The Faroe Islands

Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean only two hours by plane from mainland Europe the 18 mountainous islands of the Faroe Islands offer 1,289 kilometers of coastline and a proximity of no more than five kilometers to the ocean from any point of the islands. 

The close proximity provides the visitor with a variety of experiences of nature – from dramatic landscapes meeting the wild ocean to the peacefulness of the mountains to the nightlife of the capital Tórshavn.
