Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands is an archipelago of 18 mountainous islands located halfway between Iceland and Scotland in the North Atlantic Ocean. The islands are believed to have been first settled in 300 AD, although archaeologists cannot say by whom. According to stories passed down through generations, the first known settlers were Irish monks in the sixth century.

Home to mountains of myth, hobbit-like turf-roofed houses, and grazing shaggy sheep, these islands make up the perfect playground for the senses. They inexplicably unearth a soothing sound of stillness and a touch of rawness, only bettered by the taste of the freshest air and the sight of sprawling landscapes in any direction.

Few communities as small can boast of equally vibrant art and music scene, while Faroese gastronomy has never been more highly thought of. The decidedly slow pace of life on the islands lends itself to hospitable kinfolk and laid-back living.

But all is not slow and easy-going. The islands are also an adrenaline junkie’s dream, with no shortage of fast-paced activities on land and sea.

All of this and more creates a unique and inimitable destination at the edge of the world.

A place truly unspoiled, unexplored, and unbelievable.
