The Faroe Islands Travel Guide

Accessible only via plane or ferry, the remote and otherworldly Faroe Islands comprise an archipelago of eighteen wild, green and steeply pitching isles buffeted by North Atlantic winds, making for days of unforgettable adventure and some fascinating insight into Denmark’s former colonial territories (though islanders prefer the term “autonomous region”). The islands are characterized by Denmark’s most dramatic scenery and an abundance of sheep – which, incidentally, outnumber humans and have fuelled the trade in Faroese woollen products since being worn by the cast in the iconic Danish TV series The Killing. Krone is the currency, and Danish and English are understood.
