Faroe Islands

Wild, remote, incredibly beautiful and stunning - a place like no other! This archipelago of 18 islands doesn't see many visitors, but I think it is definitely a must see. I can't wait to go back there again! These are some of my favourite photos from my 2009 trip. June 2015: I have just been back to,the Faroe Islands and added some new pictures for you to enjoy.

The coastline of Nolsoy is similar to that seen throughout the Faroe Islands, accompanied in this photo by the grey skies that one comes to expect in this country.

The Faroese are football crazy, so it's no surprise that Nolsoy, even though the population is only about 250, has its own football field!  Whilst I was in the Faores in June 2015, the national football team defeated Greece 2-1, which caused great excitement.

Much of the native flowers in the Faroe Islands are quite small, but they bring joy whenever you find them.

Nolsoy is only a short ferry ride from Torshavn and makes a great day trip if you enjoy hiking.

The road leading in to Gjógv.  The drive to this village was stunning in itself.
