The Faroe Islands- Hidden Gem of the North Atlantic ( 3 days/2 nights )

Far out in the remote North Atlantic are a group of magical islands that few know about, the Faroe Islands. Explore these beautiful islands with their steep coastal cliffs shrouded in mist and mystery, grassy heaths with grazing sheep and quaint little villages where the pace of life is as easy and laid back as the people

But there's so much more to the Faroe Islands than the dramatic rugged scenery, here lives a community with a rich cultural heritage stretching back to the Viking Age. Our itinerary combines all that is best about this hidden gem of the North, namely the exquisite natural beauty, the rich birdlife, the history and the enjoyment of sitting down to dinner with some locals and hearing some good tales spun.
