Tour Details

Slættaratindur, translated as “flat summit”, is the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands, towering at 880 metres. On a clear day, all 18 islands of the Faroe Islands can be viewed from the top.

The tour starts at your chosen destination, where you will be picked up by your guide for the day. The starting point is approximately one hour drove from the capital.

You start your trip at Eiðisskarð, which is the pass between Eiði and Funningur. At this first leg, there is no path as such up to Slættaratindur, but when you go up, stay in a straight line from the parking lot. When you get to about 670 metres’ altitude, or after about a 30-40 minutes’ walk, you will come to the path that leads to the top. The path is inclined uphill to the left. Here, you are already so high that you have a view of, e.g. Haldórsvík, with the eight-sided church and a string of mountains that encircle the villages in the north. Throughout the hike, you will be accompanied by sheep that graze at the top of the Faroe Islands.

The last few metres up to the top are like a staircase made of rocks. Here, you need to be careful because it is steep on your left-hand side. Feel that sense of butterflies in your stomach when you’ve reached the top. The view is nothing less than spectacular; especially, if you are lucky with the weather. On a clear, sunny day, the view covers practically all of the Faroe Islands.

After the hike you’ll be able to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee at Byrgisstova, a local home with amazing view of the northern mountains.
