This round trip from Gamlarætt in Streymoy to the island of Hestur includes sightseeing around the island. Slowly we move as near as possible to the birds under the cliff, Loftið, which vertical wall measures some 1,200 feet.

Hestur harbours guillemots, puffins, black guillemots, shags, fulmars and eiders. A couple of seal caves are there as well.

If the weather is good, we also sail into the caves, Álvagjógv and Klæmintsgjógv. Current and wind directions decide which way we sail around the island.

**Remember departure from Gamlarætt..!
