An archipelago of 18 islands set midway between the Norwegian Fjords, Scottish Highlands and Iceland, the Faroe Islands boast a landscape of surreal mountains and cliffs, countless waterfalls, grass-roofed houses and dramatic oceans—and countless proud puffins, shaggy sheep and diminutive Faroese ponies. Technically part of the Kingdom of Denmark, the Faroes are an autonomous country and have a culture (and language, and currency) all their own. These cultural offerings are front and center on the global stage at the moment, but swarms of tourists haven’t yet descended.

3 Days: Exploring the Faroe Islands
The Faroes are home to just about 50,000 people, but countless landscapes, one more breathtaking than the next. Here is just one example of an itinerary that our destination experts can create for you.
Day 1: Understanding the Faroes
You will start to understand the power of the landscape on your drive from the airport to Tórshavn, home to your hotel. After checking in, head into town to stroll the tiny capital and see Tinganes, site of the original Viking Parliament. Have a snack at the Paname Café then do some shopping for wool sweaters, scarves, mittens and blankets. Stop into Steinprent and finish the day with dinner at Barbara.
Day 2: Exploring by Land & Sea
While based at an exquisite, designer hotel explore this scenic region with its palm-fringed beaches, rock temples and incredible bird life. Activities include kayaking excursions, yoga classes and a guided visit to a rare white tea plantation. End your day with a meal at the most celebrated restaurant in the Faroe Islands, Koks.
Day 3: Explore by Air
This morning you’ll take a helicopter ride to the island of Mykines. On your way back to the airport, head directly to Gásadalur, an oft-photographed town that is famous for its picturesque waterfall.
