Faroe Islands Faroe Islands

«Sheep Islands» will be a real tourist paradise for lovers of colorful northern nature and Scandinavian culture. The Faroe Islands are part of Denmark, but have an autonomous status. They are an archipelago of 18 islands of volcanic origin. They are located in the northern Atlantic Ocean, away from the mainland.

Faroe Islands' remoteness from continental Europe has allowed the Faroe Islands to largely preserve the traditions of the ancient Scandinavian culture (for example, most of the local population speaks the Old Norse language). The main channel of communication between the islands and other countries is the sea – there are several large ports on Faroes, which receive tourist ships from the continent.
