Before You Go

Where are the Faroe Islands?

The Faroe Islands are comprised of 18 volcanic islands, located between Iceland, Norway, and Scotland. Because of its' remote location, these islands are largely untouched, offering beautiful, pristine landscapes, waiting to be explored, and photographed. Hike up traditional Faroese pathways, and breathe in some of the cleanest air in the world.

There are two main routes to the Faroe Islands, via Reykjavik, Iceland, or Denmark (fly Atlantic Airways from Copenhagen, or sail with Smyril from the Hirtshals). If you need help planning your route, please let us know. We're happy to help!

What to bring:
warm, comfortable clothing (for yoga and excursions)
gloves, hat/toque
surfing/diving clothing and/or equipment
comfortable waterproof hiking shoes
personal products
yoga mat
water bottle

optional: yoga towel, blocks, strap, bolster, eye pillow - we will be practicing restorative yoga, and will have a very limited supply for your use

Please note that there will be a limited selection of goods and services in the Faroe Islands, so please plan to bring necessities with you.
