ABOUT US

Who are we?

MM Travel & Tours was founded by the two brothers who’s last name is Matras, when they were tired of their more typical, everyday jobs. While Magnus was spending his days at an oil rig in Norway, Harry remained at home in the Faroe Islands studying. The realization came between the two of them that it was time to take advantage of the beauty of their home, and combine it with something they love. Their passion for the culture of the Faroe Islands and its beautiful, dramatic scenery is on full display through out each of their tours.

In addition to Harry & Magnus, the full team is made up of some other professional tour guides & drivers from all corners of the Faroe Islands.

Harry K. Matras

Harry K. Matras serves as a guide on most tours. He is very knowledgeable about the Faroe Islands and always happy to provide any extra info about any topic really .

Magnus H. Matras

Magnus is doing a bit of everything, and works as a driver and co-guide on most excursions.

Our Main Goal

Our main focus is to ensure our guests the best possible experience while visiting our spectacular islands

And at the same time preserve and protect our fragile nature, and all of its diversity

No trip to the Faroe Islands is complete without MM Tours Part of the allure of the Faroe Islands is its people. Harry and Magnus are brothers who led the daily tours (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) and without a doubt, they are the reason MM Tours is a success. Besides the small tour size - there were 4, 7, and 12 (respectively) people on each tour - Harry and Magnus give insight, knowledge, and laughter that no tour book or self-guided trip can provide. One highlight of these tours is the unscripted and impromptu conversations the guests have with the guides. Yes, the basics are covered, but if you have an interest in a specific topic (education, infrastructure, politics), both guides can wax poetic. The bus has WiFi, but you shouldn’t have to connect to it since you want to listen and see every moment. The bus also stops at a lot of great photo opps, so don’t fret about taking photos through the bus windows. Lunch is served on each tour and is delicious. A sandwich (salmon and chicken), apple, muffin, and your choose of beverage. I went for the local Faroese beer which was a perfect compliment to the meal. #ProTip - wear legit hiking boots. Even if your tour doesn’t include a hike. With the weather being unpredictable, it’s important to have a solid shoe to walk through rain and mud. If (when) I come back with friends and/or family - I will be sure to book with MM Tours.

MM - the best choice on Faroe islands! I had taken a few tours and all of them were absolutely great! I totally recommend choosing this company to get your visiting needs met! The day on Mykines and the Vestmanna bird cliffs tours were the highlight of my trip. All the guides are fenomenal and they make the journey one of a kind. They are fun and will go out of their way to make you feel great. When i'll be back (cause i will) will not spend one second thinking what company i should use.

Best way to see the Faroe Islands We have made a tour through all the islands, where they took us to amazing places, that otherwise, we would not find. Besides we could learn about the history and culture of Faroe, which make it more special. And last but not least, Magnus and Harry show great motivation and passion for what they do. Thanks for an amazing trip!

True experiences in Faroe islands I visited Faroe Islands to enjoy outdoor activities and spent my birthday. What makes their tours special is, they offer extra and unique experiences for us! For example when we visited Mykines, we could spent time at local’s house which usually ordinal tourists cannot do, and that was the cutest house and interiors I have ever seen! Also Hurry and Magnus are experienced Faroese tour guides - they have knowledge about the place, culture and outdoor activities so I could count on them during my trekking and hiking. I’ve heard they are planning more tour plans in the future so very excited about it! I’d like to come back to Faroe Islands and definitely try other adventures with them! Thank you very much for making my birthday brilliant, Magnus and Hurry! Ai

Couldn't ask for more! I'm so glad to see M&M back! Magnus and Harry will treat you like royalty during this trip, providing background, history, and cultural importance of virtually every site you visit. There are plenty of opportunities to explore on your own or hike up some of the well-traveled trails into the mountains. Lunch and refreshments are provided. They are the best tour company in the Faroes!

Amazing tour to hidden gems The two brothers Magnus and Harry are the perfect duo for the ideal tour in the Faroe Islands. Typically I avoid going on tours when I travel because I don't want to be herded around on an impersonal tour with loads of strangers, however, this tour was quite the exception. Magnus and Harry were both entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about the history and the most beautiful places on the islands. I would have missed so much on this trip if I hadn't met them and joined their tour. I had the best time, and I HIGHLY recommend booking them on your trip to the stunning islands.

Worth it! So glad we went on this trip! You get to see many small villages and special places. We did not go on the hike, and I am glad we did not, because then we got to see Mykladalur and this was my favorite village. Our tour guide Jørgen was fantastic. No matter the question, he could answer them all! Everything from history to geology to sports and politics. We learned so much from him and the driving was very comfortable. Even though there are Islands, you only need to take the ferry once, due to tunnels and bridges. For my traveling companian who is scared of water, this was no problem. Highly recomend this tour.

Nature, history, folklore - this tour has it all! This was an incredible tour around the northern most islands of the Faroes! Our guide was brilliant, knowledgeable, friendly and his love for his homeland evident in the way he talks about it with visitors. If you want to explore some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and learn about the history and legends of these islands, than this tour is the one of you! Was thoroughly exhausted by the end of the day, but had learnt and seen so much, it was fantastic! The ONLY reason I didn't give them 5 stars (or indeed, 6 or 7, the tour was worth it!) was due to a miscommunication about the start time of the tour that meant I was stood out in the changeable Faroese weather for over an hour... and this was after emailing them to confirm the time the week before. This being said, the tour itself was amazing and I will definitely travel with MM again, takk fyri!
