The fascinating relationships between the Faroe and birds have always been one of the trademarks of the little archipelago. There are around 250 species (including vagrants during the last 150 years) recorded on Faroes, including such birds as fulmar, puffin, storm petrel, black-legged kittiwake, guillemot and manx shearwater.

One of the best spot to watch puffins is Mykines island.

The period of late spring to late summer is specifically suitable for the bird admiration since most of them hang out on the treeless landscapes of the Islands. You should also try to wake up earlier and come see them around 6 in the morning ​when the chances are to hear them singing more than usual.

A really particular place to see the birds in their finest moments is Vestmanna cliffs on the Streymoy island. Having fjords and cliffs nearby, the birds that float and fly around give out the incredible sound that fills in everything around you. Can you imagine anything more captivating?
