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.

Driving in the Faroes

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.

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.

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“

EITT DÝPI AV DÝRARI TÍÐ
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:

ET DYB AF DYREBAR TID
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:

AN ABYSS OF PRECIOUS TIME
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:

EINE TIEFE KOSTBARER ZEIT
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 ::

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.

Ask a question of it!
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!

LA Tourism Board gets inspired by the Faroe Islands

We love it

- Ernest Wooden Jr. President and CEO at Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, about the Faroe Islands Google Sheepview projet.

The Faroe Islands Google Sheep View project was one of the most successful viral tourism marketing campaigns ever, and it was all done on a tiny budget.

Our clever concept from idea to execution and the whole creativity and innovativeness of it impressed Ernest Wooden Jr. and the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board so much that they included us as an case at their Global Staff Meeting a few weeks ago and this film is of that case presentation.
