Hiking is a great way to experience our beautiful nature. You don’t have to go far to experience our magnificent and breathtaking nature. Below this article we have a selection of guided hikes, that provide you with local knowledge and storytelling.


We reccomend booking a local guide to ensure your safety and to give you the best experience.

Remember to ask permission if your hike is not on a marked path. By Faroese legislation, you are not allowed to wander freely in the wilderness of the Faroe Islands. You are only allowed to walk on the old village paths, if other arrangements have not been made. 

If you book a local guide, the guide will ensure that you have the necessary permission.

If you hike on your own, please let someone in the village know you’re going. We reccomend this for safety reasons, and to avoid you getting in the middle of e.g. sheepherding or hare hunting.

Please take a look at Visit Faroe Islands' recommendations before your hike:

If you prefer a village walk, the regular price is DKK 360 per hour, and the minimum price is for two hours (DKK 720). This is also for up to 18 people. Prices may vary.


We can also arrange for something to eat during or after your hike. Please let us know, if we can help you with this. You can book everything from a packed lunch, pancakes, dinner or soup. You can send your request to: info@visitsandoy.fo 


If you cancel a booked hike less than two weeks before the day of the hike, there is no refund.

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.


Your safety is our highest priority. We draw your attention to the risks associated with the unique characteristics of the Faroese environment. Consequently, should you venture into the Faroese environment, either alone, following inspiration from our website, or together with one of our tour guides, you do so entirely at your own risk. We accept no liability for any injury or loss that may occur as a result.
