      Two centre or one

      Faroe Islands Mar 27, 2016 at 5:16 AM

      My husband and I are planning a trip in July this year for 6 days & I'm wondering if people would recommend a two or one centre for accommodation. I'm not sure of driving distances etc so would be very grateful for peoples suggestions.
      Is it feasible to drive to most places and back in a day from Streymoy?
      Thanks in advance.

      Winter tires

      Faroe Islands Feb 20, 2016 at 3:46 AM

      Hi all

      We'll be going to the FI at the end of march.
      My husband is wondering if there are any specific rules regarding winter tires? Are they mandatory at that time of year? If not, is it best to still have them on the car or not?
      We can't seem to find anything specific on this ...

      Thanks in advance for the help!

    • Looking to meet other travelers in Aug

      Faroe Islands May 23, 2015 at 12:34 AM

      Hi guys,

      I am looking to travel to the Faroe Islands from Aug 18-25. I will be by myself and found a cheap hostel (www.faroeislandshotels.com/kerjalon.htm) but it seems pretty far from the main center. Is anyone else going that might want to meet up or possibly rent an airbnb house together? It'd be fun to get a group of random people together. Anyways, just checking. Thanks!

      Organized day trips

      Faroe Islands Nov 8, 2013 at 5:16 AM

      I am considering a trip from Oslo to Bergen to see Flåm and the beautiful sceneries from the train next summer. While already being in Bergen I am also considering flying to Faroe Islands. Atlantic Airways operates a non-stop line between Bergen and Torshavn Thursdays arriving at 8.15 p.m. and leaving Sundays at 7.35 p.m.

      1. We do not want to rent a car, but we would like to see the most beautiful parts of Faroe Island. Is it possible to join organized tours/daytrips to the islands highlights? Is staying in Torshavn and doing daytrips to recommend?

      2. What are the highlights for beautiful nature and sceneries? My 75 year old mother will travel with me so long hiking is not an option but walks to reach viewpoints etc wearing sneakers (no mountain boots) are ok. Bird watching is not a must, but of course birds are ok if it is part of a beautiful view. I have read other threads as well as the tips here on VT.

      3. Is Three days to short? It is only these non-stop flights mentioned in the text above which is an option for us. Ten days is not an option, so it is three days or skip it.

      Thanks from Lena

      A week in the Faroe Islands

      Faroe Islands Jun 23, 2011 at 5:02 AM

      Hi
      We are spending a week in the Faroe Islands in late August and was wondering if I could have some suggestions on what I must squeeze in, in that time. We are hiring a car so we can travel anywhere. There is so much to see and do I just want to make sure that I include the best bits. We are staying in Kvivik and this will be our base. We are pretty much interested in doing anything from hiking to adventure activites. So far I only have a music shop that I am very interested in going to in Torshvan!
      Many thanks

    • One Day in Torshavn, Sept. 1, 2011

      Tórshavn May 3, 2011 at 4:53 AM

      Hi,
      My friends and I will be arriving into the port of Torshavn for a one day visit. Our ship arrives 7AM and departs 5PM. I know there is alot of beautiful scenery to see and I was hoping someone could give us some guidance.

      I have read about the Bird Cliffs and I know they sponsor a tour from the ship here. Does anyone know if this is a difficult trip for someone using a cane? I just had hip surgery and would love to see the cliffs they mention, but I am afraid if it is too rough I will injure my hip.

      Can you hire a taxi or van to take you on a land tour to see the cliffs and other scenery?

      What other suggestions would you give for this amount of time in Torshavn? I understand all of the islands offer beauty, but any special places you can tell me about?

      Also, unfortunately to some, I love to shop! I look for items that are unique to the place I am visiting, along with T-shirts, post cards and such for the little ones at home. Any suggestions?

      I am hoping to be able to do some walking and wonder if it is easy enough to get around the town from the pier.

      I would appreciate any info that you can give me. I can't wait to arrive.

      Thank-you, Linda

    • Faroe in Winter

      Faroe Islands Sep 25, 2010 at 7:28 PM

      Hi,

      Faroe Islands have been my dream place to visit since forever...I badly wanted to go this past summer but life and work got in the way. Now, I am very torn - should I try and make it this November (combine it with an Iceland tour this winter) or wait and combine it with a Copenhagen-Oslo trip next summer?

      What are the islands like for sightseeing in winter? (weather, public transport availability, any guided tours, amount of daylight etc) I know there are some tours offered in the summer that visit some of the islands, the bird cliffs of Vestmanna and some local hikes/horse riding etc. Will I (travelling solo) be able to do all this in winter as well? I like to spend time outdoors and not all the time inside museums. That said, I do like the rain, misty and cloudy days.

      Thanks!
      -Sue.

    • Hildah, Ornithology.

      Faroe Islands Jan 23, 2010 at 8:45 PM

      Good Day from Western Australia. I was interested if the practice of collecting Sea Bird eggs such as Guillemots still continues and is legal on the Faeroe Islands.
      I am attempting to source a number of these eggs legally. Eggs such as the Guillemot show great colour diversity and would be interesting for display purposes and the Museum collection as we have nothing like them down here.
      Any feedback would be much appreciated.
      I believe the best time of the year to come to the Island to look into the collecting and observe the practice would be May June so I was hoping for info on this to have time to organize a trip details.
      Email addressee's of anyone who could help us would be great.
      Cheer Peter.
