There's no better way to explore a new country and its culture than through camping. The experience of waking up to the sounds of nature is simply priceless. So, pack your bags, grab your tent or RV, and get ready to embark on an unforgettable adventure.

Camping has become increasingly popular in the Faroe Islands in recent years, with over 20 campsites now available throughout the country. These campsites can be found all the way from the capital to almost every island, including smaller ones like Mykines, Kallsoy, and Fugloy. However, it's important to note that camping is only permitted at designated campsites, as there are no public wilderness areas or common spaces in the Faroes. Additionally, it's not allowed to spend the night in camping cars along roads, at rest stops, laybys, or viewpoints.

It's worth noting that certain campsites are designated for tents only, while others are exclusively for RVs.

Please respect camping regulations in the Faroe Islands. You will see signs like the one above at various locations on the island.

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.
