7 Days Faroe Islands Trekking Package

Join a week-long trekking tour in the Faroe Islands. This tour is for those who like to be close to unspoiled nature and enjoy meeting and chatting with the locals. You will get a fantastic insight in Faroese culture and society and, of course, nature. 

This is a small group trekking tour where you will stay in private homes. As you will stay with locals in Tórshavn, the tour guide can be flexible with the itinerary, if the weather should be challenging and it would be good to change the itinerary due to where in the archipelago the weather is good.

This is also a great option for those who find it difficult to find a place to stay in the Faroes due to lack of accommodation possibilities.

Your tour guide has been guiding in the Faroes for 30 years and she knows every corner and speaks 8 languages. ø
