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!

Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of Faroe Islands
Thanks for watching.........
The Faroe Islands is an archipelago and autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, 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. 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. 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. 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.
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.
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.

Norway (/ˈnɔːrweɪ/ (About this sound listen) NAWR-way; Norwegian: About this sound Norge (Bokmål) or About this sound Noreg (Nynorsk)), officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign state and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.[note 1] The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the Kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Until 1814, the kingdom included the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. It also included Bohuslän until 1658, Jämtland and Härjedalen until 1645, Shetland and Orkney until 1468, and the Hebrides and Isle of Man until 1266.
Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of 5,258,317 (as of January 2017). The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long). Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea.
King Harald V of the Dano-German House of Glücksburg is the current King of Norway. Erna Solberg became Prime Minister in 2013, replacing Jens Stoltenberg. A constitutional monarchy, Norway divides state power between the Parliament, the Cabinet and the Supreme Court, as determined by the 1814 Constitution. The kingdom is established as a merger of several petty kingdoms. By the traditional count from the year 872, the kingdom has existed continuously for 1,144 years, and the list of Norwegian monarchs includes over sixty kings and earls.
Norway has both administrative and political subdivisions on two levels: counties and municipalities. The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament and the Finnmark Act. Norway maintains close ties with the European Union and the United States. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the Council of Europe, the Antarctic Treaty, and the Nordic Council; a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO, and the OECD; and is also a part of the Schengen Area.
The country maintains a combination of market economy and a Nordic welfare model with universal health care and a comprehensive social security system. Norway has extensive reserves of petroleum, natural gas, minerals, lumber, seafood, fresh water, and hydropower. The petroleum industry accounts for around a quarter of the country's gross domestic product (GDP). On a per-capita basis, Norway is the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas outside the Middle East.
The country has the fourth-highest per capita income in the world on the World Bank and IMF lists. On the CIA's GDP (PPP) per capita list (2015 estimate) which includes territories and some regions, Norway ranks as number eleven. It has the world's largest sovereign wealth fund, with a value of 960 billion USD. Since 2009, Norway has the highest Human Development Index ranking in the world, a position also held previously between 2001 and 2006. It also has the highest inequality-adjusted ranking. Norway ranks first on the World Happiness Report, the OECD Better Life Index, the Index of Public Integrity, and the Democracy Index.

🇮🇸 18 Awe-Inspiring Things To Do in ICELAND 🇮🇸 | Travel Better in Iceland!
Iceland Travel Guide: Iceland is easily the most *spectacular* place we've travelled to so far. Here's our Top 18 Things you CANNOT miss, to help you get as much out of your trip to Iceland as possible 🇮🇸

