This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, two-centre walk
  • island-hopping adventure in the North Atlantic
  • landscapes of elemental wonder
  • experience a proud seafaring culture and unique way of life
  • memorable walking and driving routes

This remote outpost of 18 volcanic islands, occupying a lonely patch of the Norwegian Sea midway between north-west Scotland and south-east Iceland, is one of the few places in Europe where life still moves at a beguilingly Slow pace. This is not a destination for adhering to a packed schedule, ticking off the sights or topping up a tan. It’s a place to immerse yourself in the forces of nature; to give yourself over to the vagaries of the climate and to join a hardy local people in respecting – worshipping, even – the awe-inspiring and unyielding landscapes (and seascapes) that surround you.
The Faroe Islands are not your run-of-the-mill holiday destination. This is a remote land where the sheep are fearless, the birds are shrewd and the weather is a state of mind.
     
The Guardian
And what surroundings they are! Characterised by an all-pervading and austere beauty, they leave an indelible impression on each and every visitor. Towering, layer-cake mountains and magnificent, sheer-sided sea cliffs – teeming with birdlife – plunge into the churning swells of the Atlantic far below; while, amid deep and rounded glacial valleys, thundering cascades, sparkling streams and charming clusters of human habitation vie for your attention. These Faroese towns and villages, with their turf-roofed and timber-framed houses, painted in defiant shades of red, yellow and blue, keep the worst of the weather at bay and offer snug and cosy bases for you to plan a series of unforgettable days out.
