Visit the Faroe Islands. Towering out of the north Atlantic, the enigmatic Faroes remain a mystery to many. Situated northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway, these 18 individual islands are home to an array of spectacular natural sights. Rugged cliffs with cascading waterfalls that connect land to sea, brightly coloured houses with grassy roofs and an abundance of wildlife make this a unique and memorable destination for the curious traveller. Here, you can step back into the Middle Ages at Tórshavn – one of the world’s smallest capitals; you can indulge in delicious Faroese cuisine, which is still prepared to traditional, ancient methods that include smoking, fermenting, drying and salting; and you can soak up the wonders of the natural world at every turn.
