Remote and picturesque, Faroe Islands represent a mosaic of green pastures and treeless moors. While on tour of Faroe Islands, you'll find that the sea is never more than a stone's throw away, even when you're deep inland. Traditions remain strong in the self-governing archipelago, known for coastlines made of steep cliffs and deep fjords. Your sightseeing in Faroe Islands options include long walks across the interior, where you'll have to brave shifty weather, and schooner or wooden sloop expeditions to see the fjords.
