Lying mid-way between Iceland and Scotland, the Faroe Islands are one of the more remarkable destinations on earth.
Impossibly beautiful, with the most dramatic seascapes and coastlines, the islands harbour an ancient culture. From music, dance and of course, the legendary Sagas, one is never far from a vibrant history that stretches unbroken from the time of the Vikings to today.
Travelling through the islands is simple, and there are plenty of cosy hotels and guesthouses to keep you warm and dry at night, and terrific restaurants serving the freshest sea food you have ever tasted!
You can fly from Iceland through Faroe to Denmark and the United Kingdom, so next time you are planning to cross the Atlantic, why not travel on the Viking Route, and enjoy the Faroese hospitality en route?
