Walking on the Faroe Islands

Walking on the Faroe Islands Overview

Out in the N Atlantic, the Faroe Islands are undeniably remote and a sought-after destination for the adventurous. Highlights include the dramatic scenery, colourful fishing villages, large seabird colonies (puffins, skuas and gannets) and learning about the history of a unique small nation. Running 23 - 30 August 2021, the trip costs from £ 3126.

The Faroe Islands lie 200 miles north of Scotland and at latitude 62°N in the North Atlantic Ocean. The weather, though warmed by the Gulf Stream, is notoriously changeable and never truly warm, but for the intrepid traveller the Faroes present stunning scenery, clean air, some marvellous walks and people who will welcome you.

During our week’s stay we visit 5 of the 18 islands of this remote archipelago, an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. We stay in the best available hotels, always well heated and with en suite facilities. With 2 Kudu tour leaders, we offer a daily choice of walks. Longer walks for those keen to cover ground and appreciate the scenery, and shorter walks at an appropriately slow pace for the less energetic or those especially interested in wildflowers and birdwatching.
