Welcome to the Faroe Islands! The Faroe Islands in Danish means the Islands of the Sheep, and you will see why! It’s located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean about 400 miles off the coast of Northern Europe, between Norway and Iceland. The first people to colonize the islands were Norwegians about 1,200 years ago and it become a major Viking settlement in that time. Its main industries are fishing and tourism - people come to experience its natural beauty, incredible bird life and delicious Faroese gastronomy.
First up is Gasadalur, which for a long time it was the most isolated town in the Faroe Islands. It’s a very popular town to hike to because of its natural scenery and its cliff views. In 2006 they opened a tunnel to make the town more accessible. Fun fact: Gasadalur means Goose Valley.
Lake Sorvagsvatn is the biggest lake in the Faroe Islands. It has an area of 3.4 sqkm, and its located on the island of Vagar, where the airport is. It takes a few hours to hike around the entire lake, so get your hiking boots ready! The best way to see the lake is by helicopter, the only way to see the lake emptying out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Torshavn is one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world! Torshavn in Old Norse means Thor, God of Thunder. It’s a modern city with the highest concentration of hotels, restaurants and cafes in the islands. You can explore the old Tinganes district where the parliament building is. You can see the national museum, check out some galleries, see the harbor and dine at some delicious modern and traditional restaurants.
Now we head to the southernmost village in Streymoy, Kirkjubour. This was the religious center on the Faroe Islands for over 1,000 years until the reformation. We came to see the 13th century ruins of the Saint Agnes Cathedral, the House museum and a middle age church.
We head north on Streymoy to Saksun. This is a beautiful town with turf roof houses. The best time come is during low tide because you can see the beach and walk on a sand bar to the lagoon. There are no restaurants here so be sure to bring a snack for a picnic!
Tjornuvik is the northernmost town on the island of Streymoy. It’s a quiet village, but the scenery is beautiful its beach has epic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Next up is Gjogv, the northernmost town on the Island of Eysturoy, the second largest island in the Faroes. It’s a small scenic village with a charming bed and breakfast. We stayed a night, but you can just as easily just come for the day. Gjogv is undoubtedly on of most picturesque places in the Faroe Islands. The name Gjogv means gorge – it was named after the village’s natural gorge
Klaksvik is the second largest town in the country and from here you can take a ferry to Kalsoy. I suggest you pass by Bakariio Jorun (Bakery Jorun) and grab a snack or lunch. They have plenty of Danish-style toasts with different toppings, as well as homemade pastries, coffee, and beverages.
A 25-minute ferry ride will take you to Kalsoy, AKA island of the man. There is one road that travels up the east side of the island connecting a handful of villages. Kalsoy is the best place in the Faroe Islands to go hiking. Or, you can just drive around and snap tons of photos of this picturesque island.
Next is Vidoy, the northernmost island in the archipelago. Here we visited Vidareidi. The northern islands are more traditional, less modern but if you love taking photos of amazing scenery then you must visit Vidareidi.
Lastly we are heading to the Island of Mykines! We took a helicopter but you can also take a ferry. Once you arrive you need to hike about 90 minutes west to see all the sea birds. There are over a dozen species of birds like the Gannet, Fulmar, Starling, Gulls, Razorbills and the most famous that everyone comes to see are the Puffins! Be sure to bring a packed lunch, drinking water, a warm outfit, comfy shoes, and don’t forget your camera!

The Iconic Photography Spots of The Faroe Islands
Today on the vlog we went to some Iconic Landscape photography spots in The Faroe Islands.
Find my Faroe Islands photography on IG at
There are lots of iconic photo spots on The Faroe Islands. In fact, within a 10 minute drive of the airport, you can find about 4 shots that are absolute classics. Some of the best photography locations anywhere in the world are all within a short trip. And sure, this photo trip to the Faroes is meant to be about location scouting and finding new locations. But, we can't help but stop and photograph the iconic photo spots.
On today's photography vlog, I took the participants of my workshop to some of the most iconic spots to sort of get them out of the way. If you capture the classic images right away, you're not so worried about being sure you get those images later on It takes a lot of weight off your shoulder.
So, as this Faroe Islands photography vlog series continues, look for fewer of these iconic photo locations, and more hidden gems we find along the way.
Ingi's GuestHouse apartment Miðvágur, Vágar 370, Faroe Islands
Hosted on Airbnb, its a highly rated stay place in Midvagur, Faroe Islands. Situated close to the Airport, its location is prime. Owner Mr. Sonfinnur is a great host and has built the entire house himself as there is no labour available in Faroe Islands ( people do their work themselves). Highly recommend this place for a wonderful stay!
