As any true camper knows, camping is a fantastic way to experience a country and culture. Camping has become increasingly popular in the Faroe Islands in recent years, also among locals.

Because there are no public wildernesses or common areas in the Faroes, camping is only permitted at designated campsites. Furthermore, it is not permitted to spend nights in camping cars along roads, at rest stops, laybys, or viewpoints.

Please have ‘virðing’ for camping regulations in the Faroe Islands. You will see signs like the one above at various campsites across the islands. 

Please note that some villages with narrow roads do not allow access to camping cars. These villages include Tjørnuvík and Múli. Please stay informed about driving restrictions before travelling to villages.

and punishable by a fine.

› Be mindful of sheep and birds you may 
encounter in the fields – or on the roads!
