Information about flights to Faroe Islands

Cheap flights Faroe Islands

Hundreds of miles north of Scotland’s northernmost point, stands the Nordic stronghold of the Faroe Islands, a remote archipelago with a mysterious, alluring beauty. Buffeted by the Norwegian Sea on its eastern flank and battered by the ferocious, booming swells of the North Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Faroe Islands breed a stoic, generous and resilient folk – their Viking blood still flourishing in these wild lands of breathtaking grandeur. Indeed, you’ll be warmly welcomed by this isolated community which still honours the gritty, poetic spirit of its Nordic heritage. Festivals and celebrations abound on these lively islands, with plenty of opportunities to get out and explore. With such a festive communal atmosphere, standing defiant in the far north of the world, you’ll never feel far from home.

Sightseeing

Flights to the Faroe Islands from London take you into Vágar Airport, which is a short distance from the local village of Sørvágur. While here, you’ll immediately notice the great bulks of granite rock overlooking the tight-knit community. On the Faroe Islands, the rough-hewn and rowdy elements of nature, from squalling weather currents to flocks of wild birds, dominate island life. Fog marauds over the moorland one minute, while piercing sunlight warms you the next. The picturesque harbour is worth exploring, giving a fascinating insight into the importance of fishing. The island’s capital of Tórshavn, named after the thunder god, is a must-see. One of the world’s smallest capitals, the city makes up for its lack of size in the wealth of its treasures. The Nordic House is the centre of the island’s revered folkloric culture. The islanders have a close affinity with their Viking roots, their language barely changed from its Old Norse origins. The centre is made to resemble an enchanted landscape filled with elves, and you’ll leave spell-bound by this museum –and city – full of ancient charm. A daytrip to Klaksvík promises unforgettable experiences of the island’s jaw-dropping scenery. Puffins abound and guillemots soar in this primal landscape of gigantic sea-cliffs towering over dark, swirling seas.

Food and drink

Due to its close relation to Scandinavian culture, and its seafaring community, the Faroe Islands have a rich culinary heritage. If whale meat isn’t your thing, you’ll find plenty of other delicious options with some of the finest seafood in Europe on offer. Caught fresh from the North Atlantic, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to fish. Not only are haddock and plaice available, but also halibut, herring and shrimp. For the more adventurous, puffins and other seabirds are served in many restaurants. The Faroe Islands also boasts its own brewery, with Föroya Bjór producing wonderfully refreshing beverages.
