Holiday Idea

Experience the mystical Viking archipelago of the gloriously-isolated Faroe Islands on this short break where you will dine in the home of a local Faroese family. A haven for bird life, discover the distinct jagged mountain peaks of the northern islands and breathtaking scenery of the Mykines-islet. Wander the streets of the islands' pint-sized capital, Torshavn, where jade turf-roofed houses stand side by side with contemporary architecture.
