You need to visit the Faroe Islands at least once in your lifetime because the photo essay below simply does not give the beauty of these islands justice. The breathtaking beauty of this place fused with its Scandinavian charm leaves me frequently thinking about when I will return.
Faroe Islands Photo Essay
I wasn’t sure how to present my “sightseeing” here and realized that the best way would simply be to showcase the beauty of this place via pictures. My advice is simple: just get in the car and drive. Pick a different direction each day and hop in the car. The beauty is you cannot even get lost: follow the roads and eventually you will be back where you started from.
Nevertheless, here are my recommendations of places you should not miss:
- Mulafossur waterfall
- Saksun village (Út á Lónna)
- Fossa waterfall
- Gjogv village
- Kirkjubøur village
- Tjørnuvík village

For US readers, Atlantic Airways is launching once-weekly service from New York this summer. Do consider a trip, perhaps as a stop on the way to or way back from Europe.
I spent about 48 hours on the island over three days and two nights. A few more nights would have been most welcome. Plan on 3-5 days there.
As I look back on all my travel over the years, this trip ranks very high on my list of favorite destinations.
