10 Best Places to Visit in Faroe Islands

Top Places to See in the Faroe Islands

Top Places to See in the Faroe Islands

Welcome to the Faroe Islands! The Faroe Islands in Danish means the Islands of the Sheep, and you will see why! It’s located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean about 400 miles off the coast of Northern Europe, between Norway and Iceland. The first people to colonize the islands were Norwegians about 1,200 years ago and it become a major Viking settlement in that time. Its main industries are fishing and tourism - people come to experience its natural beauty, incredible bird life and delicious Faroese gastronomy.

First up is Gasadalur, which for a long time it was the most isolated town in the Faroe Islands. It’s a very popular town to hike to because of its natural scenery and its cliff views. In 2006 they opened a tunnel to make the town more accessible. Fun fact: Gasadalur means Goose Valley.

Lake Sorvagsvatn is the biggest lake in the Faroe Islands. It has an area of 3.4 sqkm, and its located on the island of Vagar, where the airport is. It takes a few hours to hike around the entire lake, so get your hiking boots ready! The best way to see the lake is by helicopter, the only way to see the lake emptying out into the Atlantic Ocean.

Torshavn is one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world! Torshavn in Old Norse means Thor, God of Thunder. It’s a modern city with the highest concentration of hotels, restaurants and cafes in the islands. You can explore the old Tinganes district where the parliament building is. You can see the national museum, check out some galleries, see the harbor and dine at some delicious modern and traditional restaurants.

Now we head to the southernmost village in Streymoy, Kirkjubour. This was the religious center on the Faroe Islands for over 1,000 years until the reformation. We came to see the 13th century ruins of the Saint Agnes Cathedral, the House museum and a middle age church.

We head north on Streymoy to Saksun. This is a beautiful town with turf roof houses. The best time come is during low tide because you can see the beach and walk on a sand bar to the lagoon. There are no restaurants here so be sure to bring a snack for a picnic!

Tjornuvik is the northernmost town on the island of Streymoy. It’s a quiet village, but the scenery is beautiful its beach has epic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Next up is Gjogv, the northernmost town on the Island of Eysturoy, the second largest island in the Faroes. It’s a small scenic village with a charming bed and breakfast. We stayed a night, but you can just as easily just come for the day. Gjogv is undoubtedly on of most picturesque places in the Faroe Islands. The name Gjogv means gorge – it was named after the village’s natural gorge

Klaksvik is the second largest town in the country and from here you can take a ferry to Kalsoy. I suggest you pass by Bakariio Jorun (Bakery Jorun) and grab a snack or lunch. They have plenty of Danish-style toasts with different toppings, as well as homemade pastries, coffee, and beverages.

A 25-minute ferry ride will take you to Kalsoy, AKA island of the man. There is one road that travels up the east side of the island connecting a handful of villages. Kalsoy is the best place in the Faroe Islands to go hiking. Or, you can just drive around and snap tons of photos of this picturesque island.

Next is Vidoy, the northernmost island in the archipelago. Here we visited Vidareidi. The northern islands are more traditional, less modern but if you love taking photos of amazing scenery then you must visit Vidareidi.

Lastly we are heading to the Island of Mykines! We took a helicopter but you can also take a ferry. Once you arrive you need to hike about 90 minutes west to see all the sea birds. There are over a dozen species of birds like the Gannet, Fulmar, Starling, Gulls, Razorbills and the most famous that everyone comes to see are the Puffins! Be sure to bring a packed lunch, drinking water, a warm outfit, comfy shoes, and don’t forget your camera!

The Faroe Islands is an archipelago and autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark,[6][7] situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Norway and Iceland, at about 320 kilometres (200 mi) north-north-west of mainland Scotland. The total area is approximately 1,400 km2 (540 sq mi) with a 2010 population of almost 50,000 people.

The name Faroe is derived from two Faroese words which mean sheep and islands.

The Faroe Islands have been a self-governing country within the Danish Realm since 1948. Over the years, the Faroese have taken control of most domestic matters. Areas that remain the responsibility of Denmark include military defence, police, justice, currency and foreign affairs.[8] The Faroe Islands also have representatives in the Nordic Council as members of the Danish delegation.

