The Faroe or Faeroe Islands are 18 islands in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway. With their volcanic origin the islands are rugged and rocky.
The weather is maritime and quite unpredictable. It can change quickly and it varies extremely, from moments of brilliant sunshine to misty hill fog, to showers - there can be sunshine on one side of the mountain range, while it's raining on the other side. During the summer the islands are often overcast by summer fog. The Gulf Stream south of the islands tempers the climate.
Vága floghavn. The Faroe Islands are served by one airport (FAE). The airport is on the island of Vágar. There are buses to Torshavn and other major cities; the schedules are aligned with the arrival of all flights.
The Faroe Islands are a small country and getting around is easy. All of the Islands are connected by a public transport system.
The native and official language of the Faroes is Faroese. It is one of three insular Scandinavian languages. Speakers of modern Scandinavian languages such as Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Icelandic may be able to puzzle out the written language, though spoken Faroese is generally not mutually intelligible with these languages.
Nearly everybody speaks English, at least to some extent, however in some remote places you may be likely to encounter people who only speak Faroese and Danish. Other Nordic languages are also understood, especially Norwegian due to the islands' geographical proximity to Norway.
The Faroese currency is the Faroese króna abbreviated kr. It is not an independent currency, but a version of the Danish krone, hence they are equal in value. The coins come in 25 (currently being taken out of usage) and 50 oyra (one quarter and one half of a Króna, respectively), 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 króna. Paper notes come in 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1000 króna.
You should note that almost everything in the Faroe Islands is expensive. All consumer sales include 25% VAT (sales tax) but displayed prices are legally required to include this, so they are always exact. If you are from outside Scandinavia you can have some of your VAT refunded when leaving the country.
Opening hours in the Faroes are longer than they used to be, but many smaller stores still close early on Saturday (usually at 2PM ) and nearly everything is closed on Sundays.
Tórshavn is the obvious choice for shopping. But both Runavík and especially Klaksvik have some nice stores where you can buy clothes and other nick nacks.
It is very modern to wear wool and woolen clothing on the Faroe Islands. You definitely will find trendy sweaters, jackets and (cheaper) hats, shawls and gloves.
There are a few second hand shops in Tórshavn. Circus down by the harbour sells cool clothing from Iceland - a bit pricy, but worth checking out.
Remember to ask for tax free and get 15% back when you leave Faroe Islands.
What to see
Slættaratindur (882 m) - the highest mountain in the Faroe Islands. It is well worth climbing, the only downside is that the summit is often wrapped in fog.
Beinisvord or Beinisvørð is the highest sea cliff in Suduroy and the second highest in the Faroe Islands with its 470 metres. The view down to the sea and towards north to the west coast of Suduroy is breathtaking.
The Lake of Toftavatn - the lake is in the south of Eysturoy, situated on the east coast of the fjord, Skálafjørður. The low rolling hills around the idyllic lake, have the widest streches of heather on the islands. They are considered unique in the Faroes. Furthermore, the terrain is a splendid choice for an outing.
Rinkusteinar (the rocking stones) - a strange natural phenomenon at Oyndarfjørður, two very large boulders which permenantly stand rocking in the ocean, just a few metres from the shore. The stones have been rocking as far back as anyone can tell.
Risin og Kellingin (The Giant and his Wife) - Two magnificant basalt sea stacks off the northern tip of the island, close to the village of Eiði. Legend has it that the two giants had come to tow the Faroes back with them to Iceland, However, the sun rose and they where both turned into stone. They both stand looking towards Iceland which they will never reach.
