The Faroe Islands are remote and reminiscent of another world. A group of 18 islands, they are battered regularly by the Atlantic winds, so time spent here is for a real adventurer. Formerly part of Denmark, the islands are home to more sheep than people, which is one of the reasons why Faroe-style knitwear has become popular.
Torshavn is the capital and it has the distinction of being one of the smallest capital cities in the world. The city is a peaceful port and the houses here have turfed roofs. It is a good starting point for visitors to the islands. Take a look at the Tingenes region down by the harbour. Alternatively you can head for Leirvik, a fishing village that is home to a great boat museum.
One of the other islands is named Viyoy and it is one of the wilder islands. It is home to some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe and it is a great place for birdwatchers. Some of the walks are hard work but worth it when you reach your destination. To the far west of the island group there is the island of Mykines, the remotest inhabited island. It is the ideal destination for hikers and has not yet fully come into the modern world – perfect if you want to get away from it all. There are boats in summer from the island of Sørvágur but at other times you need to travel there by helicopter from the airport at Vágar.
Getting around the Faroe Islands is now relatively easy. No longer do drivers have to negotiate the twisting mountain roads. The authorities have put tunnels through some of the mountains and all the roads are sealed. Some of the tunnels only have room for one lane of traffic though, so passing points have been put into place. A couple of the islands are now connected by undersea tunnels for which a toll is payable. If you have chosen car rental for getting around the islands tolls are taken care of via an electronic chip on the windscreen. The cost of the toll is passed back to the rental company and this charge is then passed on to you.
When you are driving your hire car you need to be aware that you have to wear seatbelts at all time and that headlights have to be used at all times. When driving, watch out for sheep as they have a tendency to run across the road just as you get near!
