Faroe Islands

The most affordable helicopter ride in your life

Have you ever dreamed about flying in a helicopter? I have and my dream came true 6 years ago. If you visit Faroe Islands don’t miss this chance to make your wish fulfilled. Apart from tranport to and from Faroe Islands, Atlantic Airways offer helicopter rides between the islands. Helicopters serve mainly to inhabitants to get from one island to another therefore the tickets are very cheap. Of course there is a catch to it: you can book only one way ticket on the departure date, no roundtrips on the same day. That’s no problem if you know how to plan your journey 馃榾

Kirkjub酶ur – The easiest day trip from T贸rshavn

The easiest day trip from T贸rshavn has to be the village of Kirkjub酶ur. One of the free public buses from T贸rshavn goes there. More info about free buses here. The journey takes up to 20 minutes and you can explore this beautiful historical village and enjoy the views over neighbouring islands. Just watch out for the strong wind. It was super windy when I was there but still worth it.

T贸rshavn – one of the smallest capitals in the world

Small but charming. Another advantage is that you don’t have to spend days just to see half of the sights you wanted, like in the big cities. As you remember from my first post I had to take a taxi from the airport to my hostel. Thank God for that as my hostel was quite far from the bus station and up the hill so I didn’t have to carry my suitcase. I stayed at Hostel Kerjalon which according to Google is no longer opened 馃榾 The hostel was operated by Hotel F酶royar which is next to it and seems to be still in operation. Farther away from the centre but the views compensated for it. You could see the whole of T贸rshavn and the neighbouring island of N贸lsoy. The journey to the centre of town took around 30 minutes by foot.

Faroese Fairytale

When I tell someone one of my favourite holidays was at Faroe Islands people usually don’t know where it is or they are surprised that was my favourite destination. I don’t remember since when I wanted to visit the Faroes but I love some unusual destinations and everything Nordic so it was a perfect combo for me and another dream come true.
