Getting There in Faroe IslandsEdit This
The Faroe Islands consist of 18 islands that sit between Scotland,
Iceland and Norway. The islands have a population that is 91 percent native
Faroese whose language, also entitled Faroese, is 1 of the last 2
West Nordic languages in existence--the other being Icelandic and the
extinct language, Norn. Most tourists are drawn to the Faroe Islands
for the lush, green scenery and the antique surroundings. You can get
to the Faroe Islands by both boat and plane. Don't forget that most
websites are priced in DKK (Denmark Kroner), which is .2 of a US dollar
or .13 of a euro.
The Faroe Islands have their own airline, Atlantic Airways. Planes fly out from many major European countries and visitors
can also book a hotel through the site--which is a good idea because
budget accommodations are not available on the Faroe Islands and any deal
you can get would likely be helpful. Atlantic Airways also has a helicopter
service that can transport you to other parts of the Faroe Islands. Air
Iceland flies to the Faroe Islands as well as to numerous towns in
Iceland and Greenland.
To arrive to the capital of Torshavn by boat
from Iceland or Denmark, use the Smyril Line, who services these countries
regularly. If your destination is not Torshavn but another village in
the Faroe Islands, you can arrive at the capital on a Smyril Line ship and
take a Strandfaraskip Landsins domestic ferry to wherever you
need to go. These ferries are also a good way to see the untouched nature of the Faroe Islands.
