Amongst the rugged lands of the Faroe Islands, you’ll witness the natural, unspoilt beauty of their wonders in all their glory on board smaller ship Borealis. Hours of scenic cruising along Faroese waters will provide an abundance of unforgettable sights and experiences; the views of seabird havens such as the Vestmanna Cliffs and Hestur and Mykines islands, and of Cape Enniberg, North Europe’s second highest sea cliff, will be something to behold. Sailing by the mountains and waterfall of Gásadalur is a chance to see the archipelago’s most photographed place for yourself too.
What’s more, you’re afforded time ashore to get a feel for life in the Faroes too, in two of the country’s largest settlements. Explore Klaksvik, set to the backdrop of Borðoy Island’s rolling hills and rocky cliffs, to learn of its important commercial and fishing heritage, enjoy the peacefulness of the little streets and discover the Viking remains and pretty flora of Úti í Grøv. In Tórshavn, the capital, you can learn of pirate history and further links to the Vikings, see the city’s mix of diverse old and new architecture, or simply stroll the flagstone streets and parks, to taste life as a local here.
