One of the best and most recommended ways to experience the Faroe Islands is to explore the country by driving around in a car.
The road infrastructure in the Faroe islands is excellent, making it easy and comfortable to drive along the roads and through the tunnels (both on land and subsea). Exploring by car is flexible and gives you plenty of time for pitstops to capture those all-important photos!
There are several car rental agencies in the Faroe Islands. Cars can be booked through the rental agencies’ websites, a travel agent, or directly upon arrival at the airport in Vágar. Many types of cars are available, from small family cars to powerful SUVs. The cars can easily be picked up and dropped off at the airport.
Notice that some of the car rental companies listed below are located at the airport and some are not. Some offer pick-ups and drop-offs at the airport and some do not.
