Top Places to See in the Faroe Islands

???? WATCH: Top Things to See & Do in Plovdiv, Bulgaria
???? DAVID’S BEEN HERE SHIRTS & MERCH:

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!

Amazing View Of Faroe Islands (Travel To Faroe Islands) 4K..

The Faroe or Faeroe Islands /ˈfɛəroʊ/ (Faroese: Føroyar, pronounced [ˈfœɹjaɹ]; Danish: Færøerne, pronounced [ˈfɛɐ̯ˌøˀɐnə]) are a North Atlantic archipelago located 320 kilometres (200 mi) north-northwest of Scotland, and about halfway between Norway and Iceland. It is an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark. The islands have a total area of about 1,400 square kilometres (540 sq mi) with a population of 52,110 as of January 2020.

The terrain is rugged; the climate is subpolar oceanic climate (Cfc)—windy, wet, cloudy, and cool. Temperatures average above freezing throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream. As a result of the moderation and the northerly latitude, summers normally hover around 12 °C (54 °F). Average temperatures are 5 °C (41 °F) in winter.[9] The northerly latitude location also results in perpetual civil twilight during summer nights and very short winter days.

Between 1035 and 1814, the Faroe Islands were part of the Kingdom of Norway, which was in a personal union with Denmark from 1450. In 1814, the Treaty of Kiel transferred Norway to the King of Sweden, on the winning side of the Napoleonic Wars, whereas Denmark retained the Faroe Islands, along with Greenland and Iceland. The Faroe Islands have been a self-governing part of the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948,[10] controlling most areas apart from military defence, policing, justice, currency, and foreign affairs.[11] Because the Faroe Islands are not part of the same customs area as Denmark, the country has an independent trade policy, and can establish trade agreements with other states. In the Nordic Council, they are represented as part of the Danish delegation. In certain sports, the Faroe Islands field their own national teams.


Despite only having one laureate, the Faroe Islands currently have the most Nobel laureates per capita worldwide.



Etymology:
In Faroese, the name appears as Føroyar. Oyar represents the plural of oy, older Faroese for island. Due to sound changes, the modern Faroese word for island is oyggj. The first element, før, may reflect an Old Norse word fær (sheep), although this analysis is sometimes disputed because Faroese now uses the word seyður (from Old Norse sauðr) to mean sheep. Another possibility is that the Irish monks, who settled the island around 625, had already given the islands a name related to the Gaelic word fearrann, meaning land or estate. This name could then have been passed on to the Norwegian settlers, who then added oyar (islands). The name thus translates as either Islands of Sheep or Islands of Fearrann.

In Danish, the name Færøerne contains the same elements, though øerne is the definite plural of ø (island).

In English, it may be seen as redundant to say the Faroe Islands, since the oe comes from an element meaning island. This is seen in the BBC Shipping Forecast, where the waters around the islands are called Faeroes. The name is also sometimes spelled Faeroe.


Geography of Faroe:
The Faroe Islands are an island group consisting of 18 major islands (and a total of 779 islands, islets, and skerries) about 655 kilometres (407 mi) off the coast of Northern Europe, between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, about halfway between Iceland and Norway, the closest neighbours being the Northern Isles and the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Its coordinates are 62°00′N 06°47′W.

Distance from the Faroe Islands to:

Rona, Scotland (uninhabited): 260 kilometres (160 mi)
Shetland (Foula), Scotland: 285 kilometres (177 mi)
Orkney (Westray), Scotland: 300 kilometres (190 mi)
Scotland (mainland): 320 kilometres (200 mi)
Iceland: 450 kilometres (280 mi)
Ireland: 670 kilometres (420 mi)
Norway: 670 kilometres (420 mi)
Denmark: 990 kilometres (620 mi)

The islands cover an area of 1,399 square kilometres (540 sq. mi) and have small lakes and rivers, but no major ones. There are 1,117 kilometres (694 mi) of coastline. The only significant uninhabited island is Lítla Dímun.

The islands are rugged and rocky with some low peaks; the coasts are mostly cliffs. The highest point is Slættaratindur in northern Eysturoy, 882 metres (2,894 ft) above sea level.

