Torshavn (Faroe Islands)

Torshavn Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Away from it all

The Faroe Islands are not your everyday holiday destination, and even though they are only about half as far away from the European mainland as Iceland, they are for some reason not a regular feat in Europeans' travelling plans. Yet the Faroes are rife with both natural and man-made beauty. The cliffs in the fjords as well as the mountains towering above them are awe inspiring and offer the type of dramatic scenery that helps one get away from it all.

The weather on the islands is characteristically unpredictable, with moments of bright sunny weather and misty and gloomy weather combined in one day. [Review by travelindicator]
