What to see in Faroe Islands
Tourist attractions Mykines
Known as the bird-watchers paradise, the island of Mykines is inhabited by numerous species of birds, some of them still unknown. Among the most famous are the small puffins, which for years have been one of the most iconic images of the Faroe Islands. There are also abundant seabirds and mammals such as hares, which live mainly in the most mountainous areas of the island. The most characteristic trait of the island is its tranquility, since there are hardly any cars, except some tractors that are used to work the land. Sometimes the island runs the risk of being cut off, although when the weather permits it can be accessed by boat or helicopter.
