Getting to the Faroe Islands

Even though the Faroe Islands are remotely located in the North Atlantic Ocean, reaching the islands is much easier than most people think. The Faroe Islands are only a short flight from mainland Europe!

Flying to the Faroe Islands

You can fly non-stop to the Faroe Islands from a variety of destinations, such as Copenhagen (Denmark), Reykjavik (Iceland), Edinburgh (Scotland), and Bergen (Norway). There are also seasonal flights from places like Barcelona, the Gran Canary Islands, Mallorca, Crete and Malta.

Two airlines fly to the Faroe Islands. These are Atlantic Airways and Scandinavian Airlines.

Flights from Reykjavik, Edinburgh and Bergen to the Faroe Islands with Atlantic Airways are only one hour long, and flights from Copenhagen with either Atlantic Airways or Scandinavian Airlines last only two hours. There are between three to four direct flights from Copenhagen to the Faroe Islands each day, depending on season.

Sailing to the Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands can also be reached by ferry from Iceland and Denmark. Slow travel when it best! This service is operated by Faroese company, Smyril Line.
