Faroe Islands 7 Days / 6 Nights

ITINERARY

Tour Overview

“The tour provides an in-depth introduction to an island archipelago in the North-Atlantic which thus far has remained unknown to many. The islands’ landscapes are unusual and shaped by the roughness of the ocean surrounding them. The region is remote, yet the people of the Faroes are warm and hospitable.
You will get to know its walkable, small capital Torshavn and experience several islands on guided excursions. And you view the impressive cliffs and the wild bird population from the water. A tour includes breakfast in the centrally located hotel and one dinner highlights the Faroe cuisine. ”
