The Faroe Islands: A Magical Winter Wonderland

We were told that we had gotten lucky with the snow. After only three days on the islands, a snow storm blew in over the country, covering every bit of every island in a beautiful blanket of white. Usually it never stays for long on the Faroe Islands. They have snowstorms often, but it’s rare that the snow actually stays on the ground. It was…

Exploring the Southern Tip of Eysturoy: Æðuvík and Toftavatn

After exploring Vestmanna and Kvívik, Katrine, Sheena, Michelle and I drove to the tiny village of Æðuvík on the southern tip of Eysturoy. We wanted to make the most of our day together, and since we’re all big hiking lovers, it seemed only natural to go for a hike together. The weather wasn’t treating us too well that day, so we decided to only go…

Viking Cruise on the North Atlantic: A Week in the Faroe Islands and Iceland

On October 15th, my family and I set off on a week-long adventure on the North Atlantic Ocean: The Viking Cruise with Smyril Line to the Faroe Islands and Iceland. Back in 2013, my mum and I went on the same cruise at the same time of the year, and this was when I fell in love with the Faroe Islands – and also East…

Eysturoy: A Beautiful Hike to Ambadalur in Gjógv

After camping for six nights and having our tent flooded in a storm, we decided to move to an actual house in Tórshavn, the capital of the Faroe Islands, which we had borrowed from Andras’ lovely family. Our original plan was to camp on several islands for two weeks before moving to Tórshavn, but instead, Tórshavn now became our base for exploring the islands, which…

An Unforgettable 18 Days on the Faroe Islands

Two days ago, I arrived home from one of the best trips in my life; my fourth trip to the Faroe Islands. My friend Katrine and I had been planning this trip for a long time, and had a full itinerary for our 18 days on the islands. We wanted to go camping and hiking for two weeks and then spend 4 days in the…

Four Islands in Three Days

Ever since my trip to Sandoy, I’ve been eager to see more of the outer regions of Faroe Islands. Originally, I had planned on visiting Vágar, Fugloy, Svinoy and Suðuroy, but I only visited one of these places – Vágar. Elien and Liam had to leave Faroe Islands on Thursday, so Wednesday I thought I would go to Rigmors and Jens’ place to pick them…

A Roadtrip through North Eysturoy

Since I didn’t have much succes finding a proper lightweight and waterproof tent in Tórshavn, I decided to try Couchsurfing instead. I knew that it was very last minute, so I contacted everyone available on Faroe Islands. I got a few answers, some saying that they already had guests, some saying that they were busy or travelling themselves, but thankfully, a nice man named Rói…

Skála and the Storm

The hostel that I stayed at in Tórshavn, Hostel Kerjalon, was a bit pricy in my opinion at 250 kr. pr. night, but it was nice and clean with private showers, which I very much prefer. As I wrote in my previous post,I had one roommate in a four-bed room; Thorhallur from Iceland. On March 11th, we both checked out of the hostel, and afterwards…
