A LAND OF CONTRASTS: THE FAROER ISLANDS 2006

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

Vi­arei­i - Streymoy - Vagoy - Copenhagen

Departures: Sundays, May 28 - September 17 2006

Journey to the Faroe Islands - a journey back in time! Eighteen emerald green isles in the heart of the world's purest ocean. The Faroe Island is a small island community, covering only 1,400 square km, with approx. 44,000 inhabitants. The Faroe Islands are one of the last places in Europe where everyday life brings what people elsewhere look for: Closeness, Nature and Peace. On the Far÷er, man is in the minority. Here you find a paradise for nature and bird lovers. Choose from the many different activities offered here such as fly-fishing on one of the many lakes, hiking the mountains, bird watching or simply relaxing in the isolated beauty. Activities range from scuba diving, with experienced divers as your guide, to sea fishing, or fishing for salmon or trout in one of the numerous small rivers, streams or lakes. Enjoy wonderful walks in the mountains to distant lakes, or a hike out on the hills - seek out the crest of Enniberg on the North Islands, Europe's highest sea cliff. A modern society, in an unforgettable setting. The Faroe Islands are truly a land of contrasts: romantic and dramatic.
