Nestled between Norway and Iceland, the rocky yet stunning landscapes of the Faroe Islands have attracted many a keen hiker and kayaker to its cliffs and grassy plains.

Temperatures are normally wet and cool, but this doesn't deter globetrotter Steve Hanisch from finding out the best way to see all of its splendorous offerings.

How to get to the Faroe Islands?

The islands form part of the Kingdom of Denmark, thus you will need to apply for a Schengen visa with the Danish embassy, but it has to indicate that you want to visit the Faroe Islands. If you already have a Schengen, you need to apply for an additional visa only valid for the Faroe Islands. You can read more about it here. 

To get there, you can either fly from Copenhagen, Reykjavik, Edinburgh and Bergen with either Atlantic Airways or Scandinavian Airlines. There are also sometimes seasonal flights from Barcelona, the Gran Canary Islands, Mallorca, Crete and Malta.
