cars arrived. Then amazed how we got on for the short crossing. On Kalsoy you will drive a single track road with passing places and some serious single track tunnels. I’ve driven all over Europe but these tunnels were mad! Anyway we survived and I’d recommend it! The statue was good too and almost forgotten.

This is an excellent hike of about 1 hour. The views are amazing. The hazards are large quantities of sheep poop, and having to jump some small streams. The hike is on a mountain side so you are walking at a 45 degree angle which can be tough on your ankles. Additional dangerous hike to the photo taking point. Be careful. One of our group wandered into a black birds nesting area and the birds attacked him, be careful where you walk.
