Cruise on the schooner “Norðlýsið”

Enjoy a short cruise two-masted shooner.

Tuesday and Thursday
09.00-12.00

Large gorges, tall freestanding cliffs, caves and bird cliffs, surf and sunshine, shoals of fish and bird life. Klæmingsgjógv, Álvastakkur and Álvagjógv are the names of some of these incredible formations – an abundance of beauty and adventures. Are birdclifs, and perhaps seals and whales, high on your wishlisft of what you want to experience in the Faroe Islands? Then we can offer you this morning cruise! The trip takes 3 hours, and we sail close to the shore and the birdcliffs, where we’ll have the opportunity to take pictures of the birds, the cliffs and even in the water. On this trip we will pass the lighthouse, that had utmost important role on the sea, Borðan. The faroese writer, composer and painter William Heinese, called the lighthouse “The Lighthouse at the end of the world”. The lighthouse was built in 1893 and was, just as the other houses there, cut and built from boulders taken from the local area. The lense is 2.82 meters in diameter, and with a weight of almost 4 tons, is the biggest in Europe, and one of the biggest in the world.

Depending on the weathe we usually have a short stay in the village of Nólsoy.
