Visit Faroe Islands

Hey everyone - Mark and Mim here from @thecommonwanderer - we’re two Aussies travelling the world and documenting it on our blog of the same name! Over the next seven days we'll be sharing some images we took during our trip to the Faroe Islands in July.
First off, we’re sharing a photo from our day exploring the island of Mykines with our trusty guide Heini. We watched as thousands of puffins flew about our heads, in and out of their burrows, and dove into the North Atlantic waters to fish for their little ones. It was one of the most wild and exhilarating natural experiences we’d ever had.

@till__mueller here with my final post! It's day 5 and already the end of my takeover. I hope you enjoyed my view of the Faroe Islands. It was an impressive journey to the remote islands in the Atlantic ocean and it's definitely not my last visit. It must be an amazing experience in winter when the mountains are covered by snow.

@till__mueller - The village of Kirkjubøur is one of the oldest in the Faroe Islands. Here you can feel the history and see how the people lived in the early years of settling in the Faroe Islands. Did you know that the farmhouse of Kirkjubøargarður was built in the 11th century and that its still inhabited? #faroeislands #visitfaroeislands

Its Day 4 of the takeover with me, @till__mueller, and it starts with two seastacks called Drangarnir. Drangarnir is definitely worth a visit when you are in the Faroe Islands! It's a stunning scenery after a 2 h walk right beside the coastline. However, please note that this is private property and you have to book a guided tour with the owner of the property. I was lucky that the sea wasn’t that rough, and we were able to be picked up by motorboat and cruised around the island before heading back to Sørvágur where the hike started. #faroeislands #visitfaroeislands

Each village in the Faroe Islands has its own iconic church. The one in Viðareiði is one of the most beautiful ones, since it's located right beside the Atlantic ocean. When I visited this place there was a wedding in this chapel and almost the whole village participated. It was a nice experience to see the people in their traditional Faroese National Dresses. Maybe you will be lucky too, to witness this experience. @till__mueller #faroeislands #visitfaroeislands

@till__mueller here for the third day of my takeover. Today starts with the most iconic spots on the Faroes and it should definitely be on your list to see. The Múlafossur waterfall is not the tallest one, but in my opinion the most beautiful one because of the great landscape. You can shoot it each day during your stay and I think the atmosphere and mood will never be the same as the day before.
The tunnel to the village of Gásadalur was opened for the public in 2005. Before that the village was one of the most remote places in Europe only accessible on foot or by helicopter.

When leaving Klaksvík towards the north, you will have a great view of the island of Kunoy. There are only two settlements on the island called Kunoy and Haraldssund. Skarð was abanonded in 1919 but the ruins are still visible can can be accessed by a challenging hike. I think Kunoy is one of the less visited islands on the Faroes even though it has its own great spirit. @till__mueller #faroeislands #visitfaroeislands

@till__mueller here again! Day 2 of my takeover will continue with some drone shots. Endless roads right beside the Fjords…that what you get when driving and exploring the Faroe Islands. Fish farming is a very popular commercial sector there. Rainbow trout, wild Atlantic salmon as well as cod are reared in the clean ocean water at the shores of almost each fjord you cross.
When visiting the Faroes you should definitely try some local fish in one of the great restaurants around the island. Did you know that they have a Michelin-starred restaurant? Its called Koks and serves delicious traditional food!

Not that far away from the football field you can visit the largest waterfall on the Faroes called Fossá. Located near Haldórsvík, the water is cascading down 140 m to the Atlantic Ocean in two stages.
I was lucky that it rained during the night because one day before almost no water was falling down, which is quite unusual for one of the wettest regions in the world.

Hi, it's @till__mueller here! It’s time to share some of my photos from the Faroe Islands that I shot during my trip this June, and I’m really happy for the support from @visitfaroeislands. One of the first spots I visited was the football field in Eidi, which is definitely one of the most iconic ones in the world. When I was flying my drone around that place I was asking myself how many footballs were ever shot into the rough and cold Atlantic ocean :-) #faroeislands #visitfaroeislands

To wrap our takeover up, I have a photo of a sheep. I just told him a joke and he couldn't stop laughing. I’d like to thank @visitfaroeislands for having us, my buddy Derek for being such good company over the week and you guys for enjoying our photos! Thanks, over and out, Michiel.

@d_malou for the last day of this takeover. Suðuroy is the southernmost island, and people living there have to take a boat for 2h30 before getting to the main islands. The Akraberg lighthouse has been built on the southern tip of the island in 1909 and is still in use.
I want to thank again very much @visitfaroeislands for having us and really hope to come back soon.
I hope you liked our takeover, feel free to follow us at @d_malou and @michielpieters.
