Dive into the unique culture of the Faroe Islands with a Viking history tour, lunch with locals, a fish drying lesson and a scenic fishing trip

Your Faroe Island adventure begins as soon as you step off the plane, as you embark on a sightseeing tour of some of the archipelago's most stunning locations as you travel to your hotel in the capital, Torshavn.

Your action-packed schedule includes a fishing tour, where you can have a go at fishing for your own catch for lunch. You can also keep an eye out for puffins and razorbills overhead, and seals, porpoises and whales in the water.

Experience Faroese hospitality and traditions first-hand with a meal in a local home, and a lesson in traditional Faroese fish-drying techniques.

These islands are famous for their rugged landscapes, and you'll get to see majestic cliffs from the sea, as you sail into the mesmerising fjord Trongisvágsfjørður, and from above, as you take a captivating helicopter ride to the southernmost island of Suðuroy.

During the trip, you'll be based at a four-star hotel in Torshavn, with one night in a local guesthouse on Suðuroy.
