Join us for a week as we take on the Faroe Islands. We will guide you through the unexplored and moody country that lies in the North Atlantic Ocean, somewhere between Norway and Iceland. The often harsh weather combined with the Faroe Islands unique landscape makes it a wet dream for any landscape photographer. The small settlements found through out these islands represents a hardiness that is as beautiful as the landscapes. Let us show you around in this unspoiled country that is the Faroe Islands!

 

ABOUT THE Faroe ISLANDS

The Faroe Islands is a self-governing, part of the Kingdom of Denmark. The many islands that are the Faroe Islands are connected by tunnels, ferries and even helicopters. Throughout the many settlements in this weather beaten country lives a population of about 50 000. The Faroe Islands have become quite popular amongst hikers, birdwatchers as well as landscape photographers. The unspoiled beauty found here has no parallell on this planet. 

The forgotten Faroes are just a short flight from the UK, yet they’re way off the standard traveller’s radar. Adrift in the frothing swells of the north Atlantic, this mysterious 18-piece jigsaw puzzle of islands is at once ancient and very modern. Multicoloured cottages and grass-roofed wooden churches add focus to the grandly stark, treeless moorlands. Timeless networks of cairn-marked footpaths crisscross craggy layer-cake mountains. But even the tiniest once-inaccessible hamlets are now linked by a remarkable series of road-tunnels.

Objectives

During this week in the Faroe Islands we will visit many grand locations like the iconic Gåsadalur as well as Kalsoy and Gjogv. We will prioritize sunrises and sunsets during this week. So it will be long days as the Faroe Islands are so much more than sunrises and sunsets.
The weather here at the Faroe Islands is often harsh, but doesn´t necessarily last very long, this will give us many unique chances to capture amazing light throughout the day. The weather also set a demand for proper outdoor clothing, as during this week we can expect anything really.

Since we don´t rent out gear, you need to bring clothing to keep you warm and dry. We can expect any kind of weather really, wind and heavy rain showers are not uncommon in this coastal region. This tour will involve visits to beaches as well as a few hikes, so proper footwear is important.
You will receive a recommended packing list upon registration.
