Holiday Idea

Gloriously remote, yet easy to reach, this short summer holiday in the Faroe Islands is perfect for first-time visitors seeking a unique city break. Stay in the pretty capital, Torshavn and wander along cobbled streets, admire grass-roofed cottages, and dine at fantastic harbourside restaurants. Relax and enjoy the capital or join guided day trips to discover the fantastic history, rich culture, and spectacular scenery of the islands.
