Mykines, Faroe Islands

Mykines–the Faroe Islands ' westernmost (and in fact pronounced "meech-ih-ness") –is known for one main thing: it is an abundant variety of bird life that explodes with nesting seabirds during the summer months. There are gannets and cormorants and razorbills and petrels and kittiwakes of fulmars and storms... and puffins of the Atlantic. And the puffins are the stars of the show here for most people.

TRANSPORT AND ACCOMMODATION If you are planning to visit Mykines, we always recommend that you start your trip. Because the weather makes it possible to be stuck on Mykines. This rarely happens, but every year it always happens a couple of times. It's also recommended that you get to know the weather on Mykines.

There are two options for transportation to Mykines Helicopter and Boat during high season. There are a few options for accommodation in Mykines. Follow the respective links for more information on these.

DO AND ABOUT The main attraction of Mykines is the guided walk to the islet of Mykineshólmur, a tourist attraction that is very much loved. The eventful journey to the islet will take you to the lighthouse at the end of the world through steep climbs, a walk through a highly populated area of puffins. We offer the Mykines Sunset and Puffin tour as a new offer from May 2019–a quiet experience with a local guide.

There are two cafés on Mykines offering light snacks, meals and drinks. A breakfast or packed lunch can also be pre-ordered.

Sámal Joensen-Mikines, one of the most renowned Faroe Islands artists, was also born and lived most of his life on the island of Mykines, as well as some legends are attached to the island, the three most famous gifts for Mykines.
