I went to Mykines in late May 2018. It was my first time here, and it was likely the top highlight in my wonderful trip to the Faroe Islands. I would say that if you make your way to this remote part of the world,...More

I visited Mykines in July 2018. 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 at 10.20 am and arrived into...More

The boat trips to Mykines are often booked up in advance, but it is definitely worth coming. You disembark from the boat and can either explore the small village, or head out west towards the bird cliffs and the lighthouse at the end of the...More

One of the best places in Faroe islands. We had nice weather and we have seen a lot of puffins. They were beautiful and amazing and we loved just to stay and watch them. Before visiting it is good to check if puffins are on...More

Bear in mind that many boat trips are fully booked so you will be among a party of 80 tourists most of whom will be doing the same walk to the lighthouse and back. Disembarkation is tantamount to invasion; don't expect blissful solitude! I guess...More

Do not go to Mykines, it is not worth it. The lighthouse trail is closed and hundreds of people are unloaded with every ferry boat onto a small, step hill and rim trail. Yes, you will see puffins, even a lot from the top where...More

We visited Mykines on a depressive rainy day, and the hike to the lighthouse turned into a slow, messy trudge through mud and fog. And it was glorious. Maybe it's the feeling of desolation that grips you when you're alone, on a wind swept rock,...More

We had a lovely day trip to Mykines in late July. We were lucky to get onto the extra ferry scheduled for midday as the early ferry was booked out. We had to pay cash on the boat for this ferry though. The ferry took...More

This was my second visit, and since I first visited we now have a fee to pay and a supposed recommendation to visit the lighthouse and seabird cliffs with a guide to reduce the impact on the environment. However, it is clear to me that...More

I was lucky, the boat the previous day was cancelled, but the weather was glorious when I visited. After passing the puffins you get wonderful views from the lighthouse looking back. I also recommend the helicopter back to Vagar if you are lucky enough to...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
