Experience Faroe Islands is a best-in-class operator providing authentic travel excursions in the Faroe Islands. Our carefully drafted tours cover the most spectacular locations in the Faroes, delivering powerful experiences you cannot get anywhere else. By offering our services only to smaller groups, we ensure you get immersed in Faroese nature, culture and history while also being shielded from the crowds.
Our tours are designed for intimate and authentic experiences, as we try to avoid mass-market tourism at all cost. Whether on the Kallur Lighthouse or Giants of the North excursion, or well off the beaten path on an evening hike in the mountains north of Tórshavn, you can take comfort in knowing you are accompanied by a skilled guide and travel companion that has extensive knowledge of the area. Our experiences provide not only unmatched natural scenery, we also take you on an historical and cultural journey that gives participants a deeper and holistic perspective of the places we visit. Most importantly, we operate with the humblest respect for the natural habitat and apply disciplined environmental practices to ensure that our activities are sustainable.
