SAILING IN THE FAROE ISLANDS
The 18 islands of the Faroe Islands are surrounded by the North Atlantic Ocean. No point in the Faroe Islands is further than five kilometres from the ocean. Sailing is a fantastic way to experience the beautiful landscapes of the islands, offering completely different views compared to the ones from land.
You can discover these views of the Faroe Islands by sea while sailing with ships, boats, or even an old schooner. Some of these ships or schooners are old and have a great history, making the journey even more interesting.
Some offer scheduled trips while others offer tailored trips according to your wishes.
Contact the various companies below for more information and to book.
Bumping across the ocean surrounding the Faroe Islands in a speedboat is an exhilarating experience. There are four companies that offer speedboating in the Faroe Islands. Check them out here.
CHARTER A FAROESE BOAT
Explore the fiords of the Faroe Islands with a Faroese boat. Whether you enjoy fishing or just sailing along the seashore, this is a unique experience for a family or a group of friends. You can also book guided fishing tours that include a meal using what you catch!
Boats can be chartered or without a captain given relevant qualifications. When you charter a boat, your boat is suitable for onboard accommodation. Anchoring in the marina, you are located in the heart of the town or village. You may choose to use your marina as a base and make sightseeing tours with your boat. Alternatively, you could visit other more rural villages, mooring overnight in local marinas.
