THW4CPH: Faroese Winter Tour / 4 days

This short-break includes two day trips as well as a gourmet dinner at a restaurant of your choice. It is the perfect introduction to the Faroe Islands; on clear evenings you may even see Northern Lights!

The Faroe Islands

A firm favourite with National Geographic Traveler Magazine. This gem of a destination has been voted the ‘Best Trip 2015’ destination by the magazine’s readers – and only a few years ago the same readers rated the Faroe Islands as the No. 1 destination in the world among 111 island communities.

Midway between Norway and Iceland the Faroe Islands rise out of the Atlantic Ocean like a hardy little flower. The islands offer thrilling experiences and a rugged environment: Steep cliffs rising from the open sea, narrow straits between the islands, natural harbours surrounded by small villages and a countless number of birds. A nation of 18 small islands of which 17 are inhabited by less than 50.000 people and more than 3 million sea birds – a dream for the ornithologists and all nature lovers.

Ancient Norse culture still alive today

The Faroese are a proud people who, due to the geographical location, have been able to preserve their own culture and their own language which has its roots in the Old Norse language from the Viking Age. History is still an integral part of the daily life – it is one of the few places in the world where you can still experience the old medieval ballads and chain dance, which people in Europe practiced more than 800 years ago.

Amazing scenery

The scenery at the Faroe Islands is spectacular.
You can experience all four seasons in one day, which is rather unique - from brilliant sunshine to misty hill fog, to short rain showers. Average temperature in the summer is 11C and in the winter 3C.
