The Faroe Islands, sandwiched between Nordic neighbours Iceland and Norway, offer vast, untamed and spectacular landscapes that are immediately impressive and undeniably compelling. With Iceland and Norway as its neighbours, the stark Nordic landscape lends itself to the nature of the Faroe Islands, with vast expanses of untamed scenery that are immediately remarkable. Its daunting sea cliffs, along with the tremendous whitewashed waves that pummel the coastline, and the verdant green valleys sandwiched by steep mountains, are just a few of the draws of the islands. Days are taken slowly to enjoy the serene surroundings, often subject to the unpredictable weather. We discover here a culture that is distinctive to the Faroese—world class cuisine made by gifted chefs, wool and fabric masterpieces made by artisans, and a jazzy and heavy-metal dominated folk music that transcends time.
These are a selection of lodges that we feel combine well for this journey. However we do also have a range of options to consider in each region, and can tailor them to you preference.
