Drangarnir - the sea stacks


One of the most unique sights in the Faroe Islands are “Drangarnir”. Drangarnir are two sea stacks between Vágar and the islet Tindhólmur. The distinct names of Drangarnir are Stóri Drangur and Lítli Drangur which can be translated into Large- and Small sea stack.

It is now possible for you to see these with your own eyes – on this tour with a local guide. The tour starts at the Effo petrol station by the harbour in the village of Sørvágur, and the guide will take you though his land to the viewpoint of Drangarnir. This is a medium hard hike.

According to Faroese legislation walking on the in- and outfields require the landowners’ permission. You are only allowed to walk in this area with a guide. Hiking here without a guide can be fined.

A care for the nature and the sheep and wildlife that lives on the uncultivated area is essential. These areas are first and foremost the feeding and breeding fields for sheep, other animals and wildlife in general. It is therefore very important that traveling on this area is on the paths and organized to minimize the disturbing of sheep, wildlife and nature as much as possible.

Guided tours can be arranged:

Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 12:00

From 1st of April until 1st of October.

The tour starts at the Effo petrol station on the harbor in Sørvágur, and the duration is approximately 5 hours

If the tour is cancelled from our side, for example due to bad weather, the full amount will be refunded. Be aware that this can happen up to the very last moment, as we cannot predict or control the unsteady weather on the islands.
