Introducing the Faroe Islands

One of Europe’s best-kept secrets, this mysterious destination encompasses a forgotten string of 18 islands with bright cottages and rustic beauty that melds Scandinavian heritage with a love of art and music.

When is the best time to visit?
While summer is generally the best time to visit, the weather in the Faroes changes at the drop of the hat. Expect chilly temperatures and always bring layers.

Where to go in the Faroe Islands?
Discover this seemingly untouched gem by starting at the largest island, Streymoy, and the capital Tórshavn. Take a boat tour to the bird cliffs of Vestmanna, trek the dramatic and verdantly green bluffs, island hop via the impressive network of subsea tunnels and bridges, attend a music festival or run a marathon, and eat homemade and organic Faroese food with farmers who grew it in this land that is home to more sheep than people.

How many days do I need?
Plan on spending a week, give or take, in the Faroe Islands to fit in all the charming aspects of this rustic way of life.

Faroe extension, the Faroe Islands - Jul 1 - Jul 8, 2019

Traveler: Kaye D. - Local specialist: David Whale

Every day was with a different guide. Every day was unique. David adjusted the itinerary to my mobility limitation and the weather. All was good. The day on Suduroy with David was special. We got o observe a sheep shearing. The helicopter return from Mykines was a rare treat. And the "frosting on the cake" was happening onto a folk music concert at the Nordens Hus on the last day.
