Lying halfway between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, midway between Norway and Iceland, the Faroe Islands (Faroes) are an archipelago made up of 18 wild, green islands under Danish sovereignty. See itinerary ideas
This remote scatter of islands is connected by an intricate maze of road tunnels, ferries and helicopters. Streymoy is the largest island and the location of the capital Torshavn, one of the world’s smallest capital cities. There’s also some spectacular scenery, vertiginous cliffs and rugged headlands nearby.
Travel to the islands is either by boat or by plane. Visitors tend to come in order to get close to nature, explore the remote fjords and uncover hidden corners. Set out from the multi-coloured turf-covered cottages to go in search of nesting seabirds, puffins, skuas and fulmars as well as unforgettable adventure.
