About Faroe Islands

Although the Faroe Islands are part of the Kingdom of Denmark they are not in the European Union.

The Faroe Islands

The 18 rocky islands that make up the Faroe Islands lie in the middle of the North Atlantic, some 602 km west of Norway and 310 km north-west of Scotland - halfway between the Shetland Islands and Iceland.

Map of Faroe Islands

The most important of the 18 islands are Streymoy, Eysturoy, Vagar, Suouroy, Sandoy, and Borooy.

The weather in The Faroes is very unpredictable, although the windswept islands do benefit from the warm currents of the Gulf Stream.

Weather in Europe:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around Europe.

The Faroes are mainly treeless, have deeply indented coastlines and a number of fjords.

Irish hermits from Scotland hid themselves here until the islands were found by marauding Vikings in the 9th century.

The Faroes then became a communication link between Scandinavia and the Viking colonies in Iceland, Greenland and, for a while, in North America.


The capital of the Faroe Islands is on the south-eastern coast of Streymoy Island. Being ice-free, Torshavn makes a perfect principal harbour.

The inhabitants of the Faroe Islands are of Scandinavian descent and still speak a moderated form of the old Norse called Faeroese.
