== Hiking Trips ==
Hiking trips are popular and can be recommended in Suðuroy. Be aware of fog and make preparations before you go. A mountain can end very sudden and without any warning sign. There are many cairns in Suðuroy, they were used in stead of roads in the old days. There are also guided hiking trips, which the Tourist Information or private persons arrange. Ask on one of the Tourist Information Centres, if you want to know when and where these guided trips are made. More info on the website: www.visitsuduroy
.fo or www.vilt.fo.
== Boat Trips ==
There are two fast going boats (RIB), which make boat trips along the west coast of Suðuroy or wherever you wish to go. If you are a group it is cheaper, if it is a planned trip the price is around DKK 350. The boats are called Tornado and Scorpion.
The old English smack Johanna TG326 from Vágur sometimes makes boat trips for tourist and can also be hired for shorter or longer trips but with the regular crew to sail the vessel. Johanna was built in 1884 in [[Sussex]], [[England]].
