The Faroe Islands are a small archipelago hidden in the North Atlantic. With a population of 50,000 people and 80,000 sheep, it is a truly unique and secluded natural paradise. The 18 islands are combined 1399 km2 – less than half the size of Long Island in New York. Politically and socially, the country is a Nordic country with values and welfare similar to neighboring Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, etc.
The fishing industry and the economy are entirely intertwined, with ~99% of Faroese export being fish. In fact, Faroe Island salmon is known all over the world for its superior quality and taste.
The Faroe Islands history is rich and colorful. The first settlers came around the year 700, and the Faroese population today stems mainly from Vikings, which inhabited the country around the year 1000.
The scenic landscapes are unrivaled (see for yourself!). The wildlife is untamed (although no animals in the Faroes are dangerous to humans). The culture and culinary traditions are still pure and unspoiled.
