Rappelling on Norðbergseiði
It is done in the traditional Faroese way, which has been used when collecting eggs or birds in a sustainable way for centuries. It was called "síging" or "at síga". You will hang in a strong line and around 8 men will hold on to the line in the other end and gently let the line glide down along the steep mountain side. There are two options: Either they will pull you up again or you will land on the rock shelf down by the sea and enter the boat Tornado and go for sightseeing. Sometimes the rappelling is combined with a boat trip with Tornado of RIB62 and sometimes it is without the boat.
Please see www.siging.info for more information and to make further arrangements.

The land in this lovely small island Lítli Dímun is owned by around 40 people from Hvalba and Sandvík. They have sheep on Litli Dimon and go there by boat a few times every year. A few years ago they started to arrange trips to the island for tourists. Mostly they arrange two excursions per. year, one in June and one in July. On the first excursion they usually stay the night there in a large tent, watching the sunset and the sunrise, which is almost at the same time, being the longest day of the year. The excursions may be cancelled or changed to another day due to the weather conditions. The "Lítli Dímun Group" has a website, which is unfortunately only is in Faroese: www.ldimun.com .
