Welcome to Vestmanna
Deservedly the Faroes’ biggest tourist attraction is a breathtaking boat tour to the soaring Vestmanna Bird Cliffs. Boats bob beneath towering cliff faces, past spiky rock pinnacles and through narrow escarpments sometimes squeezing beneath tight stone arches. You’ll spy the breeding areas of guillemots and razorbills as screeching fulmars and kittiwakes soar above like thousands of white dots

What you will see: Urriðafoss: “The Trout Fall” is the largest and the most spectacular waterfall of river Þjórsá. It is also one of the most voluminous waterfalls in Iceland. A relatively unknown but a very spectacular and powerful waterfall full of beauty, an ideal place for photographers with beautiful surroundings. Seljalandsfoss: A picturesque waterfall. One of the most popular subjects for photographers. As water flows overhang, it is possible to take a path that allows going behind the waterfall. From there, the sight is simply divine. You will discover how fun it is to sneak and disappear behind the water curtain and be out of world for a moment. You will be dazzled by this magnificent site, the power of the water, the beautiful rainbows which go through the waterfall due to the sunlight and the vapor droplets. Gljúfurárfoss: This interesting waterfall is carefully hidden behind a narrow opening in the mountain. Listen the deep roaring, echoing sound of the falling water and become an explorer to find out this magical and intimate place which keeps the purity of a place out of time. Skógafoss: One of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland. An iconic symbol with a width of 25m and a drop of 60m. Getting so close to the base of such a large waterfall is a quite rare experience. You can also enjoy it from above : there are stairs that lead to the top. The view from there is stunning. Sólheimajökull : A popular branch of Mýrdalsjökull, which is one of the largest glaciers of Iceland. You can experience the natural contrasts of the region: vast stretches of black sand and craters which suddenly give a way to bright walls of white ice, with blue highlights – huge and majestic. Dyrhólaey: The name means “door hill island” in Icelandic. This curious rocky arm is piercing with a shape which forms a door, an opening to the ocean. It is also a natural parc, sanctuary of birds, where you can observe many species especially the puffins, living symbol of Iceland. Reynisfjara: this black sand beach is often considered one of the most beautiful in the world. From there you can observe the Reynisdrangar, these lava columns sculpted by the waters, which emerge from the ocean.Vík: It is the most southerly village in the country. Its church, a white building with a red roof located on a hill, proudly dominates the modest houses of this village. The ocean on one side, the imposing cliffs of Mount Reynisfjall on the other side. Its isolated location and its magnificent environment have made the character of the village.During the trip, you can enjoy the sight of the glaciers : Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull, Vestmanna islands and volcano Hekla.
