About Faroe Islands
The Faroe Islands are a cluster of 18 islands in the North Atlantic which are situated between Norway and Iceland and are a self-governing island territory of Denmark. The islands are known for their breathtaking, unusual landscape, featuring dramatic mountains and rugged swathes of largely desolate lava fields. To avoid the crowds, late May or early June are the ideal times of year to visit, when the weather won’t be so bitterly cold and you can avoid the summer holiday rush.
This really is the ultimate unique destination for anyone who wants to be at one with nature, with the dazzling blue ocean, picturesque valleys and almost alien landscapes. Cycling, hiking and pony trekking are some of the most popular activities, along with boat trip connecting the islands for a variety of ways to see the spectacular natural features. Get to grips with traditional Nordic folklore by visiting Risin og Kellingin, or The Giant and his Wife, two giant basalt sea stacks off the coast, and learn about the legend surrounding them.
