At the heart of everything we do is the desire to make a positive impact and enrich the lives of those we meet along the way. We believe that travel is a more enjoyable and rewarding experience when you know that your trip is directly benefiting others. That's why we make it easy for you to travel in a way that positively contributes to the people and places you visit.
We strive to maintain a high level of guest satisfaction while also raising awareness about sustainability on our beloved island.
Armgarð and Ansgar Sørensen
Our love of travel, and passion for adventure and the great outdoors led us to investigate potential tourism ideas back in 2018. We realized that there was an opportunity to offer small, personal, guided group tours on our lovely Island. ARA Tours was founded in 2019 by me together with my sister Anita and brother Ragnar. Herby by the name ARA. As Suðuroy is probably the most unique island in the Faroe Island due to its easily accessible nature and it is easy to come around, we felt there was a space to create a unique travel experience. Our concept is carefully crafted to ensure that our guests get to see the very best of the place we call home. On the daily it is my wife Armgarð and I who is running ARA Tours where I am the tour guide, and my wife is the anchor and my support. When I am not working as a tour guide, I am a freelance Captain on vessels in the Northsea. My wife is working as an accountant.

“Welcome to green tourism on Suðuroy”
“One of Europe's last undiscovered destinations, the Faroe Islands live up to their slogan: untouched, unexplored, and unbelievable. It feels unlike any other place in Europe”
