Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands might be wet, windy, foggy and cold, but they are also home to some of the world’s most beautiful and dramatic views. They are the perfect destination for nature lovers, hiking enthusiasts, photography nerds and those on a hunt for unique and unexplored destinations.

The Faroe Islands are an autonomous territory of the Kingdom of Denmark and home to just over 53,000 inhabitants out of which 40% live in the capital, Torshavn. They comprise 18 rocky and grassy volcanic islands and 17 of those are inhabited. Some of the islands are only reachable by ferry or helicopter, while the main, bigger ones are well connected by car or public transportation via underwater and mountain tunnels.