I’m Abi and I’m here with the Holiday Extras Travel Guides, in Iceland. And in no particular order, here are our top things to do…
First is the Blue Lagoon. This geothermally-heated pool has become Iceland’s must-do. Its water reaches up to 38 degrees and its algae, minerals and silica is said to condition and rejuvenate the skin.
Gullfoss is an enormous and breath-taking waterfall on the Hvita river.
You can see regular geothermal eruptions at Geysir, although it’s actually its smaller neighbour, Strokkur, that goes off every 10 minutes or so.
Thingvellir National Park is where you can see the join between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.
Reykjavik is Iceland’s capital city and the embodiment of the Icelandic culture of self-sufficiency and a keen interest in the arts. For 900 Krona you can take the lift to the top of Hallgrimskirkja for unparalleled views over the city.
Down by the harbour the Saga Museum is the place to learn all about Iceland’s Viking history. You can even try some authentic armour or just go for the faux fur and sword option like me.
About 15 minutes outside of Reykjavik is the Laxnes Horse Farm. Fun fact: Icelandic horses have two gaits, which is two more than any other breed.
Hiring a car is absolutely the best way to experience Iceland. The Ring Road runs around the entire country and if you want to do the whole thing, we’d give it at least two weeks.
Seljalandsfoss is just off the Ring Road, about 90 minutes South-East of Reykjavik. Part of this one’s charm is you can walk all the way around behind it but you’ll need waterproofs!
About 15 minutes further along is the giant waterfall, Skogafoss. We’re at the top of Skogafoss. It’s absolutely beautiful but nothing like what I expected. There are stairs that you can climb, all the way to the top, and believe me, it takes a while to take your time. But the real gem is actually back here. So you climb over a fence, it’s quite muddy, quite uneven terrain as well, but it’s beautiful. You can see all the way down, where the river runs, and it’s genuinely the most beautiful Icelandic scenery I’ve seen so far.
Seljavallalaug is a secret geothermal pool. To get to it, you drive to the end of road 242, park your car and then hike the rest of the way through a breath-taking valley. It’s not the easiest of routes but it is worth it.
Up next, Reynisfjara beach. Well, just take a look for yourself - it’s stunning.
And now it’s the canyon with the impossible name. The canyon is totally off the tourist track. It’s over 100 metres deep and 2km long.
Next up is one of the most beautiful places we visited in Iceland. Jokulsarlon translates as ‘glacier river lagoon’ and basically it’s just where the sea over there, meets the glacier and it breaks off into all of these chunks. Personally, I think it’s the best place for a bit of photography.
Glacier hiking was easily my favourite Iceland experience. The sheer scale of this landscape leaves you in awe. And, the climbing itself wasn’t as easy as it looks.
Only around in winter, the ice caves at vatnajokull glacier have to be seen to be believed. We did a tour with the guys from iceguide.is. They provided all the extra kit we needed and are really friendly and true experts when it comes to exploring the caves.
Iceland is one of the best countries for seeing the Northern Lights. When I eventually saw them, the colours and sheer vibrancy were something I’ll never forget.
So that was our top things to do. Hopefully we’ve given you some inspiration for your own adventures. Keep watching for more Iceland content and subscribe for a new video every week.
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.
Faroe Islands: An extraordinary Road Trip
There are those who think that there is no unexplored places on Earth any more. Expecially in Europe. They have never been on Faroe Islands. This is a short movie of our extraordinary road trip around unspoiled, unexplored and unbelievable Faroe Islands...

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!

Famous places of Denmark.
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.

Denmark (/ˈdɛnmɑːrk/ (About this sound listen); Danish: Danmark [ˈdænmɑɡ] (About this sound listen)), officially the Kingdom of Denmark,[N 8] is a Scandinavian country in Europe and a sovereign state. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway,[N 9] and bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom of Denmark also comprises two autonomous constituent countries in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Denmark itself has a total area of 42,924 square kilometres (16,573 sq mi),; total area including Greenland and the Faroe Islands is 2,210,579 square kilometres (853,509 sq mi), and a population of 5.75 million. European Denmark consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and an archipelago of 443 named islands, with the largest being Zealand, Funen and the North Jutlandic Island. The islands are characterised by flat, arable land and sandy coasts, low elevation and a temperate climate.
The unified kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 10th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. Denmark, Sweden and Norway were ruled together under the Kalmar Union, established in 1397 and ending with Swedish secession in 1523. Denmark and Norway remained under the same monarch until outside forces dissolved the union in 1814. The union with Norway made it possible for Denmark to inherit the Faroe Islands, Iceland, and Greenland. Beginning in the 17th century, there were several cessions of territory to Sweden. In the 19th century there was a surge of nationalist movements, which were defeated in the 1864 Second Schleswig War. Denmark remained neutral during World War I. In April 1940, a German invasion saw brief military skirmishes while the Danish resistance movement was active from 1943 until the German surrender in May 1945. An industrialised exporter of agricultural produce in the second half of the 19th century, Denmark introduced social and labour-market reforms in the early 20th century that created the basis for the present welfare state model with a highly developed mixed economy.
The Constitution of Denmark was signed on 5 June 1849, ending the absolute monarchy which had begun in 1660. It establishes a constitutional monarchy organised as a parliamentary democracy. The government and national parliament are seated in Copenhagen, the nation's capital, largest city and main commercial centre. Denmark exercises hegemonic influence in the Danish Realm, devolving powers to handle internal affairs. Home rule was established in the Faroe Islands in 1948; in Greenland home rule was established in 1979 and further autonomy in 2009. Denmark became a member of the European Economic Community (now the EU) in 1973, maintaining certain opt-outs; it retains its own currency, the krone. It is among the founding members of NATO, the Nordic Council, the OECD, OSCE, and the United Nations; it is also part of the Schengen Area.

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 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.
