Sail on freshwater lake Sørvágsvatn/Leitisvatn with Lakeside Sightseeing
Sail on freshwater lake Sørvágsvatn/Leitisvatn with Lakeside Sightseeing.
The trip with the boat Lakeside on the Sørvágsvatn/Leitisvatn lake, is the only one of its kind in the Faroes. Here you will sit in comfort as in a conservatory with a fantastic view and glide across the large expanse of water.
The tour starts from a jetty in the village of Vatnsoyrar, which was called ‘Lakeside’ by the English soldiers who were stationed here during the Second World War, over to the lake’s south side where you disembark and walk to the waterfall Bøsdalafossur.
This is a three in one experience as you firstly, experience the beautiful nature of the Faroe Islands both on the lake and on shore, secondly, storytelling about local history and legend from the local guide and thirdly coffee/tea and homemade cake is included in the experience.
The boat itself is mainly made from recycle material among other things a caravan a conservatory and seats from a local airline company. There are 19 seats on the boat.
Tours can be arranged by request. The duration of the tour is about three hours and includes tea/coffee and cake. Tailormade tours can also be arranged.
