Here are a few adventures you can expect at Átjan Wild Islands 2023. These will be available for ticket holders to book in May/June 2023.


Take to the cool waters and discover the mesmerising colours of sea kelp and seaweed as you swim in amongst the coves at Old Hoyvík. 


Kayaking in the Faroe Islands is an adventurous way to explore the natural beauty of the islands at sea level and see the stunning landscape from a whole different perspective. 

The kayaks are sea-kayaks that are very safe, and you'll be paddling in in either double or single kayaks. Drysuits, lifejackets and safety equipment is included.


One for the adventure-inspired, this day takes you to the craggy cliff edges of the Faroe Islands for an exhilarating few hours of cliff-jumping and cave swimming. Once you're in the ice-cool waters, you'll get a chance to explore the stunning sea caves and sea cliffs only accessibly by boat.


Re-invigorate with a dip in the ice cool waters of the Faroe Islands. Hire a board off the bay of Tjørnuvík - a paradise for cold water surfers - and ride the exhilarating waves of the North Atlantic. Faroese surfers - experts in the local conditions - will be at hand to give you insights on how best to take on the waves just off the Arctic Circle. 

Stand-up Paddle-boarding (SUP)

Experience a gentle paddle off-shore with an experienced SUP guide. You'll get to see the Faroe Islands from a different angle, paddling around cliffs, hidden coves, and beaches. 

Rock Climbing

With its wild, mountainous landscape and steep cliffs, the Faroe Islands is a climbing gem rising out the North Atlantic. 

Climbers with some experienced seeking new challenges in new surroundings are catered for on these sessions.  The technical difficulty will average at 4c-6ab and you may be required to secure other climbers.

Please note; some rappelling may be required or in the event of poor weather the climbing session may be replaced entirely with a rappelling session.