The Faroe Islands are made up of an approximately six-kilometers-thick succession of mostly basaltic lava that was part of the great North Atlantic Igneous Province during the Paleogene period. The lavas were erupted during the opening of the North Atlantic ocean, which began about 60 million years ago, and what is today the Faroe Islands was then attached to Greenland. The lavas are underlain by circa 30 km of unidentified ancient continental crust.

10 Places NOT To Travel to in 2021!

It is somewhat ironic that the most beautiful and enjoyable places to travel to are generally the ones that haven't been damaged by tourism, and countries that were once the perfect place to visit are now on our list of Places NOT To Travel in 2021!

1. Dubrovnik, Croatia
After gaining fame for being a filming location for Game of Thrones and also thanks various social influencers, Dubrovnik has become a veritable tourism hotspot making it one of our, tourism notspots. Its overcrowded and no longer has the feel of a hidden paradise and considering that Croatia has so many beautiful seaside towns, why choose this one?

2. Switzerland
Switzerland has always been a popular tourist location, its beautiful, not overcrowded, and has good cheese and amazing chocolate, what more could you want? Well while Switzerland certainly isn't lacking, it is expensive! and cheaper options like Slovenia will give you a lot more! for a lot less!

3. Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon gained popularity as a viable alternative to the crowded Barcelona, but nowadays it too has become a little too touristy. Luckily Lisbon isn't the only jewel in Portugal's crown, Coimbra and Aveiro and both stunning, with the later being known as Portugal's version of Venice!

4. Kanpur, India
Kanpur has been a big tourist favorite for years and still is! but not without consequence. Kanpur relies heavily on industry and Kanpur leather is famous worldwide, but this, in addition to over population and vehicle emissions has caused air pollution problems within the city. so its probably best to avoid Kanpur next year.

5. North Korea
Although beautiful there are some places on this earth that ethically are best not to visit! If you think that the money you spend here will go towards a dictatorship and the possible oppression of millions of people it kinda puts a downer on your vacation plans!

6. Hallstatt, Austria
The snow shines bright on the mountains at night, not a footprint to be seen. In this kingdom of isolation, tourism is the queen. Hallstatt was the inspiration for Arendel in the frozen films and since then it has been flooded with tourists. If you don't like crowds and this was one of your travel options for 2021 its probably best to let it go!

7. Santorini, Greece
Its easy to see why this quaint town has become so popular, its beautiful white and blue houses and tight streets make it something very special, unfortunately, tight streets and thousands of tourists means you'll be queuing just to walk down the street. add the fact that its majority trade is souvenirs and you'll find yourself feeling like you're just queuing up in a rather extravagant gift shop.

8. Faroe Islands
After a large marketing campaign in 2016 the Faroe Islands with its virgen, untouched landscapes has become a very attractive place to visit. but the more people that visit, the less untouched it becomes. The tourism board recently decided to close the island for a weekend for maintenance and will continue to do so in an effort to protect its delicate ecosystem.

9. Phi Phi islands, Thailand
This place is the definition of island paradise, everywhere you look is simply breathtaking. this tourist hotspot has suffered greatly from the influx of tourists over the years, so much so the in 2018 the shut it to tourists so that the islands could recover. even though it may open again in 2021 it would probably be best to give this paradise more time to recover rather than lose it all together.

10. Florida Keys, USA
A popular place with diving enthusiasts thanks to its barrier reef, it is home to a wide variety of species, this beautiful, carefully balanced ecosystem is in danger from invasive species, climate change and pollution. therefore its probably best to give Florida Keys a break from mankind for a while.

#Europe #Davidsbeenhere

About Me:
My name is David Hoffmann and for the last decade I have been traveling around the world in search of unique culture, food and history! Since starting Davidsbeenhere in 2008, I have traveled to 71 countries and over 1,000 destinations, which I welcome you to check out on my YouTube Channel, blog and social medias.

I focus a great deal on food and historic sites, as you probably have seen! I love to experience the different flavors that each destination has to offer, whether it’s casual Street food or gourmet restaurant dining. I’m also passionate about learning the local history and culture.

SANDOY is EPIC! Landscape Photography Faroe Islands | 4K

It's actually an understatement to say Sandoy is epic, but this underappreciated island in Faroes has one of the most fascinating coastlines in the entire Faroe Islands. Here I get to play around with the 70-200 tele lens and my drone. I also visit a nice little house. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed making it!
