10 ideas to experiencing the Faroe Islands
In the middle of the North Atlantic only a day and a half by boat from Europe’s mainland, the Faroe Islands are encircled by 1,289 km of coastline. Nowhere is further than 5 km from the sea.
We warmly recommend the grandiose land and seascapes of the Faroe Islands. The archipelago is known for its mild winters and cool summers, but regardless of the season, you will be immersed in spectacular panoramas as soon as you sail into its fjords.
Nature is of unfathomable significance here, and its influence on local culture can hardly be overestimated. The natural surroundings are firmly embedded in the inhabitants’ character and way of thinking.
The population of almost 52,000 is spread across the 17 inhabited islands, which are interlinked by a superb network of roads, tunnels and ferries.
The Faroese are a warm, generous, friendly and hospitable people. They are familyoriented, down-to-earth and have great respect for tradition. A salient characteristic of the Faroese is how open they are to tourists. The Faroese are proud of their country and culture and they are eager to show visitors the finest the Faroe Islands have to offer.
