Jul 5 - Jul 6
A chain of subarctic islands located between Iceland, Scotland, and Norway, the Faroes offer a treeless landscape of rolling grasslands and heath dotted by dramatic cliffs and Scandinavian-style villages. Due to the islands' fishing-based economy and harsh winter climate, tourism revolves around small-town life during the short summer season.
On the main island of Stremoy, the southern half is dominated by the capital, Torshavn, home to about 20,000 inhabitants and to most hotels in the Faroe Islands. In Torshvan you'll find the Nordic Cultural Center, a stunning glass-walled building considered one of the most beautiful in Scandinavia. Stay at one of the Faroe Islands resorts to explore the capital. To the north, the villages of Saksun and Vestmanna offer a glimpse of the simple life, and beyond them, the Vestmanna cliffs rise over 1,600 feet. At the island's southern tip, the equally dramatic cliffs of Kirkjubour offer a picturesque backdrop for fishing or pleasure cruising. To the west of Stremoy, the island of Vagar is home to Sorvagur and the Faroese airport, with Sørvágur flights arriving daily. From here you can head to the tiny island of Mykines, known for its sea bird populations and relative isolation. To the northeast, Eysturoy features a dramatic, steep landscape with small villages, including Fuglafjordur, which features a colorful harbor, a nearby warm spring that is a popular destination for locals during the summer, and a cultural center that showcases the history and culture of the Faroese people.
