The Irish monk, St. Brendan, described in the middle of the sixth century. Mykines is the mysterious “paradise of birds” Still today one can't describe Mykines better.
The foremost resident of Mykines in the summer is the puffin. During the summer months Mykines is The home of thousands upon thousands of migratory seabirds. This little creature is one of the main attractions for visitors. Its brightly coloured bill and its willingness to remain posed with fish in its beak, makes the puffin the ideal photo opportunity for any budding ornithologist.
Apart from the excursion to the stone forest in the valley Korkadalur, the towering summit of 560 metre Knúkur awaits the hiker. It is only some three kilometres away from the village, but the climb can be difficult. Less strenuous is the delightful trek out to Mykineshólmur, a small islet on the western side of Mykines. Mykines is the perfect haven for solitary retreat.
