Walk at your own pace on different islands on a self-guided, non-group walking holiday in the Faroes. We arrange car hire, as well as accommodation at welcoming hotels, and supply you with our reliable route notes, leaving you free to enjoy your dramatic, untamed surroundings.
‘Extraordinary’ is a fitting adjective for the Faroe Islands. Walking holidays on this remote archipelago are likely to leave you feeling humbled by the forces of nature. These being Slow holidays, we encourage you to take the time to appreciate how the weather and changing light transform the landscapes – you’re not part of a group, and can take your pick of our suggested walks (we arrange car hire to help you get around), so make the most of it, following our highly praised route notes at your own pace.
We meticulously researched the walking opportunities on this archipelago in the Norwegian Sea before settling on three islands: Bordoy, Eysturoy and Streymoy. But, thanks to the bridges, tunnels and boats connecting the islands, island-hopping is easy, so we also suggest day trips to Fugloy, Kalsoy and Nólsoy so that you can discover even more of the archipelago and enjoy some of the best walking the Faroes Islands have to offer.
