  • Have an unforgettable adventure in the Faroe Islands

    2011-09-02

    Located between the UK and Iceland, the Faroe Islands are an ideal location for an adventurous travel trip. This group of 18 small land masses has the isolation factor for great outdoor activities, as well as a creeping modernity that provides tourists with an array of amenities.

    Birdwatchers can delight in a tour throughout the Vestmanna Bird Cliffs, which is home to a large and diverse population of fowl. According to Lonely Planet, visitors may catch glimpses of species such as razorbills, fulmars or puffins, all of which reside among the sea stacks and massive cliffs.

    The rich history of the Faroe Islands may be best displayed at the Foroya Fornminnissavn, or Historical Museum. A highlight at the Hoyvik location could be the giant treasure room, which has carvings of religious figures dating back to the 15th century.

    According to the island's tourism website, many locals and tourists alike indulge in the activities that revolve around the island's beautiful oceans. Scuba divers can venture into some underwater caverns, and those who enjoy fishing can take a boat tour and wrangle flounders or even sharks.
