Nólsoy - Hike to the eastside of Nólsoy
A hike with an acquainted guide to the the eastside of Nólsoy.
The eastside of Nólsoy is scarred by heavy surf and stands in contrast to the mild west side, that is visible from Tórshavn.
On our hike we will pass through the old settlement in Cornvalley, where legends say that a Scottish princess once lived.
From here we walk to the historical execution place on the Cross. Our next stop is the world’s largest storm petrel colony in Hvíturð - you will not se any storm petrels during the day, since they are only active during the night, but you might hear them.
If we are lucky, will see puffins and fulmar in their natural environment. After a good break we turn around and return to the village of Nólsoy, where you can enjoy the quiet or visit some of the interesting places in the village.
