Mykines, Faroe Islands


Welcome to Mykines, birds’ paradise!  No cars, thousands of puffins and other bird species to be observed and easily photographed.

Mykines is the westernmost of the 18 main islands of the Faroe Archipelago. It can be reached by boat from Sovagur (Vagar island) during summer months or by helicopter all year round.

In addition to photos shot on Mykines itself, the post shows the seaport of Sovagur and two rocks found on the way to the island.