The islands were associated with and taxed by Norway, then the Union of Kalmar, and then Denmark-Norway until 1814, when Norway was united with Sweden. Scandinavia was in political turmoil following the Sixth Coalition of the Napoleonic Wars, when the Treaty of Kiel granted Denmark control over the Faroes, Iceland and Greenland in 1814. The Danish trade monopoly ended in 1856.

Archaeological evidence shows settlers living on the Faroe Islands in two successive periods prior to the arrival of the Norse, the first between 400 and 600 AD and the second between 600 and 800 AD.[9] Scientists from Aberdeen University have also found early cereal pollen from domesticated plants, which further suggests people may have lived on the islands before the Vikings arrived.[10] Archaeologist Mike Church noted that Dicuil (see below) mentioned what may have been the Faroes. He also suggested that the people living there might have been from Ireland, Scotland or Scandinavia, with possibly groups from all three areas settling there.[11]

A Latin account of a voyage made by Saint Brendan, an Irish monastic saint who lived around 484--578, includes a description of insulae (islands) resembling the Faroe Islands. This association, however, is far from conclusive in its description.[12]

Dicuil, an Irish monk of the early 9th century, wrote a more definite account. In his geographical work De menura orbis terrae he claimed he had reliable information of heremitae ex nostra Scotia (hermits from our land of Ireland) who had lived on the northerly islands of Britain for almost a hundred years until the arrival of Norse pirates.

Iceland is a true dream destination for outdoor lovers & landscape photographers due its impressive, dramatic landscape. It is a volcanically and geologically active Nordic island country of Europe located in the North Atlantic Ocean. With its volcanoes, guysers, geothermal hot springs and its many waterfalls as well as glaciers it truly is the often claimed land of fire and ice.

Traveling Icelands Ring Road is the perfect way to get to know the country on and off the tourist paths. Therefore we took about 2 weeks to get to know Iceland properly by exploring waterfalls, canyons, hot springs, glacier caves, black beaches and of course the stunning coastlines all around the island finishing off in Reykjavik with the countries biggest music festival called „Iceland Airwaves“

Faroe Islands - the best Islands in the world

Lyrics: Jens Pauli Heinesen
Music: Elin Brimheim Heinesen

So verður sagt av monnum
at lívið er markleys neyð
eitt dýpi av gráum døgum
og børn, ið biða um breyð
Kanska er lívið sorgarlag
kanska er lívið gott
og kanska eg ein skínandi dag
beri kenslu av myrkari nátt

Í nátt er luftin so rein og klár
bládjúp og ísandi køld
foldin hvílir í hvítari tøgn
og norðlýsið reisir sær tjøld
Og vit mítt er fult av tonkum
á ferð út á víðan veg
at finna á miðleysu náttargongd
tann vísdóm, ið uggar meg

Men ongan vísdóm eg finni
ið sigur tey sonnu orð
Sum bløðandi fuglar falla tey
aftur at hvítari for
Tó eg veit at dýrgripir finnast
og fjalast við gráan eim
tá gentur og dreingir spenna
sum folar í dans og gleim

Tá barmur mín spentur av undran
av eydnu, av tungari trá
av iva og sorgarløgum
Eisini, eisini tá
:,: veit eg at lívið er gáva
eitt dýpi av dýrari tíð
sum øll skulu valla ígjøgnum
rekast og villast inní :,:

Translated to Danish:

Tekst af Jens Pauli Heinesen
Oversat af Elin Brimheim Heinesen
Musik af Elin Brimheim Heinesen

Der er mange mennesker, der mener
at livet er endeløs nød
en afgrund af triste dage
og børn, der tigger om brød
Måske er livet en sorgfuld sang
måske er livet godt
måske kan jeg en solskinsdag
fornemme den mørke nat

I nat er luften så ren og klar
dybblå og isnende kold
hvid og tyst hviler jorden
og nordlyset folder sit skjold
mit sind er opfyldt af tanker
på rejse langt ud i det blå
i nat uden mål for at finde
og lindrende visdom nå

