    Lovely & easy walk to a rugged coast but be sure to check the tide charts - you want to go and return at low tide.

    Lovely and easy walk on low tide. One of our company jumped in the water. Be careful if you do that, the rip is strong and the water is cold.

    Hi Mostraum, you are also very "strong" to jump in the water !

  • Mostraum Aug 2, 2016

    I didn't, one of the others I walked with was crazy enough to do that.

    I had already heard and read that Saksun is to be visited at your own risk, so to say, because of one or two rather unfriendly locals. While I do understand you don t want to get near houses, leave gates open or leave rubbish as a visitor, I still do not understand how you are allowed to block access onto the beach beyond. I just followed the route as indicated on the official sign next to the parking lot where you are allowed no further by car as indicated. I saw none but other walkers returning, and past the tarmac there are no houses anyhow. A fantastic walk by any means. The sun was out in full force and in the sand by the lake you can already see how far the tide comes in. I reached the beach with the tide coming in (timetable at start of the walk) and though the place was glorious with waves thundering all around I felt uneasy about this incoming tide (4 hrs to go for high tide) because the access further back is narrow and vertical. So I had lunch by the lake further upstream. Still saw no one and no idea how I could upset anyone. I hope the tourist council and the locals get their signs and regulation in sync so it is clear for all to see because this seems to be a wider spread problem.

    Very nice trail. However you have to pay to access to the beach and this information was missing.

    Hola XaviVB, nosotros no tuvimos que pagar nada, por eso no lo he hecho constar en la publicacion, pero fue en el 2014, si es que han puesto "peaje" despues, no me puedo enterar.
    De hecho es que no vimos a practicamente nadie por alli, ni mucho menos habia ninguna valla ni señal.

    Si, actualmente hay que pagar para muchas de las excursiones en Feroe. Una lástima. Aunque supuestamente los fondos van destinados al mantenimiento de la fauna i la flora locales.
