Kalsoy, Bordhoy

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Bordhoy
Hike the hilly terrain of Kalsoy and bring your binoculars for this designated Important Bird Area. With just four settlements, the population here remains very small--yet 13 peaks and an abundance of Atlantic puffins, black guillemots, and European storm petrels are a real treat for nature enthusiasts. Head to the large lighthouse in the north, from which you can observe the varied landscape and the sea. Our Bordhoy trip itinerary planning site makes visiting Kalsoy and other Bordhoy attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The western coast has dramatically steep cliffs for the full length of the island, whereas idyllic valleys on the eastern slopes protect the four tiny settlements, Húsar, Mikladalur, Syðradalur and Trøllanes, whose combined populations total less than 150. They are connected by a partly-surfaced road which passes through four dark tunnels. The island's thin shape and road-tunnels give it the nickname "the flute". There is a lighthouse at Kallur, the northern tip of Kalsoy.
  • Well worth a visit, very tranquil place.
