The 5 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 straight at your hotel and the drive 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 onesubsea 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.
What To Expect:
The day begins in the morning when the bus picks you up at your hotel in Tórshavn, the capital. the journey takes you to the old mountain road out of Tórshavn, were we will make two Photo stops, one of the Island Koltur and the other of the only Prison in the Faroe Islands, which has a breathtaking view. the bus continues to the island Vágoy, through a sub sea tunnel and will stop in the village Miðvágur. this is were the hike starts. the hike is 3.5KM each way, and it usually takes approx one hour to reach the famous “slaves point” were you will see the optical illusion. This is the time to eat the lunch pack and just enjoy the surroundings. the guide is telling stories all the way, but you will also feel the freedom of walking by yourself when needed. heading back to the bus after approx 1 hour ( depending on weather ) back at the bus, the journey heads back to your hotel in Tórshavn, and the driver usually takes the other way back, just to make sure that you see as much as possible. the day has come to an end and you are dropped of back at your hotel.
