The Faroe Islands for beginners 

'ALL-INCLUSIVE' ROUND TRIP; 6 days / 5 nights, price € 1.525,-

This is the package for the first time visitor to the Faroe Islands. We at 62N have put together a program with a local guide showing you around the rich natural and cultural sights providing a real insight into the Faroese community. Experience the unique atmosphere, the serenity vs the ever changing and sometimes violent weather. The traditional way of life vs the modern age, which seems to have taken the Faroes by surprise , leaving a charming blend of old and new. The tour will take you around the islands reachable by car and you will spend your nights in three different hotels. This package is an opportunity to get to know and perhaps fall in love with the Faroe Islands, you may find yourself wishing to return for one of our other package offers and maybe spend a little longer in “The Land of Maybe” as it is sometimes referred to.
