Guidelines for Mykines
The island of Mykines is one of the most beautiful places in the whole country. Its rich birdlife (hundreds of puffins!) and awe-inspiring beauty have made it into one of the most popular destinations for travelers – rightly so!
It is of utmost importance that the birdlife and nature on the island are preserved and protected. As such, new regulations have been implemented.
Please book in advance
Between 1 May and 31 August, each person traveling to Mykines must pay DKK 100 if they wish to travel beyond the small village area (this includes the hike out to the lighthouse at the end of the island, Mykineshólmur).
