The 7 hour guided tour to the lake over the ocean is a must, when visiting the Faroe Islands. The location is famous for the optical illusion that strikes, when you can see the lake and the ocean in the same view. The tour begins in Tórshavn, the capital, were the bus picks you up at your hotel and the drives to the islands Vágoy is approx 40 minutes. During the drive, the guide will inform you about daily life on the islands while driving on mountain roads and through one subsea tunnel. The hike is easy, a good path and a total of 7 KM long hike. You will be greeted with a packed lunch and something to drink for the hike, which is perfect when reaching the view point. After the hiking, the driver will take you back to your hotel in Tórshavn, and he usually takes a different route back, just to make sure you see as much as possible.
