For intrepid families seeking an unforgettable vacation, a stay in Tórshavn is an excellent choice. As the cultural hub of the islands, its history and bustling life offer plenty to keep the children entertained.

For a couples holiday

Couples seeking a romantic retreat should consider the picturesque village of Gásadalur. Isolated and idyllic, it offers unmatched tranquility and awe-inspiring views of the majestic Múlafossur Waterfall.

For a holiday with friends

Adventure-seeking friends looking for a memorable trip should consider the vibrant island of Vágar. Its array of hiking trails, like the famed cliff-side walk to Trælanípa, enthralls visitors with its grandeur.

When to Visit

Due to the Faroes' northern location, the high season between June and August offers the best chance to witness its captivating midnight sun – an unmissable experience. Though visits during this period are often in conjunction with increased tourism, the weather is the most favourable for a wide array of outdoor activities.

For the more budget-conscious, autumn and spring provide an ideal compromise. The weather remains relatively mild, and there are fewer tourists flocking to the must-see spots. Furthermore, winter visits exhibit an entirely new face of the beauties of the islands, encompassed by the ethereal Northern Lights.
