The Faroe Islands is an amazing destination. Traditions, fantastic landscapes and scenery, stories, customs, events and experiences are found all year round, in this isolated, unique island group. Explore from your base in Torshavn- your tour arrangements include return flights, accommodation and airport transfers.

Day 1 Friday Copenhagen - Torshavn
Make your own way to Copenhagen* airport for your flight to the Faroe Islands. On arrival at Vágar Airport,  transfer to your accommodation in Tórshavn. 3 nights in Torshavn.

Day 2  Saturday Tórshavn: Day at Leisure
Day at leisure - explore the old part of Tórshavn, Tinganes & Reyn, with narrow alleys, and charming houses with grass roofs, then relax one of the many cafes. In the afternoon, perhaps visit Østrom, down by the end of the harbour, where you can see and buy contemporary Faroese art and fine craft. Back on the main street, have a closer look at the exquisite Faroese designed woollen wares and the latest fashions, at some of the great boutiques including "Sirri"  and "Guðrun and Guðrun".  Wander past the cosy old bookstore and tourist office, and visit the art museum close to the park, where the permanent collection has a wide variety of Faroese art, showing how nature and landscape have been the dominant motifs throughout Faroese art history. You can also see the Nordic House, a Scandinavian culture centre, or the Art Museum and Gallery, with a wide range of more contemporary Faroese art.  

Day 3 Sunday Tórshavn: Saga island of Sandoy and Kirkjubøur (Summer) or Guided Sightseeing (Winter)
Today if you are travelling in summer (June to August) enjoy a trip to Sandoy Island, one of the most unspoiled islands where you can still experience the traditional Faroese lifestyle. Your driver/guide will take you from Tórshavn over the mountain, to the ferry harbour at Gamlarætt, where you board the ferry to Sandoy. Once on board, there are wonderful views of the islands of Hestur and Koltur. Your guide will entertain you with sagas from the island, and other interesting facts about Faroese life, as well as some captivating stories, and you will visit the church, enjoy some fantastic scenic views, and explore small villages. Then return to Torshan and continue on to the cultural centre of Kirkjubour. 

In winter, from September to May, today enjoy a guided sightseeing tour with your local driver/guide.  Seeing the Faroe Islands in winter's austere light and colour is a truly astonishing experience. The exact driving itinerary is dependant on wind and weather, so just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenic views, while talking with your driver who will entertain you with information about the Faroe Islands and other good stories.
