Mykines

Trip Planner Europe  /  Faroe Islands  /  Mykines
A small coastal village of brightly colored houses with turf roofs remains the only inhabited place to visit on Mykines. The rest of the grass-covered volcanic island shelters various seabird species, including northern fulmars, shearwaters, and European storm petrels. Despite its size and lack of urban amenities, the island provides plenty of chances to keep active--most vacations in Mykines include hiking and examining the geological wonders scattered along the coastline, going on boat rides, and exploring the entire island from a helicopter. Customize your holiday with our Faroe Islands day trip tool to create an adventure that suits you.
