Hiking & Sailing in the Faroe Islands
3500€ per person
Hiking & Sailing in the Faroe Islands is a trip that connects us with the land and the sea, with the traditions and culture of the people that try every single day to take advantage of its nature in a sustainable way and without losing that innocence that only remains in these kind of places.
The Faroe Islands are strength and beauty, which creeps our senses and rocks us our soul.
In a group of maximum 10 people aboard the Norðlýsið sailboat and with its local crew, we will sail between fjords, disembarking every morning to make unique hikes across the most impressive areas that these islands give to us, such as Gásadalur, Mykines and Gjógv.
The deep cliffs that hide beautiful corners, will allow us to enjoy the best views towards the immense valleys and Faroese fjords.
Its small villages of a thousand colors and the warmth of its people will welcome us in this unique journey that immerses us fully in the ancestral relationship of the human being with the sea and its laws, the need to explore the unknown, the mythology of these lands and the brutal sound of the waves hitting the rocks that guard its rugged coasts.
