Kalsoy, Mikladalur

#3 of 11 in Nature in Faroe Islands
Island · Nature / Park
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. Our Mikladalur trip itinerary planning site makes visiting Kalsoy and other Mikladalur attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
