Vágar Island Highlights

The whole day guided tour to the lake above 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 the capital of Tórshavn, where you will be picked up at your hotel or designated pick up point.
This tour is a combination of guided sightseeing to villages like Gásadalur, Bøur & Sandavágur, where you will get opportunities to take photos of Drangarnir and Tindhólmur.
