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 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.

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 Travel Video

Faroe Islands - the fantastic place you should definitely visit!
The 10 most interesting places below:
1. Drangarnir - the giant Arch in the open ocean. The most epic spot in my opinion.
2. A mount near the Funningur. The most exciting view of the Faroes
3. Mykines Island - the Puffin heaven! To get here you need to book a ferry or a helicopter and you better do it at least a month before the visiting day.
4. Tralanipan - its just mind blowing surrealistic place! Where else you can see the lake flying over the ocean. You just have to see it you own eyes!
5. Gasadulur Waterfall - The best place for a sunset!
6. Fossa Waterfall - the biggest waterfall at Faroe.
7. Saksun - the village with the grass roof tops and the black sand beach
8. Gjogv - the village with the epic dock just between the two rocks
9. Sandoy Island - here you can find the biggest blue postbox and the cutest little lonely house right near the road
10. Helicopter ride for the price of a taxi. Yes it is real! the best way is to take a ride from the Airport to Mykines and back on a ferry or from Torshavn to Klaksvik and back on a bus.

Just go an visit it!

Топ 10 мест фарерских островов!
1. Drangarnir - огромная каменная арка в океане, за которой высится остров Tindhólmur. Цена - 5500₽. Старт от порта г. Sørvágur. Идти 2,5 часа в каждую сторону. Пожалуй, самое эпичное место на островах.
2. Гора рядом с деревушкой Finningur. Отсюда открывается самый захватывающий вид на острова. Находим парковку и далее 15-20 минутный хайк на вершину.
3. Остров Mykines - тупиковый рай! Добраться можно на пароме (1500) или вертолете (...). Паром разбирают очень быстро. Бронировать лучше за месяц. На вертолете можно улететь только в одну сторону (обратно паром). Сюда нужно ехать в любую погоду т.к. в хорошую погоду почти все тупики сидят в море, но когда на море качка, они возвращаются к норкам - прямо у вас под ногами!
4. Tralanipan - сурреалистичное место где озеро «парит» над океаном. Это просто нужно увидеть своими глазами! Цена 2000₽. Идти 40 минут. Легко найти в Гугл мапс.
5. Водопад Gasadulur - идеальное место для заката! Солнце заходит прямо за ним! Легко ищется в Гугл картах
6. Водопад Fossa - самый большой водопад фарерских островов! Стоит ехать только если на днях шли дожди. Без дождей водопад засыпает и превращается в ручеёк.
7. Saksun - деревушка с домиками с травой на крыше и чёрным пляжем. Домики можно смотреть бесплатно, а вот для Прогулки по черному пляжу нужно заплатить.
8. Gjógv - деревушка с эпичным выходом в океан. Который до сих пор активно используется местными. Также можно хайкнуть на гору левее от деревушки. Все бесплатно.
9. Остров Sandoy - на нем расположен самый большой почтовый ящик и самый миленький одинокий домик. Добраться на пароме из Gamlarætt Ferry Port Цена 1500₽ в обе стороны.
10. Вертолетная прогулка по цене обычного такси. Да, на Фарерах такое возможно. Лучший вариант это лететь из аэропорта на о. Мичинес и обратно на пароме. Но если на этот рейс места кончились то можно лететь из Торсхавна в Клаксвик и обратно на автобусе. Бронировать полеты на сайте Atlantic Airways! Напомню Вертолёт нельзя купить в обе стороны!

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!

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.

Visit the Faroe Islands and explore Europe's best kept secret.
The World's most appealing Destination The islands received top marks for its preservation of nature, historic architecture and national pride.

Less is more
The lesson to be learned from the Faroe Islands is quality over quantity. National Geographic named the archipelago the best island destination of 2015, citing its commitment to maintaining its traditions and way of life without standing in the way of progress. The Faroese haven't bowed to the pressure of mass tourism, although it's the islands' second largest industry, and visitors are expected to endure stormy seas and unpredictable weather just as the locals would. Careful maintenance of a traditional lifestyle and consequent dedication to sustainability are things to admire in this cluster of islands in the Atlantic.

Kamil Bartošek (KAZMA)
Most of the people are postponing their plans for life, while it’s slipping through their fingers. When there is less work, when there is more money, when kids grow up, when we pay a mortgage, when we buy all of the rubbish we need or when it's time. But the world is not waiting for anyone and the person you think you are, will die one day. Remember that when your life will be asking you, whether you’ll go for it or not, do it and go at full throttle. Because there is not much to be missed, except for time. I cannot tell you what will happen, but I know for sure that if you do not try, nothing will happen at all. So live and risk everything. Because this is life and there’s nothing more left here for you.
