Go to the Faeroe Islands
Bradt Guide to Faroe Islands
by James Proctor
From the Bradt Travel Guides series.
Faroe Islands: The Bradt Travel Guide is the first country guide dedicated to these unspoilt North Atlantic islands. Known for their towering cliffs and mountainous terrain, these islands offer a unique opportunity to experience nature in the raw. Hike through some of Europe's most unspoilt landscapes, explore traditional villages complete with turf-roofed houses, cycle round fjords and valleys or watch over 300 species of bird attracted by the abundant fish stocks of the North Atlantic. The Faroese capital, Tórshavn, offers a surprising number of lively bars and excellent restaurants where the catch of the day has to be tasted to be believed.
