The Islands of Sheep: Faroe Islands Travel blog

INTRODUCTION

Thank you all my patience readers for staying with me and supporting me in my quest. I know I may not be the best travel blogger in the world, but I try to present my work in as much creative and interesting way as I could.

I have been to lots of places in an India like Varanasi, Mumbai, Delhi and much more and there are always some places which you wish to go someday

Probably we have heard about it from somebody/somewhere or saw it on T.V on the internet or maybe it’s one of our wonderlands, which we know doesn’t exist but wish it is somewhere.

Even I had a vision where I want to travel if I get the chance to in the near future. Unlike most, I didn’t want my dream location to be some Party capital metropolitan city where you can rave whole night and where you unleash the beast within yourself. I didn’t want it to be some ancient city also which a preserved the history in itself either.

I wanted it to be some isolated distant mythical place away from the outer world in the lap of nature where you lose yourself in its beauty.Which is surrounded by fog and mist like some mythical terrain of your dreams! Which may have the touch of the present but still has nurtured its heritage and culture. Where you feel yourself like you are a child experiencing the world for the very first time and whatever you see becomes your extraordinary memory.

About which if you will think in future sitting on your chair, will leave you with a big smile and should take you back into the lane of memory, just back into those time.

I saw that place in the Faroe Islands.

What is the Faroe Islands ?

Faroe Islands are chains of islands located between theNorwegian Sea and the North Atlantic approximately halfway between Norway and Iceland, 320 kilometres (200 miles) north-northwest of mainland Scotland.

Famous for its Norwegian wind and sheep this group of islands has total 20 number of Islands of which 17 are habitat, rest are just abandoned and no one lives on them. This is the only place in the world where the ratio of sheep and humans are 2:1, that means of their population of 50,000 they have 1,00,000 sheep. So don’t be surprised if you encounter sheeps trying to sabotage your camp site.

The citizens of this islands are the disciple of Vikings, who were known for their savage and ferocious nature.

But don’t get fooled by their history. People here are really generous and hospitable in their nature

Geographic Structure

 

This group of islands are mainly made of centuries old volcanic rocks, which are mainly very rocky in nature has steep cliffs.

Sitting at one of that glorious centuries-old cliff made of hot molten lava and watching the sun setting in the sea is one in lifetime kind of experience, which I truly want to do.

How To Reach

Reaching to this magnificent terrain is not so east task since it’s not very much attached to the outer world. But instead of all these circumstances, you can reach here without  much ado.

By Air-

Vagar Airport is the only airport can be found in the Faroe Islands and hence, in order to travel by air this should be your destination. This airport is well connected to the major airports in Europe and so you will not have a problem catching a flight to get here.

By Sea-

Being an Island you have the option to take a cruise ship to get here. You can avail various cruises online from European countries and enjoy a romantic cruise till you reach your destination.

I personally want to reach here by the sea route only, while I will be enjoying the Atlantic sea and stopping at every major island.

By Land-

Error found..!! I’m really sorry to bring it but you can’t come here by road. But you can definitely commute here by the car.

Best Time to Visit-

Random view from the Islands

Weather in the Faroe Islands is really chilly so definitely the best time to visit the Faroe Islands is during summer, from May to July. When the sun shines on the whole island and bringing the island back to life.

When wildflower grows amid the thick green grass surrounding the whole terrain and you smell the odour of fresh grass.

That’s also the best time apparently to go for hiking on the island. When you can feel the humid salty sea air blowing through your hair. When you can hear the roar of the sea louder than a whole pack of lions.

My To-do List-

Like every travel travelling amidst of their dream location even I have mine to do list which I definitely gonna try if I ever get a chance to visit these mythical islands.

I would love to go on the hike through these islands and want to feel the purest form of nature

Cycling-

Cycling through the Island part 2

Some places to commute by cycles by this you can even experience the most untouched and deserted parts of the islands. But cycling here is not so easy because of it’s unpredictable weather and really long tunnels. You should be having working lights in your cycle and reflectors in your cycle.

Enjoy the Faroese Cuisine-

Local food 2

Food in the Faroe Islands is assuredly one of the most significant parts of its culture and they are especially famous for its lamb dishes

 Fishing in the Atlantic Sea

The main source of the economy in the Faroe Island is fishing and most of the people rely on this only. I want to go on the fishing trip in the North Atlantic sea with these fishermen and want to catch some exclusive fishes. Maybe I will release them after that, but I want to cherish that moment.

Sit and Enjoy-

Sitting in the Faroe Islands

Sometimes the best thing to do is just nothing. That want to do, just sit at the edge of the cliff on some deserted part of the Island and let the world pass. I want to see the sunset and get indulge in it’s beauty. I want to capture that moment in my subconscious mind.

 

Overall-

There are some goals in your life which has always moved you and kept you in your endeavour to move ahead. For me visit to the Faroe Islands one of such thing which I want to achieve and has motived me to move ahead without getting rushed

  1. I have to express some thanks to this writer for rescuing me from such a circumstance. Just after scouting through the search engines and seeing strategies that were not productive, I believed my life was well over. Being alive without the presence of solutions to the problems you have resolved by way of your main guide is a crucial case, as well as the ones that would have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I had not come across your blog. Your primary ability and kindness in taking care of all the things was important. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a stuff like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the high quality and sensible help. I won’t be reluctant to propose your site to anyone who desires guidelines about this area.

  2. Write more, thats all We have to mention. Literally, it seems as though you trusted the recording to help make
    your point. You obviously really know what youre talking about, why discard your
    intelligence on just posting videos in your site when you might be giving us something
    enlightening to read through?
