Perched in the North Atlantic Ocean, only a short flight from mainland Europe, the jagged cliffs of the Faroe Islands will take your breath away. This is a true adventure destination, not necessarily for the active nature of a visit, but for the feeling of remoteness and isolation. To us, the Faroe Islands are a hidden secret not sought by many, and spending time here will give you an unforgettable experience of remote living at the edge of the open sea.
"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
We can tailor-make a self-drive holiday for you or join a guided tour.
Faroe Islands are known for their florescent green colour, incredibly lush and of course, wet! A little like Ireland, in that visitors will need to enjoy the pleasure of rain. The islands are well known for fishing, specialists for (makeral). It has a very small population with little villages scattered around the island. To access walks here, you need to search higgledy piggledy roads and ask an occasional local. The area is a birdwatchers paradise with sea cliffs shared with the magical puffin. A sense of remoteness that you can touch!
Many houses in the Faroe Islands (and Vágar and Mykines) have grass roofs. Sheep – not mowing machines – are used for mowing the grass!
