DAILY TRAVEL INSPIRATION: Faroe Islands

Part of Denmark, the Faroe Islands are a remote archipelago in the North Sea between Iceland and Norway. Home to around 50,000 people and many more sheep and puffins, the islands are a perfect blend of relaxed Scandi attitude and stunningly dramatic scenery.

Torshavn is the capital of the islands, although in most other parts of the world it would barely qualify as small town. You’ll find the remains of the one of the oldest parliaments in the world and a thriving arts scene. Check out the Hoyma festival in October where acoustic performances are put on in living rooms, with audiences walking in between the houses to take in the different acts.

The main attraction of the islands is undoubtedly the natural environment. Hike up an old postal path to the stunning Gasadalur waterfall or take a helicopter tour out to some of the remote outlying islands. The Faroes are a haven for wildlife and the huge seabird colonies that populate the steep cliffs and sea stacks will impress even the most apathetic birdwatcher.