Men der er ingen visdom at finde
der siger de sande ord
som blødende fugle falder de
ned på den snehvide jord
Dog ved jeg der findes skatte
gemt inde i askens røg
når piger og drenge danser
så kåde på livets vej

Da fyldes mit hjerte af undren
af længsel og melankoli
af tvivl og af lykke og attrå
:: Også i det øjeblik
ved jeg, at vi fik foræret
et dyb af dyrebar tid
et liv vi skal vandre igennem
drive, forvildes ind i ::

Translated to English:

Lyrics by Jens Pauli Heinesen
Translated by Elin Brimheim Heinesen
Music by Elin Brimheim Heinesen

Many people claim
that life is endless misery
an abyss of grey days
and children begging for bread
maybe life is a sad song
maybe life is good
and maybe on a shiny day
I have a sense of dark night

Tonight the sky is pure and clear
deep blue and icy cold
the earth is resting in white silence
and the northern lights hang their blankets out
My mind is full of thoughts
wandering out in the blue
trying to find in aimless aspiration
the wisdom that can bring me comfort

But there is no wisdom to be found
that tells the true words
they fall down just like bleeding birds
back down on the white ground
But then again I know that gems exist
hidden in grey glowing ashes
when girls and boys play around
like foals in dance and cheerfulness

In that moment my chest is tense with wonder
happiness and heavy longing
doubt and mournful tunes
:: But also, also in that moment
I know that life is a gift
an abyss of precious time
for everyone to wander through
to drift and get lost in ::

Der Liedtext in deutscher Übersetzung:

Tekst: Jens Pauli Heinesen
Übersetzung: Arne List
Musik: Elin Brimheim Heinesen

So viele Menschen betrachten
das Leben als endlose Not
eine Tiefe grauer Tage
und Kinder betteln um Brot
Vielleicht ist das Leben traurig
vielleicht ist das Leben gut
und vielleicht an einem strahlenden Tag
fühle ich die dunkelste Nacht

In der Nacht ist die Luft so rein und klar
tiefblau und eisklirrend kalt
die Erde schläft in weißem Gewand
das Nordlicht errichtet sein Zelt
Mein Kopf ist voller Gedanken
hinaus in die weite Welt
zu finden auf ziellosem Wege dich
du Weisheit, du schließlicher Trost

Keine der Weisheiten kann mir
die Wahrheit erklären
Wie blutende Vögel fallen sie
zurück auf den schneeweißen Grund
Doch ich weiß die Schätze sind da
verborgen von aschgrauem Staub
wenn Mädchen und Jungen traben
wie Fohlen in Tanz und Spaß.

Meine Brust spannt sich mit Wundern
von Glück und von Begehren
von Zweifeln und schmerzenden Wunden
Aber auch, aber auch dann
:: Weiß ich das Leben zu schätzen
als Tiefe der kostbaren Zeit
die wir alle durchwandern
getrieben und in ihr verirrt ::

13 Great Attraction in Scandinavia according to Lonely Planet

13 Great Attraction in Scandinavia according to Lonely Planet

13. Vestmanna Cliffs, Faroe Islands
Vestmanna is a village in Northern Streymoy, Faroe Islands. The cliffs west of Vestmanna, are very popular for excursions by boat. These are awe inspiring as the boat weaves around stacks, through arches and into caves; arctic and great skuas and gannets can be seen as well as puffins, common and black guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and arctic terns galore.

12. Thermal Springs & Saunas, Iceland
Public heated swimming pools and attendant hot pots are commonplace throughout in Iceland. The Blue Lagoon near Reykjavík, with its vivid, translucent blue, 100°F/40°C waters (cooled from their original temperature after being being pumped from a mile underground and powering an electrical plant) is a popular destination.

11. Ice Hotel, Sweden
A hotel constructed entirely out of ice. There are many copycats now, but this is the original. For obvious reasons, the 'ice' part of the hotel exists only between November and May, and a stay will cost you upwards of €300/night. They also offer ordinary rooms in the summer.

10. Skagen, Denmark
Skagen is the northernmost town in Denmark. It is a town where the main turnover are the fishing fleet and the connected industries - food industries and different industries supporting the fleet. Second income is tourism. There are 8.900 habitants in the town but in the main tourist season the inhabitants increase up to 50-60,000 persons.

