I’m just getting back from my sailing adventure to the rugged and untouched Faroe Islands found between Iceland and Norway in the Atlantic. It was an AMAZING adventure and one of my favorite locations to date!
Life has been a little crazy since being home and while I’ll be writing about the the trip in detail in the next two weeks, today I wanted to share some of my photos I took from the trip. The Faroe Islands are truly unique and spectacular. My pictures won’t do them justice, but hopefully they’ll give you a taste of what they’re like.
I’ll share my experience and some tips in the next post but for now, let’s end this week with some photos of a truly awe-inspiring place:
Exploring the Faroe Islands by 60 foot sail boat was a unique and amazing experience. Rubicon3 is the company I went with and this is their boat, Hummingbird. She is a beautiful yacht and I loved sailing on her. Here we are in Nordragota on the island of Eysturoy.
We were in a port every night and had lots of opportunity to get out and explore the towns and go hiking. This was just above the town of Nordragota. We had amazing weather and spectacular views!
A common site we’d see in many of the towns was grass covered roofs. Above is a view seen in the capital city of Tórshavn.
Another grass roofed structure seen in the village of Nólsoy on the island of Nólsoy.
A view of the village of Hvannasund. I love the variety of cliffs!
Next came the island of Mykines which is a popular nesting ground for PUFFINS! I just couldn’t get enough of them!!
The island of Mykines itself is beautiful and lots of places to hike with spectacular views as you take in the variety of birds that live there.
We saw many of the villages and towns on most of the islands. Our last port was in the second largest city of Klaksvik. We were able to spend a few days here and see quite a bit of it. It’s a beautiful city!
On my last night in the Faroes I went for a hike and saw some of the most spectacular views as the sun came out after a rainy, misty day.
Well there you go! Hope you enjoyed these photos and have added the Faroe Islands to your own Adventure Craving Bucket List!
Like I said, I’ll have a write up on the full trip as well as some tips, tricks, and a packing list in an upcoming post.
Have a wonderful weekend!
