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…

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…

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…
