17 Favourite New Destinations of 2017

Another beautiful travel year is over, and it’s time to look back at some of the most amazing new places that I saw this year. In 2017, I visited 14 countries of which 7 were new ones.

November in the Faroe Islands: First Afternoon Hike in Kirkjubøur

Yesterday at 7.45 PM, I arrived in Vágar Airport for my seventh visit to the Faroe Islands. As all people who have ever met me know, I LOVE this country. I’m fascinated by every corner of it, and I go back as much as I possibly can. I started travelling to the Faroe Islands in 2013, then went back twice in 2015, twice in 2016,…

Third Time Lucky: The Iconic View of Koltur over Norðradalur

On one of our last days in the Faroe Islands in April, Katrine, Poul and I decided to spend a sunny day driving to beautiful spots on Streymoy. One of these was an insta-famous spot on the Oyggjarvegur mountain road with an iconic view of Koltur and the holm Trøllhøvdi, which almost looks like a mini-version of Koltur, framed in by the mountains surrounding the…

Night on Hestur: A 30 Kilometer and 8,5-Hour Hike Around the Entire Island

After spending two nights in Vestmanna with Rigmor, Jens and their family, it was time to head back to Hoyvík and Poul and his family. We had arranged to go on a 1-night trip to the island of Hestur the next day, as Poul’s family owns a house there. Hestur was one of four islands in the Faroe Islands that I had yet to visit,…

A Night on Koltur: The Island of Two People

After spending 8 days in Tórshavn with day trips out to exciting locations such as  Saksun/Tjørnuvík, Vestmanna, Kirkjubøur and Gjógv, it was finally time to go camping again! After our little misadventure in Klaksvík, where our tent got drenched in a storm, we were both nervous about trying out the tent again, but the weather for the next few days looked promising, so we decided…

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…
