Faroe Islands from New Perspectives: Gjógv, Elduvík and Við Áir

On our first full day on our Easter trip to the Faroe Islands, we woke up late after the night out, to a world of rain and fog. Still, we were determined to get something out of the day and decided to go on a roadtrip to the northern part of the island of Eysturoy. Poul drove us and our friend Tórur decided to come…

A Flight Mishap: Attempting to Get to the Faroe Islands in Thick Fog

Katrine and I have been planning our second trip to the Faroe Islands for a while now. We were going to leave in the morning of April 6th and arrive two hours later. But for some foggy reason, the weather gods didn’t want that to happen. We set off at 10.15 AM from Copenhagen in brilliant weather with a clear sky and a brightly shining…

Easter Holiday: Back to the Faroe Islands

In August 2016, Katrine and I went on our first trip to the Faroe Islands together. I had been there four times before, so I was excited to finally share my love for the islands with a good friend. Just as I had expected, Katrine fell in love with the islands as well. When the trip was over, we both knew that we had to…

My Worst Travel Moments of 2016

2016 has been a year of many beautiful and memorable moments, the best of which I put together in a list in the previous post.

This year, I’ve visited 24 countries and in every one of them, I’ve had beautiful and memorable moments.

My Favourite Travel Photos of 2016

2016 has been a glorious travel year. I’ve visited 24 countries, 16 of them new ones, and everywhere I’ve been, I’ve brought my trusty Sony camera with me. Even here in Copenhagen, I can’t live without it. I’ve taken thousands of pictures this year, more than ever before, and choosing my favourites hasn’t been an easy job. It took me a while, but here they…

The Last Adventure: Hiking and Camping in Skúvoy

Our last helicopter trip to a remote island destination was Skúvoy, the fourth smallest island in the Faroe Islands. After visiting the two least populated islands, Koltur and Stóra Dímun, we were excited to finally visit an island with a population of more than 7 people. Skúvoy has a population of 52 people who all live in the only village on the island, which is…

An Hour on Stóra Dímun: Visiting the Island of One Family

After a great day on Koltur, an island with just two inhabitants, it was time for us to fly to another sparsely populated destination. We were going to Skúvoy, but first we had a 1-hour stopover on the tiny island of Stóra Dímun, where only one family of 7 people lives. Stóra Dímun is a feast for the eyes – and the landing was breathtaking.…