9. New Nordic Food
When Noma topped S.Pellegrino's 2010 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' list, Copenhagen's culinary prowess was confirmed. Other countries have followed Denmark's lead, and exciting new restaurants now stock all the region's capitals, with more popping up like chanterelle mushrooms.

8. Island Cycling
A lazy bike ride around the perimeters of Gotland, the holiday-friendly Baltic Sea island, is one of the most rewarding ways to spend your time in Sweden: the mostly flat, paved Gotlandsleden cycle path circles the island, passing fields of poppies, shady woodlands, historic churches and ancient rune stones at regular intervals.

7. Old Town, Tallinn
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, lies on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland. At the historical and medieval heart of the city is the hill of Toompea, covered in cobbled streets and filled with medieval houses and alleyways. The lower town spreads out from the foot of the hill, still protected by the remnants of a city wall.

6. Svalbard, Norway
Svalbard is the northernmost tip of Europe and, a few military bases aside, its settlements are the northernmost permanently inhabited spots on the planet. Located between the 76° and 81° parallels, they are far more northerly than any part of Alaska.

5. Lofoten Islands, Norway
Lofoten is a group of islands in the northern part of Norway. With its postcard looking small fishing villages nestled in fjords, dotting a very rugged coast with abrupt peaks rising directly from the ocean, the archipelago is often described as one of the most scenic parts of Norway.

4. The Hermitage, St Petersburg
The State Hermitage is a museum of art and culture in Saint Petersburg, Russia. One of the largest and oldest museums in the world, it was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and has been open to the public since 1852. Its collections, of which only a small part is on permanent display, comprise over three million items, including the largest collection of paintings in the world.

3. Aurora Borealis, Lapland & Iceland
The Northern Lights look somewhat similar to a sunset in the sky at night, but appear occasionally in arcs or spirals usually following the earth's magnetic field. They fairly often look like moving curtains of light, high in the sky. They are most often light green in color but often have a hint of pink.

2. Fjords, Norway
Norway's famous fjords are found throughout the country and not limited to a particular region or location. In most parts of Norway fjords are the dominant landscape features, traditional districts are often identified by proximity to a major fjord and often have the same name.

1. National Park Hiking
Scandinavia's unspoilt wilderness areas are the finest in Europe. If you like dark pine woods populated by foxes and bears, head for northeastern Finland's Karhunkierros trail. Norway's Jotunheimen National Park encompasses hundreds of lofty mountain peaks and crystal-blue lakes. Lying inside the Arctic Circle, Abisko National Park in Sweden begins the epic 440km Kungsleden hiking trail.



Guide to driving in the Faroe Islands:

Guide to driving in the Faroe Islands:

Exploring the Faroe Islands’ beautiful landscapes by car, campervan or motorcycle is a popular way to get around. Most islands are connected by an excellent infrastructure of roads, bridges and subsea tunnels, making it effortless to travel by car.

Driving is on the right and most road signs follow inter-national standards. The use of seat belts is required. The speed limit is 50 km in the towns and villages and 80 km on the main roads. For cars with trailers, the speed limit is 50 kph and for caravans the speed limit is 70 kph. The consequences for speeding are severe. Parking in the towns of Klaksvík, Tórshavn, Runavík and the Airport is restricted.

Parking discs must be displayed in the lower right hand corner of the front windscreen showing the time you parked your car. These display discs are available at no charge from banks and the tourist offices. There is a fine of DKK 200 for parking violations.

Head-lights must be on when driving and seat belts fastened.

As you drive along, please be aware that the sheep may be startled and leap out in front of you. If you happen to collide with a sheep, immediately contact the police in Tórs-havn at tel 351448 for assistance.

Aarstova - Torshavn, Faroe Islands

David’s Been Here is touring the best flavors and top historic sites of the Faroe Islands’ capital city of Torshavn. In this travel clip, David combines the best of both worlds with a visit to Aarstova. Situated in one of the oldest buildings/houses in Torshavn (dating back to the 1600’s), this unique restaurant specializes in authentic, rustic Faroese cuisine. Using local ingredients and family-style serving, Aarstova plays off the antiquated atmosphere of the house giving its guests a truly memorable dining experience. If you love shellfish, fish and/or lamb (their signature braised lamb leg dish is amazing!), then a visit to this idyllic Torshavn restaurant is a must!

