Photography adventure, the Faroe Islands - Aug 13 - Aug 19, 2019
Everything about our trip was simply incredible, we enjoyed every moment of it and the breathtaking scenery of the Faroe Islands will stay in our memory for a long time. Overall we were 5 days in the Faroe Islands and I think it was the perfect amount of days we needed to see all the great things there.
David, Tummas and Barđur were amazing guides! Every day was a new adventure and they told us so many interesting things about the places we were visiting.

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