What To Expect
A great way to get away from everything and see the Faroe Islands from another point of view that only a few other people will see is to summit a mountain. The local Faroese people have been wandering the mountains and herding sheep for centuries.
On your adventure you should to be sure to bring warm clothes that can get a little dirty and supportive, comfortable shoes that can get wet. You may also encounter some wildlife, as many birds live in the mountains and cliffs. Don't be surprised if you see plenty of sheep roaming around, too. If our guides deem the weather or any other elements are too dangerous, they will make a decision on the trip with your safety in mind first. Our guides are very experienced and understand that Faroese nature is quite unpredictable. Reika Adventures offers lunch boxes with local Faroes food on our hiking trips for 200 DKK extra. If a lunch box is wanted it's necessary to order it at least 24 hours before the start of the hike.
There are 41 mountain tops on Vágar, the highest being Árnafjall (722 m), and the lowest is Trælanípan (142 m). We have hiked every single one of them. We know the history and all the legends attached to these old mountains. Whether you want to hike to abandoned villages or just hike a mountain with a guide, you are more than welcome to contact us.
Contact us to inquire about prices as each trip may vary based on group size, location, etc.
