A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME - THE FAROE ISLANDS 2006

8 days / 7 nights, Copenhagen - Faroer Islands - Torshavn - ěravÝk - Copenhagen

 

Departures: May - September, 2006

Welcome to the Faroe Islands - one of the undiscovered treasures in the North Atlantic! Situated in the heart of the Gulf Stream, halfway between Iceland and Norway. The Faroes are rich in history, culture and long standing traditions, dating back to the Viking area. The Viking settlers established their own parliament with local Tings in different parts of the islands. The main ting on Tinganes is Torshavn, a colorful thriving town, historical and picturesque, and one of the smallest and most pleasant capitals in the world. Situated in the heart of the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic at 62░00░N, the Faroe Islands lie northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway, a small island community, covering only 1,400 square km, with approx. 44,000 inhabitants. The Faroes ever-changing scenery of ocean, sea caves, bird cliffs, mountains, fertile valleys, and endless daylight during summer are one of the last places in Europe where everyday life brings what people elsewhere look for: Closeness, Nature and Tranquility.
