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!

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.

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.

The Iconic Photography Spots of The Faroe Islands

Today on the vlog we went to some Iconic Landscape photography spots in The Faroe Islands.
Find my Faroe Islands photography on IG at
There are lots of iconic photo spots on The Faroe Islands. In fact, within a 10 minute drive of the airport, you can find about 4 shots that are absolute classics. Some of the best photography locations anywhere in the world are all within a short trip. And sure, this photo trip to the Faroes is meant to be about location scouting and finding new locations. But, we can't help but stop and photograph the iconic photo spots.
On today's photography vlog, I took the participants of my workshop to some of the most iconic spots to sort of get them out of the way. If you capture the classic images right away, you're not so worried about being sure you get those images later on It takes a lot of weight off your shoulder.
So, as this Faroe Islands photography vlog series continues, look for fewer of these iconic photo locations, and more hidden gems we find along the way.

The Faroe Islands: The Adventure Begins

The Faroe Islands are becoming a hot travel and photography destination. I'm going to 10 days to see what it's all about.
My Faroe Islands photography on Instagram:
I'm in the Faroe Islands for 10 days of photography. I'm leading a photography workshop which is actually my first ever photo location scouting VIP trip. I'm excited about this brand of workshop as I think it has a lot to offer new photographers. And, for me, it's fun to get to visit a location and treat it as if it were an assignment but not really have anyone (aside from the participants) to answer to. And, this location is amazing.
It wasn't easy getting to The Faroe Islands, though. I had a flight cancelled for weather. And then when I finally did get on a flight the next day, I had maybe my wildest landing on a flight ever. Shout out to the Faroese pilot who made that landing in crazy weather.
Today's vlog, we're out finding photography locations on the Faroe Islands. My photography workshop starts in 2 days. So, we're sort of prepping and exploring, and finding some cool places to take people to.
Overall, I think this Faroe Islands photography vlog series is going to be a blast!

Tourism in the Faroe Islands and Greenland

Tourism in the Faroe Islands and Greenland Denmark - Best Tourist Attractions

The Faroe Islands, sometimes called the Faeroe Islands, is an archipelago between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic, about halfway between Norway and Iceland, 320 kilometres (200 miles) north-northwest of Scotland. The islands are an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. Their area is about 1,400 square kilometres (541 square miles) with a population of 50,322 in October 2017.

The Faroes' terrain is rugged, and the islands have a subpolar oceanic climate (Cfc): windy, wet, cloudy, and cool. Despite this island group's northerly latitude, temperatures average above freezing throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream.

Between 1035 and 1814, the Faroes were part of the Hereditary Kingdom of Norway. In 1814, the Treaty of Kiel granted Denmark control over the islands, along with two other Norwegian island possessions: Greenland and Iceland. The Faroe Islands have been a self-governing country within the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948. The Faroese have control of most domestic matters. Areas that remain the responsibility of Denmark include military defence, policing and the justice department, currency, and foreign affairs. However, as they are not part of the same customs area as Denmark, the Faroe Islands have an independent trade policy and can establish trade agreements with other states. The islands also have representation in the Nordic Council as members of the Danish delegation. The Faroe Islands also have their own national teams competing in certain sports.

Greenland

Greenland is an autonomous constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and Denmark, the colonial powers, as well as the nearby island of Iceland) for more than a millennium. The majority of its residents are Inuit, whose ancestors began migrating from the Canadian mainland in the 13th century, gradually settling across the island.

Greenland is the world's largest island. Australia and Antarctica, although larger, are generally considered to be continental landmasses rather than islands. Three-quarters of Greenland is covered by the only permanent ice sheet outside Antarctica. With a population of about 56,480 (2013), it is the least densely populated territory in the world. About a third of the population live in Nuuk, the capital and largest city. The Arctic Umiaq Line ferry acts as a lifeline for western Greenland, connecting the various cities and settlements.

Greenland has been inhabited off and on for at least the last 4,500 years by Arctic peoples whose forebears migrated there from what is now Canada. Norsemen settled the uninhabited southern part of Greenland beginning in the 10th century, having previously settled Iceland to escape persecution from the King of Norway and his central government. These Norsemen would later set sail from Greenland and Iceland, with Leif Erikson becoming the first known European to reach North America nearly 500 years before Columbus reached the Caribbean islands. Inuit peoples arrived in the 13th century. Though under continuous influence of Norway and Norwegians, Greenland was not formally under the Norwegian crown until 1262. The Norse colonies disappeared in the late 15th century when Norway was hit by the Black Death and entered a severe decline. Soon after their demise, beginning in 1499, the Portuguese briefly explored and claimed the island, naming it Terra do Lavrador (later applied to Labrador in Canada).

In the early 18th century, Scandinavian explorers reached Greenland again. To strengthen trading and power, Denmark-Norway affirmed sovereignty over the island. Because of Norway's weak status, it lost sovereignty over Greenland in 1814 when the union was dissolved. Greenland became a Danish colony in 1814, and was made a part of the Danish Realm in 1953 under the Constitution of Denmark.

