Clothing

The weather in the Faroe Islands is unpredictable and ever-changing. It is, therefore, a good idea to pack a variety of clothing, suited to all sorts of weather (mostly cool-ish).

Essential to include in your wardrobe for the Faroe Islands are a sweater and a rainproof coat. And why not be a little optimistic and bring along sunglasses as well, you never know!

 

Staying some extra days?

If you choose to stay some extra days the Tourist Guide is a great place to start looking for inspiration for what to do.
