We were on one of the last excursions for the year, in September, and were surprised at how close to the cliffs the boat approached, navigating through the sea arches despite fierce rain squalls and rocking seas. In such weather it may not be for...More

Booked as a Holland America shore excursion, the village of Vestmanna provided us a boat ride right up to the soaring cliffs and between numerous narrow gorges, weaving in and out of the cavernous cliffs. The 40'+/- boat was piloted as slowly as was possible...More

This pleasant 2-hour boat trip gives you great views of the cliffs of the northwest coast of Streymoy. Most of the birds were flying high or high on the cliffs, so binoculars and a telephoto lens are a must! The guillemots had already left for...More

Although not so many birds in August, the sheer scale and size of these cliffs is just awesome, with the boat weaving gingerly between the massive seastacks. Very worth the trip!
