TAKE A BOAT TRIP

And old Faroese saying is "Hjallurin er á sjónum" which means the food chamber is the sea and during centures fishing, whaling and farming provided the population with food.

Our tour boats are safe and comfortable, and naturally we pack picnic baskets with desired contents along for the trip.
GO FISHING OFF SHORE
Faroe Islands have excellent fishing opportunities. The fishing boats and skooners are licensed, sea safe and fully equipped with, for example, floating suits, rain clothes, fleece jackets and rubber boots for you to borrow. Professional fishing guides familiar with our waters are also joining the tour. During the fishing trip we naturally take the time to enjoy a fortifying lunch at sea, where Birgir´s delicious fish soup warms you up nicely!
For fly fishing entusiasts the fishing salmon in the lakes and seasides is possible as well as trout fishing in smaller lakes around the Faroe Islands.
DIVING AN EXCITING UNDERWATER WORLD
You are hereby invited to a fantastic sub sea experience in the crystal clear ocean around the Faroe Islands, said to have some of the cleanest water in the world. You will find a wide range of excellent and unique diving sites around the islands, with a beautiful, varied and unspoiled seabed. You can explore seaweed forests, fantastic drop-offs and grottos with exciting animal life.
The temperature of the water around the Faroes varies from 4 to 10 degrees Celsius depending on the season. Visibility is best in the winter months, when the water temperature is low. In the winter, visibility is about 30 metres and the average temperature 6 degrees. In the summer, plankton blooms sometimes degrade visibility. However, visibility varies a great deal and even in summer it can reach 15-20 metres. For maximum visibility we recommend that you take your diving holiday outside the high season.
Diving spots are located all over the Faroe Islands. It is of great importance that you never dive alone, but we also recommend that a qualified leader with local knowledge supervises every dive. There are diving courses for beginners available around the islands.
Certified divers can hire equipment, so that you can explore cracks and look under rocks and also fully appreciate the splendid colours and nuances of the flora and fauna.
The Faroes offer excellent opportunities for diving with seals, a truly unique experience.
