What's there to do in the Faroes?

We are considering visiting the Faroe Islands in July for a week, it sounds beautiful but is there much to do there?

Scenery, walking, bird watching, boat trips.....

If you are wanting ready made entertainment then there isn't a lot to do. There are few museums and 'wet weather' activities.

BUT the glorious scenery more than makes up for this. We spent a week there and loved it. Pictures and some information is here:

I assume you have seen the Faroe Islands web sites?

www.visit-faroeislands.com/?Language=EN

http://www.faroeislands.com/

Go to this page where you can download pdfs of the tourist brochure, walking (excellent and informative), sea birds etc. It is worth emailing and asking for a copy of the brochure (although I see the web site still says 2007).

When I was planning our trip I emailed the Tourist offices on the different islands and found they were really helpful. They answered all my questions and gave me lots of ideas.

The Bradt Travel Guide to Faroe Islands is worth getting hold of as it has lots of information. There are reasonable town maps marking places of interest and also descriptions. It also gives details of hikes.

We drove, stopped, pottered, looked at the scenery, walked.....The islands were magic.

Not really, and that's the beauty part. :-)

The Faroes have an amazing scenery, so if you're into fotography, hiking or birdwatching, it's really worth the trip. Put on your hiking boots and go!

Another question rather than a reply....does anyone know if you can see the Northern Lights from Faroes? I'll be there in October this year and really hope i will be lucky this time as i wasnt the last time i was in Iceland. thanks

You might be lucky and may see the Northern Lights. However they can be very fickle... You need a really clear night well away from light pollution. Even then sightings are not guaranteed. Best displays are usually later at night.

If you are lucky and get a good display it is the most amazing sight which you will never forget.
