Who Goes to the Faroe Islands?
Apart from visiting football teams who play the national side in the World Cup and Euro qualifiers, it’s people who want to see wild scenery, experience history and live amongst friendly hospitable people whilst not minding cold and rainy weather.

How do I get to Torshavn?
Vagar Airport is the only airport in the Faroe Islands and has only international flights to Scandinavian countries, Barcelona, Aalborg and pleasingly London Gatwick. This allows British travellers to get there easily on a direct flight to experience something very different. The airport is on a separate island to the capital and the two are linked by an underwater tunnel. The small terminal is undergoing redevelopment which will see improved facilities from the current terminal. For now there’s a small café and a shop selling Faroe Island souvenirs, a post box and two car hire desks. Apart from that, there is little to do there except watch the planes fly in and out and see the weather approach the islands from the south west.

What Can I do in Torshavn?
For a town not much bigger than a village, there’s surprisingly a lot to do. Visit the site of the first Faroese parliament at the Tinganes. The parliament has been meeting here for over 1,100 years. The town’s quaint museum tells you more about the building and the parliament as well as detailing the hardships faced by the islanders over the centuries. The town’s cathedral is over 200 years old and again is a pretty wooden structure that’s worth stopping at for a photograph. Live music is very popular across the islands and the almost Gaelic sounding tunes can be heard regularly at the town’s music gallery.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Torshavn is the capital city of the Faroe Islands yet has only 13,000 people living there. The island of Streymoy where it’s located is nearly 150 square miles in area and as such needs a hire car to explore every nook and cranny. You can collect a hire car from the city of Torshavn or from the airport that serves it; Vagar Airport.

If you’ve organised transport into the capital and want to hire a car there, we can help by allowing you to select your ideal hire car online and pre-book it, meaning that when you arrive in Torshavn, it’ll be ready and waiting for you. The roads are good on Streymoy but with inclement weather possible at any time, a four wheel drive vehicle may be a good idea. Don’t worry for we have plenty for you to choose from and all at low prices.
