"Kimkim is the perfect solution for independent travelers who are too busy to plan it all themselves" - Gayle R., traveled with kimkim in October 2019

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.

Tummus and the Faroe Islands - a fantastic guide and incredible nature · the Faroe Islands - Jul 3 - Jul 11, 2021

Traveler: Kathi D. - Local specialist: Tummas Rubeksen

One of the best trips I've been on! Our guide, Tummas, was pure joy. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, prepared and fun. Because the weather is unpredictable, he always had a plan "B" which for us was as good as "Plan A". Lunches were delicious and fresh. The daily trips were well planned and we loved being able to experience some the of hidden gems and experience some of the local, off the beaten track cafes and restaurants. I will remember this trip always and will never forget the kindness and generosity of the people of the Faroe Islands and Tummas. A must holiday.

Traveler: Surekha P. - Local specialist: Tummas Rubeksen

A taxi picked us up at the airport.
Taxi transfer to airport.
It was good but felt like there was not much to do. We were on our own a lot of the time.
The printed itinerary felt like there was a lot to do.

The Mulafossur waterfall was amazing.
We sat the trollfingur and the giant and the hag.
The old capital was adorable. The scenery was stunning. We did an amazing hike with Tummas in the mountains. Wow. Scared and enjoyed it at the same time.
