Absolutely incredible! We got very lucky and had a sunny day, couldn’t have asked for better views! Highly recommend

Amazing views, totally worth it. Uphill the whole time, and quite steep at parts. Maybe because there aren’t trees and things for scale, it doesn’t look very long or steep just looking at it, but it is actually a longer and steeper hole than it looks. The first part is grassy and pretty easy. The next part is rocky with some scrambling involved, and gravelly at parts. Poles would be helpful up and especially down this part for someone with bad knees. The trail is marked with blue plastic poles until this point. You can’t actually see the summit until you get to the top of this rocky part, but it’s not too far or difficult from there, though very rocky and basically no real trail (no more blue pole markers either), you just walk straight up. The cairns to the left at this point will lead you to the cliffs of ennigsberg, not the summit. I recommend going up to the summit, then down the other side down the the cliffs. You can walk out on to them and it’s really beautiful views. Then from there you can follow the cairns back to the trail. On a clear day you can see six or seven of the other islands, really spectacular. I would allow at least five hours to include stopping to rest and appreciate the views take pictures, eat a snack, etc, and to walk out to the cliffs once at the summit. It’s strenuous at parts and you will feel it the next day, but I think anyone in normal health/fitness can do it, just might take a little longer for breaks and slower pace.

Realistically this is a moderate trail and not easy. Not one you can take your old mum to. The first steep climb is through very narrow paths with mud - careful as the mud is slippery regardless of how good your shoes are. Pieces of mud can suddenly slide down with you. Then going back down here is easier through the grass, watch your step. The plateau part has the same narrow paths and your feet will be on incline at all times - so prepare your ankles. There are lots of rivlets to cross/jump over which can pose some dificulty to some. The climb to the lighthouse is steep but easy and as the trail is drier. Overall great views, and so worth it.

Park down in town and walk to the red gate at the end of the road, then up the hill beyond (mostly sheep pasture). Note that this app (and our trail) indicate two paths — this is true but recommend sticking to the lowest one as the higher one starts/ends in a deep ravine that is hard to negotiate. Once you’ve come around the headlands, it’s a steep but straightforward climb up the hill straight ahead to the small lighthouse. The views are magnificent. Brave the high winds to walk out onto both ridges that stick out perpendicularly to the light house for different and worthy views as well. This was one of the busiest trails we encountered on the Faroes, with two or three dozen people spread out over the slopes in a shoulder season visit.

Stunning views at the end, beautiful hike until then. Absolutely recommended. If it has been raining, the initial ascent is very slippery! Also, the 'easy' rating is relative. Have been on 'moderate' hikes that were same level.

My favourite hike in the Faroes. Great excuse to visit another island and the views, as expected, are terrific. It's not very well signposted but not difficult to find with a bit of prior planning. Head through the gate at the end of the parking area and bear right over the hill to the old sheep pen. From there it's pretty much straight ahead and you'll see the lighthouse well before you reach it
