Faroe Islands

A place like no other on earth. An idyllic escape, peacefully set among lush green valleys, imposing basalt cliffs, grand treeless moorlands and waterfalls plunging directly into the wind whipped ocean. Unfathomable beauty, mysteriously tucked away like a figment of a child's imagination. The 18 volcanic islands which make up the Faroe Islands resemble a handful of rocks scattered haphazardly in the deep-sea ocean. Home to mountains of myth, hobbit-like turf-roofed houses and grazing shaggy sheep, these islands make up the perfect playground for your senses...Welcome to Faroe Islands!

Experience the Winter Islands

Independent, Self Drive
6 days, 5 nights
Dates: October, 2017 - April, 2018

The Faroe Islands is becoming a more and more popular destination to visit and has over the last years made numerous “top 10” lists of places to go. Most people visit during the summertime but why not be an adventurer and experience the wild Nordic beauty in wintertime. The ever-changing weather will form the experience; you will see waterfalls flow upwards, spun into the sky as vortices by the wind. Surrounded by empty ocean, the islands are illuminated by an ethereal light. The sun shoots above the horizon. The sea changes from indigo to slate, pewter, then silver within seconds and at night there is a fair chance of seeing the northern lights.

The Faroe Islands is a dream destination for those who love nature and outdoor activities. It’s an exceptional place to travel in because there is no need to go far to experience outstanding, ever changing, stunning, roaring and serene Faroese nature. As much of the more rugged scenery is accessible only by foot, a great way to explore the islands is to hike around them. There are footpaths on all the islands, some marked with cairns which function as inland lighthouses to aid walkers’ navigation between villages.
