If you have a car, you can come close to the top of Beinisvørð by taking the former village road between Lopra and Sumba (now most people use only the tunnel). When you come to Hesturin, you can park your car and get out and enjoy the view. Of course you can walk, if you prefer. If you take the public bus, you might be able to persuade the driver to take the mountain road instead of the tunnel. If you wish to see Beinisvørð from a distance, you can drive or walk up to Eggjarnar south of Vágur, you find the road to the right after the Shell gas station in Vágur. It is possible to drive all the way up to Eggjarnar, and the view is absolutely worth a visit, it is breathtaking. Be careful not to go too far out, there is no fence for protection. You can also see Beinisvørð from Lopranseiði (only by feet from Ónavík near Lopra). Boat trips can be arranged, if the weather is good.