In 1973, Greenland joined the European Economic Community with Denmark. However, in a referendum in 1982, a majority of the population voted for Greenland to withdraw from the EEC, which was effected in 1985. Greenland contains the world's largest and most northernly national park, Northeast Greenland National Park (Kalaallit Nunaanni nuna eqqissisimatitaq). Established in 1974 and expanded to its present size in 1988, it protects 972,001 square kilometres (375,292 sq mi) of the interior and northeastern coast of Greenland and is bigger than all but twenty-nine countries in the world. Greenland is divided into five municipalities – Sermersooq, Kujalleq, Qeqertalik, Qeqqata, and Avannaata.

Denmark (Listeni/ˈdɛnmɑːrk/; Danish: Danmark, pronounced [ˈd̥ɛnmɑɡ̊] ( listen)), officially the Kingdom of Denmark (Danish: Kongeriget Danmark, [ˈkɔŋəʁiːəð ˈd̥ɛnmɑɡ̊] ( listen)), is a sovereign state in Northern Europe, located south-west of Sweden, south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom has two autonomous constituent countries in the north Atlantic Ocean, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. At 43,094 square kilometres (16,638.69 sq mi),[10] and a population of around 5.6 million inhabitants, Denmark consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and the Danish archipelago of 407 islands,[11] of which around 70 are inhabited, are characterised by flat, arable land and sandy coasts with little elevation and a temperate climate. The national language, Danish, is closely related to Swedish and Norwegian.
The Kingdom of Denmark is a unitary constitutional monarchy with Margrethe II as queen regnant, organised in a parliamentary democracy. Ending absolute monarchy introduced in 1660, the Constitution of Denmark was signed on 5 June 1849, only to be rewritten four times; the latest revision in 1953. The unicameral parliament, the Folketing, resides in the capital of Copenhagen, together with judicial, executive, and legislative powers. Denmark[b] exercises hegemonic influence in the Danish Realm, devolving political powers to handle internal affairs to the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Denmark became a member of the European Union in 1973, maintaining four opt-outs from European Union policies, as outlined in the 1992 Edinburgh Agreement. Both the Faroe Islands and Greenland remain outside the Union.
Home of the Vikings, the unified kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 8th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. The establishment of the personal Kalmar Union under Danish rule in 1397 ended with Swedish secession in 1523; one year later, Denmark entered union with Norway until its dissolution in 1814. Several cessions of Danish territory that had begun in the 17th century caused a surge of nationalist movements that gained momentum in the 1830s and concluded with a defeat in the 1864 Second Schleswig War. A new European outlook was sought after the war, resulting in adjustment and cooperation.
Denmark remained neutral during World War I and the German invasion in April 1940 saw brief military skirmishes while the Danish resistance movement was active from 1943 until the German surrender in May 1945. Denmark abandoned its traditional neutrality by joining NATO in 1949. The post-war period generated an increase of wealth and brought closer European integration. Denmark has been an active participant in international peacekeeping missions. It took part in the UN peacekeeping mission in the Balkans in the 1990s. More recently, it has participated in military engagements in the Middle East at the turn of the 21st century.[12]
An industrialized exporter of agricultural produce in the second half of the 19th century, Denmark introduced social and labour-market reforms in the early decades of the 20th century, making the basis for the present welfare state with a highly developed mixed market economy. The Danish krone has been pegged to the euro since 1 January 1999. Denmark has close cultural, economic, and historical ties with its neighbours, resulting in the Danish-Swedish Øresund Bridge and the planned Danish-German Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link.
Denmark is frequently ranked as the happiest country in the world in cross-national studies of happiness.[13][14][15][16][17] Denmark ranks as having the world's highest social mobility,[18] a high level of income equality,[19] and has one of the world's highest per capita income. For 2013, Denmark is listed 15th on the Human Development Index[20] and 9th on the inequality-adjusted HDI. Denmark ranks highly positive on the Corruption Perceptions Index and the Legatum Prosperity Index, and as a full democracy on the Democracy Index.[21][22][23] Denmark is among the founding members of the NATO, Nordic Council, OECD, OSCE, and the United Nations. There are three Danish heritage sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in Northern Europe. Source:

Landscape Photography Location Scouting in The Faroe Islands

Today on the photography vlog, we're location scouting for landscape photography in The Faroe Islands.
Find my Faroe Islands Photography on Instagram at
A lot of landscape photography comes down to location scouting. It's easy to take the picture. But, what lots of people don't realize is that finding that location alone takes a lot of time and effort. And, today we went to full effort in The Faroe Islands.
It should also be noted that today's landscape photography is so different than it was years ago thanks to social media and the internet. Now, we can rely on others to help find places. However, in new destination like The Faroe Islands, there's still so much time and planning that goes into landscape photography location scouting.
So, what are some of the cool photo spots on the Faroe Islands? Well, stay tuned to this series for more of the videos. The Faroe Islands photography playlist is just getting started as I still have 8 vlogs from here. Stay tuned.

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.

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.
