Adrift in the whirling rhythmic North Atlantic Sea, a different world lingers. A place like no other on earth.
An idyllic escape, peacefully set among lush green valleys, imposing basalt cliffs and waterfalls plunging directly into the wind whipped ocean.
The 18 jagged volcanic islands resemble a handful of rocks scattered haphazardly in the deep-sea ocean. Home to mountains of myth, hobbit-like turf-roofed houses and grazing shaggy sheep, these islands make up the perfect playground for the senses.
Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean only two hours by plane from mainland Europe the 18 mountainous islands of the Faroe Islands offer 1,289 kilometers of coastline and a proximity of no more than five kilometers to the ocean from any point of the islands.
The close proximity provides the visitor with a variety of experiences of nature – from dramatic landscapes meeting the wild ocean to the peacefulness of the mountains to the nightlife of the capital Tórshavn.
