Faroes

Jump to last reply

Thanks for replies to my earlier message.
It's hard to know where to start so I will do a few over the next few days.

Getting there - I have no idea how this is best done from North America - I guess by air changing at Copenhagen but it might be cheaper via Reykjavik, Iceland or Bergen, Norway.

Both the shipping line, Smyril and the airline, Atlantic Airlines are registered in the Faroes, which is about as independent of Denmark as it's possible to be without complete independence. (I can do a bit on history if anybody wants to ask but otherwise I'll leave this.)

Atlantic Airlines flies from Copenhagen, Denmark - Stansted, England - Bergen, Norway or Reykjavik, Iceland. We flew from Manchester, UK and changed at Copenhagen. The Faroes airport is in the island of Vagar and was developed from an Air Force base built by the UK who occupied the Faroes as soon as Germany invaded Denmark. It is a pleasant little airport combining friendliness with efficiency. There is a bus to the island capital of Torshavn.

The Smyril Line has quite a complicated route. It's possible in summer to go direct from the north of Scotland but the return is via Bergen! Torshavn is its port in the Faroes.

My next message will be on getting around the islands and you will do well to find a map. http://home.worldo nline.dk/raf/Faroes/Fomap.html will do very well.
