Kalsoy, Bordhoy

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Bordhoy
Hike the hilly terrain of Kalsoy and bring your binoculars for this designated Important Bird Area. With just four settlements, the population here remains very small--yet 13 peaks and an abundance of Atlantic puffins, black guillemots, and European storm petrels are a real treat for nature enthusiasts. Head to the large lighthouse in the north, from which you can observe the varied landscape and the sea. Using our custom trip planner, Bordhoy attractions like Kalsoy can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
