Discover The Faeroe Islands Denmark

Also known as the Sheep Islands, the Faeroe Islands are composed of a total of 540 sq mi of land on the 18 islands of which 17 are inhabited. 373 miles west of the Norwegian coasts, steep cliffs, cut through by fjords, and an abundant fauna of birds and fish live amongst these volcanic islands. Here you will discover various landscapes, from granite coasts or cliffs, to dunes and forests. The oceanic climate of the archipelago is responsible for the fresh summers (around 10C) and soft winters during which whales and seals delight and feed themselves. The main towns are Klaksvik, Vestmanna and Tvoroyri.
