Solar Eclipse Hikes in Fuglafjørður

The Information Office in Fuglafjørður At 7 am, depending on the weather, two hikes will start off in different directions.

 • A hike to ‘the Altar’, a large rock formation on a mountain ridge known as the Altar. Although it is about 480m above sea level, it is a relatively easy hike as the slope is comparatively gentle. Depending on the visibility, the view at the Altar is stunning over the surrounding islands and of the solar eclipse.

 • A hike to ‘Húsar’ about 300m above sea level. Húsar are the remains of an old shelter where villagers could seek refuge when pirates in the old days paid the village an unwelcome visit. This hike is shorter, but more difficult as it involves some climbing up to the plateau, where visitors will have a splendid view of the village, the fiord, and the solar eclipse.

A lone trumpet will play the Faroese national anthem as the moon lets the sun’s rays reach earth again. We suggest that hikers pick up a small rock on their way to the Altar to create a cairn to commemorate the solar eclipse. Price DKr. 150 cash at start; please book ahead at tel. 238017 or infoey-f@olivant.fo
