Full description
Sailing close to the seashore of Mjóvin, take in a varied landscape with gorges and grottoes. Learn about the semi-wild sheep grazing upon the steep slopes, and keep your eyes open to spot local seabirds such as puffins, black guillemots, and fulmars. Sail into a grotto, weather permitting, before enjoying a light meal to the sound of the sea and the birds. Cast a fishing line off the coast of Bergið and catch Atlantic cod and haddock. Following that, try your hand at catching the beautiful Reyðfiskur, a red variation of the Atlantic cod. You will be welcome to take the fish home with you to prepare for a wonderful meal. Crossing the fjord, sail towards Lishøvdi and follow the western seashore. Sail by Kóphella and hear stories about life on these shores in historic times as you learn about geology, bird life, marine environment, aquaculture, Faroese culture, and cuisine, as well as local stories and happenings.

Es waren 2-3 sehr amüsante Stunden mit Samson, dem coolsten Captain auf den Färöer Inseln. Die Fahrten durch die Höhlen unter den riesigen Felsen waren das Highlight der Tour. Danach gab es eine Abkühlung als Samson das Boot unter einen kleinen Wasserfall lenkte! Zu guter Letzt kam der Teil mit dem Angeln. Die Chancen, dass ein Fisch anbeißt sind bei 101%! Innerhalb von einer dreiviertel Stunde angelte ich 4-5 Fische! Lasst Euch diese Tour nicht ergehen, wenn Ihr auf den Färöer Inseln seid!
