Totally honest the fees are a bit steep For my liking many of the trails go Through privately owned land and the Land owners charge people going through Them some of the fees can be as low as a Hundred Danish kroners which is about 13 US dollars to 550 Danish kroners which Is more closer to 72 US dollars Now as someone whose work is to travel This for me was a necessary expense but I can understand why many people would Be put off by this So if you're coming to Fair islands and You're planning to visit one or two of These places now you know and it's up to You whether you think it's worth it or Not [Music] We Begin our journey on the island of Vagar at the International Airport this Is where we pick up our rental car and Begin our exploration of the first Island While on vargar I always recommend Making the almost customary visit to the Village of Casa delore This is where you can find the famous View of the waterfall along with the Village and the imposing mountains Surrounding it in the background There's a small path from the village That leads to the waterfall [Music] You can also find a set of stairs that

Leads you down to a different view of The waterfall Foreign [Music] A pair of 70 meters tall sea stacks on The western coast of the island To reach tuna stranga you'll go on a Lesser-known hike as evident by the lack Of a real Trail leading to them you'll Be walking mostly through hilly and Often wet grasslands following a small River I was pretty much alone throughout the Hike except for some sheep along the way But as you reach the edge you can gaze Below to see the Striking pair of sea Stacks towering from the sea below [Music] Thank you [Music] You can find links to maps and the Hiking app that I use for this and all Of my hiking trips in the description Box below To finish the first day off we take a Short drive to ladyspot [Music] Foreign [Music] This is where we can go on the hike to The slave Mountain which was said to be The location where disobedient slaves Were cast off during the Viking age this Is an easy seven kilometer hike but be

Aware that this hike does charge a fee Of 200 Danish kroners approximately 26 US Dollars while children below the age Of 14 are free of charge Foreign [Music] This is a well-known location for seeing The famous puffins as they nest around The edges of the island Foreign [Music] For the ferry to the island is 60 Danish Kroners per person and also there's a 250 Danish currency if you intend to do Any hiking this leads me to the popular Hike to the lighthouse on the island Unfortunately this hike has been closed Off due to a landslide and the Authorities are monitoring the situation And hopefully it opens up again in 2023 So if you intend to do the hike do Please double check to see if it's open Alternatively if you want to skip Mission is you could consider doing the Hike to dragonia the famous seastack Arch on the western coast of bargar [Music] To get to hike to Dragonair you'll have To pay a steep fee of 550 Danish kroners Which is around 72 US Dollars this Includes a guide in a group tour you are Unfortunately not allowed to hike alone On this Trail without a guide Foreign
