Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I get to the Faroe Islands?
    The easiest way to get to the Faroe Islands is by airplane, being Copenhagen the best connecting airport. Atlantic Airways has multiple flights on a daily basis from Copenhagen, they do however also operate although less frequently to and from Edinburg, Bergen, Billund, Oslo, Paris and Reykjavik. SAS also operates directly from Copenhagen once daily from March to October. If you are arriving from the United States or Canada then Reykjavik is the better option.
  • Which type of accommodation do you use during your photo tours?
    I always try and find the best accommodation option available according to your budget and expectations. Most options are located in Torshavn, but also around some of the islands. You can opt from anything from a 3 star hotel to 5 stars as well as self catering guesthouses. On occasions AirBnB is also used for a small group or a party of close friends where shared bathrooms are not an issue. Typically the choice is to stay at the capital and at one of the higher end hotels in the capital Torshavn, the new subsea tunnel has shortened the distance to many of the locations around the islands.
  • Which form of payment do you accept?
    Currently I am only accepting bank transfer directly to my business account. In the near future I will accept online payments directly from my website.
  • What size are your groups?
    Group typically consist of 6 to 7 guests at the most in a 9 seater van. Larger groups will only be accepted upon request and are usually when I am co-guiding for other suppliers.
  • What kind of weather can I expect?
    The Faroe Islands are located in the middle of the North Atlantic where the Gulfstream passes right above the isles. For this same reason the average temperatures are typically between 6° to 12°c during most of the year, it can get colder during the winter months as well as slightly warmer during the summer months. You can expect quick changing weather conditions all year round.
  • How about the fitness level?
    Many locations are of relatively easy access, so moderate fitness should be sufficient. Some of the more remote locations require longer walks and occasional hikes, anyone with a good health condition and can easily reach these places as well. There are however some locations of the beaten path that require a higher level of fitness such as Drangarnir.
  • What type of clothing should I bring?
    It is important to be prepared for all kinds of weather! The weather can change quickly in the Faroe Islands, one minute it can rain, the other it can hail & wind is quite common. Multiple layers and quality protective rain gear are important, as well as hiking boots and or waterproof hiking shoes are recommended. Crampons are only recommended during the winter months and during hiking at higher altitude when ice can be formed.
