hiking in the Faroe islands
HIKING HOLIDAY; 8 days / 7 nights, from € 1.590,- | DKK 11.850,-
The Faroe Islands is a dream destination for those who love nature and outdoor activities. It is an exceptional place to travel in because there is no need to go far to experience outstanding and unspoiled nature. As much of the more rugged scenery is accessible only on foot, a great way to explore the islands is to hike around them, there are footpaths on all the islands, some marked with cairns which function as inland lighthouse to aid walkers' navigation between villages.
We have designed a package that offers you a great week packed with varying walks. We will provide a proposed program and detailed route descriptions but you will set the agenda and pace just as you like it.
Day 1: After arrival you will pick up your rental car at the airport and drive to Hotel Vágar - only 200 meters down the road - where you will spend the first two nights. We recommend that you start this hiking week with a hike over the mountain to the remote village Gásadalur.
