The Faroe Islands consists of eighteen isolated islands in the Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Norway and Iceland. When standing in it's rugged, Game of Thrones like landscape, it's not hard to understand why National Geographic readers named it The Best Travel Destination in 2015.

Despite becoming an attractive destination for landscape photographers, it's rare to meet other travellers and you'll feel just how remote these islands are.. 

Visiting the Faroe Islands in early November gives us dramatic conditions and, if we're lucky, a fresh layer of snow.  With the constantly changing weather you can experience 4 seasons in one day, meaning endless of opportunities to capture beautiful images.

The islands are known for their amazing waterfalls, stunning fjords, epic coastline and rough weather. As a bonus, we'll also visit the southern most island, Suduroy, and photograph it's unique landscape while experiencing life on a remote island in the Atlantic Ocean.
