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.

Top notch outfit. Tummas was my guide and was able to modify the tour based upon my activity level. Extremely knowledgeable about Faroese culture and history. Would not hesitate for a second to use them again.

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.

David and Heimdal Tours were excellent. Their service is personalized and they are dedicated to making your tour as smooth and convenient as possible. They will cater to your interests and are quick to respond to all inquiries and questions. They appear to be committed to highlighting and preserving local Faroese culture without exploiting local communities. We had a great time in the Faroe Islands and are very glad we experienced the islands with this tour group.
