Faroe Islands

The Ultimate 3 Day Itinerary for the Faroe Islands for Amazing Views & Cute Sheep!

In case you couldn’t tell from all my posts, I LOVED spending 3 days in the Faroe Islands and I highly recommend visiting! 🙂 The landscapes were amazing to photograph, and it’s the most remote place I’ve visited so far. I would have stayed for a week (or longer), but we didn’t have that much time […]

Visiting Sørvágsvatn: Our Failed Hike to the Hanging Lake

The Faroe Islands have a famous Hanging Lake (also called Sørvágsvatn or Leitisvatn because there’s a disagreement about the name) near the airport, so Matt and I planned to hike to it before our flight back to Copenhagen. We are NOT expert hikers, so the hike to the Hanging Lake didn’t go quite as planned! […]

Visiting Fossá & Saksun: A Pretty Village with Grass Roof Houses & a Black Sand Beach in the Faroe Islands

After spending the night in Gjógv, Matt and I headed out to Saksun in the morning! It’s a pretty village with historic grass roof houses, tons of sheep (of course!), and a black sand beach in the Faroe Islands! The views were amazing, and it was so quiet and peaceful in Saksun, which made for […]

Gjógv: A Beautiful Seaside Village in the Faroe Islands (And a Great Place to Spend the Night!)

After spending a day exploring Kunoy, Klaksvík, and Kalsoy (say that 5 times fast!), Matt and I headed to visit Gjógv! There aren’t too many places outside of Tórshavn to spend the night (especially in the northwestern area), but Gjógv is a spot many people stay in because it has a great guesthouse. Even if you […]

Kalsoy: Incredible Views on the Hike to the Kallur Lighthouse & the Kópakonan Statue You Can’t Miss!

Kalsoy was one of the places I wanted to visit the most in the Faroe Islands, and I’m so glad that I got to go! We took a hike to the Kallur Lighthouse and the Kópakonan Statue and the views were INCREDIBLE. Plus, I got to take photos of tons of sheep along the way 🙂  […]

A Tale of Two Villages: The Faroese Forest of Kunoy and the Colorful Harbor of Klaksvík

After spending the night in Tórshavn, Matt and I drove to spend the morning in Kunoy and Klaksvík. We were going to take the ferry from Klaksvík to Kalsoy (it’s a lot of “k” names, so I’ll try to keep them straight!), and we wanted to make sure we got in line for the ferry early […]

One Day in Tórshavn: Walking Tour of the Colorful Capital of the Faroe Islands

Tórshavn was our second stop in the Faroe Islands after Kirkjubøur! Tórshavn is the capital of the Faroe Islands, and I loved all the colorful houses and harbors. Even though it’s the capital and a bigger city than most of the villages I visited, it’s still very walkable and you can see a lot in one day […]
