Travel information

The hike was about 2 hours each way for me but can be done quicker. I was there at the end of May, and while the sun did set, it was not completely dark and I used a camping headlamp. I would suggest you do hike back. The trail starts in a car park past the Sorvagur ferry dock. Walk past the ferry dock, into the car park, park and look along the shoreline for the trail.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Another Update: the hike can be booked at hiking.fo in advance. Also tours by boat are possible . We were lucky as be booked the hike and just before it should start a rain shower came up. So the guide (seemed to be the land owners son) brought us out by boat and picked us up again two hours later, adding a drive through the sea stack and into Munkastova. So sceptical we had been when we came to the meeting point, so happy we were when returning :-)

Did the hike this week and have some updated comments. It's definitely not a 2 hour hike unless you're very fit and a skilled hiker. I'd estimate at least 2.5 hours (it took me 3 because I stopped for photos along the way.) There are some very technical stretches that definitely worked on my nerves and are another good reason to have a hiking partner in case something goes wrong. Also, as Jens has mentioned, you absolutely need permission to do this hike. It's 550 DKK and the story is that the landowner watches the trail with binoculars and will come over in his boat to take people off the trail if they're there without permission and then make you pay the fee. Not super friendly, but it's not public land so he's within his rights. Guided hikes on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays can be arranged with the information posted on signs at the trailhead (and a few warning signs along the way.) Putting the contact info here for everyone: [email protected] or +298 22 30 72. I get the impression that you can arrange to hike on another day if you're with a group, have some sort of local guide, and absolutely get the permission of the landowner. This is what I did and I think I only got away with it because I was proactive and there was another group out ahead of me already.

Important: There are hiking restrictions meanwhile as the path to Dragarnir leads over private owned land: https://visitfaroeislands.com/see-do/hiking/guidelines-restrictions/ There are guided tours three times a week, photographers can hire a photographer for individual tours but this increases the price to more than double - currently a trip for two photographers for sunset costs DKK 3250 (EUR 435,--) if you join the normal hike it's "only" DKK 550 (EUR 75,--) per person (April 2019)

Wow, that's awesome! How long was the hike and where did you start? Just asking because I would like to know if you can get back after sunset or if you need to camp nearby. Thank you very much for sharing this beautiful place Chris!
