There are dramatic cliffs all over the Faroe Islands, and it is easy to see very spectacular scenery without excessive exertion. The bird life on the island of Mykines is wonderful. There are lots of attractive villages with old wooden houses. The food is quite good, especially if one is partial to creamy fish soups and steak! Randi was a wonderful guide, full of insights into Faroese history, culture and folklore. One highlight was her beautiful singing of a psalm in Faroese in one of the churches we visited.
I have been looking forward to this trip for quite sometime and didn't disappoint on most levels. Firstly, the walks were good but were a little more difficult than expected. Most of the walks had a much steeper and longer ascent than expected as I think some of the trip notes weren't accurate. Therefore, the walks took longer to complete and felt that at times me and a few other members of the group were slowing others down. Secondly, the hotels we stayed at were good, staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were comfortable. I am coeliac and therefore have to eat a gluten free diet because eating in foreign countries can be tricky. However, in the Faroe Islands it was much easier than expected. Each hotel and establishment we ate at I was made to feel comfortable about my dietary requirement and I always had something lovely to eat. Finally, overall the trip was memorable and I would visit the islands again in a heartbeat. The scenery was spectacular and even though at times they were difficult that walks were also great. My two favourites places of the trip were the village of Gasadalur an the Island of Mykines. Both are fully recommended and top places to visit in the Faroes.
This is a great trip for those who like remote but not over challenging walking with dramatic views and amazing nature all around. Be prepared for fast changing weather and a flexible approach to the itinerary. Faroese people are very welcoming and have a unique history to share - the quality of accommodation and meals is above average too.
