Get some fresh sea air on this short cruise along the coastline.
Escorted by the sea birds we visit the majestic cliffs on the east side of Nólsoy. The large island opposite Tórshavn. We pass the old lighthouse on "Borðan" and return to Tórshavn, enriched and refreshed.
Let us take you for a ride on the wind! Norðlýsið is scooner rigged and can set seven sails: Foresail, mainsail, two topsails and three jibs or bermuda sails (the ones in front).
The idea is, that you participate if able.
Watch the sunset and experience the Faroese summer night onboard our unique ship.
Norðlýsið has seen a lot of fish in it's time and there is no substitute for fishing from a vintage wooden sailship. We have the facilities to prepare a meal from the catch.
“Concerto Grotto” is a spectacular event. During the last several years, Birgir Enni, skipper of the vessel Norðlýsið (the Northern Light), and Kristian Blak, artistic director of the music festival Summartónar, have arranged trips with musicians and audiences to seacaves, into which one can enter in smaller boats, utilizing the natural sounds and unique acoustics of the caves as integral parts of the music. The collaboration with Summartónar brings visiting musicians in addition to local performers into these unique Faroese concert halls.
Sceduled concerts on Sundays and Tuesdays from june to september 2020.
You can hire Norðlýsið and crew for your own adventure. Make it a fishing trip or a trip with good food and a relaxing soak in our special hot seawater pool.

The faroese brewery OKKARA has brewed a special brown ale to honour Norðlýsið and it's founding captain Birgir Enni who has made the ship the known and loved part of faroese culture it is today. It was presented at Birgir Enni's seventy years birthday celebration which also celebrated Norðlýsið's thirty years in tourism in his capable hands.
