The archipelago known as the Faroe Islands is about halfway between Iceland and Norway. It is a nation that is extremely rugged, challenging, but still quite inviting.

The weather is typically wet, cloudy, and cool during a visit – and not to mention windy, thanks to its location within the Gulf Stream. Although the islands are part of the sovereign state of Denmark, they have been a self-governing entity since 1948.

It is true that the Faroe Islands are often thought of as being small and remote, but the Faroese also offer one of the most intriguing areas to explore in the world today. Tower cliffs rise above you as you explore hidden seaways. Ancient fishing villages offer a rustic experience that is altogether satisfying. Then there is the focus on traditions, which often combines Norse and Viking ideas into one incredible experience.

You can explore the small communities of Streymoy and Torshavn, enjoying the thriving markets and friendly atmosphere. Plan your stay for St. Olaf’s Day and the other summer festivals. Or take advantage of the stark beauty that winter brings to the mountains of the Faroese for a different, but still thrilling experience.

If you are craving an adventure that is unique and authentic, then the Faroe Islands must be at the top of your list. The high quality of life here is an art form all its own, deserving to be experienced by one and all at least once in a lifetime.

It is one of the cloudiest places on the planet, averaging about 2.4 hours of sunshine per day. When visiting Torshavn, or anywhere on the islands, you’re never more than 5km from the ocean.
