Holiday Idea

Take advantage of the Faroe Islands' excellent infrastructure and explore the easily-accessible islands from the saddle. Eighteen islands connected by either sub-sea tunnels, bridges or ferries combined with a low volume of traffic makes exploring the rugged landscapes of the islands on bike a pleasure.
