Vagar-A Faroese Island

Hosted Tour

4 Days/3 Nights

Daily from Copenhagen June 1-August 31 and Mondays and Fridays from Reykjavik June 1-Augsut 31

Midway between Norway and Iceland the Faroe Islands rise out of the Atlantic Ocean like a hardy little flower. The Islands offer thrilling experiences and a rugged environment: Steep cliffs raising from the open sea, narrow straits between the islands, natural harbors surrounded by small villages and a countless number of birds. A nation of 18 small islands of which 17 are inhabited with a total of less than 50,000 people and with more than 3-4 million sea birds, a dream for ornithologists and all nature lovers. The Faroese are a proud people, who, due to its geographical location have been able to preserve their own culture and their own language which has its roots in the Old Norse language from the Viking Age. History is still an integral part of daily life, it is one of the few places in the world where you can still experience the old medieval ballads & chain dance, which people in Europe practiced more than 800 years ago. The scenery of the Faroe Islands is spectacular. You can experience all four seasons in one day, which is rather unique, from brilliant sunshine to misty hill fog, to short rain showers. Average temperature in Summer is 11 degrees.
