Take a spectacular 6-day trip to the Faroe Islands and experience these small but picturesque islands in the North Atlantic. This is the tour for those who want to explore the Faroe Islands by car. Traveling in your own car gives you the freedom to travel through small towns, see the fantastic views and investigate local events at your own pace. Flights, car rental and accommodation are all reserved and we also offer suggestions for photo stops and activities.

(Note: puffins usually seen in the Faroe Islands between mid-April and early September). Cross a pedestrian bridge over the Atlantic Ocean to reach the holm oak and the lighthouse. When you return to town again, a visit to the local cafeteria is always pleasant. On your return to Sorvagur, pick up your car and then head to Torshavn. You will spend the night in Torshavn.

The town of Famjin, located in a beautiful and spectacular environment, is also worth a visit. The original flag of the Faroe Islands hangs in the village church.
