The Faroe Islands; a stunning and mysterious place to visit, with waterfalls, beautiful hills, rivers, and lakes, giving the place a stirring feeling. Once there it’s like you’ve entered into the old Viking Era! These islands are the perfect spot for those who love wild adventure and long walks which offer incredible sights. You can reach the Faroe Islands by a flight 2 hours 15 minutes from Copenhagen, but why not try the ferry?
Naturally, going by air from Copenhagen to the Faroe Islands airport is quicker and maybe even more comfortable for some people, however taking the 31 hour Norröna ferry to reach them is not just an interesting way of traveling but a real experience. Enjoying the arrival to the Islands on a ferry, breathing that sea-air, sleeping in a beautiful bedroom and eating in charming dining rooms, there is more space and less chance to be uncomfortably close to people during this period of pandemic. It is certainly less stressful than catching a flight.
Sustainability is the key to a better future for all and sustainable tourism is possible if we change our way of traveling a bit. The Faroe Islands by ferry is the perfect solution for those who want to avoid long check-in queues, and it recalls the importance of sustainable tourism. Indeed, this kind of travel is perfect to avoid wasteful CO2 emissions, which would be about doubled if using a flight. So what’s not to enjoy?