Most Isolated Places on Earth

All of the towns are all alone with incredible sites but are so remote you even need a boat to get to some. They are worth the travel!

10. Huacachina
Located in southwestern Peru this small village is built around an oasis and is surrounded by sand dunes. The town has hotels, shops and a library. The 96 people who reside here make a living by hosting tourists and they all live around a lagoon in the center of the village, which is said to have curative properties. It is about 185 miles south of Peru and is actually featured on Peru’s official currency. Imagine wandering around lost in the desert and stumbling upon this picturesque town. At first you would think it was a mirage.

9. Undredal
Up until 1988 you could only access this small village by boat. Since then a road connection has been made and it has become a very popular tourist destination. The village is most famous for its church and its goat cheese. The Undredal Stave Church was built in around 1147 and is one of the smallest stave churches around with only 40 pews. Goat cheese is very important to the town's 100 or so inhabitants, they produce 10 to 12 short tons of brown goat cheese annually using the town's 500 goats.

8. Palmerston Island
62 people from the same bloodline occupy this ridiculously remote island which is found 2,000 miles northeast of New Zealand and 2,850 miles southwest of Hawaii. It is part of an atoll of more than a dozen coral islets and is the only one of these islets that is permanently inhabited. If you are looking for isolation this is the place to go, but be prepared because isolation is about all you will find. What you won’t find are hotels, cars, restaurants, an airport, a gas station, a grocery store or a hospital. It is extremely hard to get to as you can only take a boat and the approach is very dangerous and has only been mastered by the residents of the island.

7. Pitcairn Island
Of its surrounding group of islands, Pitcairn Island is the only one that is inhabited. The fifty or so people are descendents of the mutineers from the HMS Bounty in 1789. The tale of the mutiny has become famous thanks to several books and movies made about the event. The island does not have an airstrip, meaning you have to take a shipping boat out of New Zealand to get there, which typically takes around 10 days.

6. Gasadalur
As of 2012 this town’s population was a scant 18 people. The population has been steadily reduced over the years, and quite frankly it is hard to believe that anyone still lives there as the route to reach other villages forces you to go over a 400 meter high mountain. It is located on the west side of the Faroe Islands and it would be hard to beat the majestic view you get from the town. A tunnel was blasted through the rock in 2004, making it possible to get to the village by car.

5. Strange House
You can find this bizarrely isolated house on the Skeleton Coast of South Africa. It appears that whoever lives here has a long commute to make to get anything done or to even see other human beings.

4. Pura Luhur Batukaru
This temple is one of the most important temples on the island of Bali. It is said to be one of the nine directional temples that protects Bali from evil spirits. Its remote location on the slopes of a volcano make it hard to access and not a lot of tourists journey to this location. If you are feeling adventurous it is a very peaceful area to spend some of your time.

3. Shackleton’s Hut
Ernest Shackleton built this hut while on expedition in Antarctica in the early 1900’s. His entire party spent the brutal winter of 1908 in the hut, which has been named a Historic ite. Before leaving, Shackleton’s crew left supplies for any other explorers who happened upon the remote site. It sits on Cape Royds, which is a dark rock cape on the western extremity of Ross Island. The hut was restored to the condition that Shackleton and his crew had left it in in 2008.

2. Kerguelen Islands
These islands are also known as the Desolation Islands because of their distance from civilization. The only way to reach these extremely remote islands is to take a six day boat ride from a small island off the coast of Madagascar. It is home to a satellite and a French missile defense system but is primarily used as a scientific center.

1. Alert
Living in the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world has to be tough. Its population is shown as 0 to 5 and this is because there is a rotation of military and scientific personnel that constantly inhabit Alert. It is home to a military signals intelligence radio receiving facility and a weather station as well as an atmosphere monitoring lab and an airport. It is only 508 miles from the North Pole and the nearest town is a small fishing village that is 1,300 miles away. The Olympic Torch passed through Alert in 2009 on its way to Vancouver for the Winter Olympics.
