Sailing expedition to the Faroe Islands

This summer we invite you to join a sailing expedition around the Faroe Islands. The Faroe Islands are Danish islands in the Atlantic Ocean between Iceland, Norway, and Scotland. This is a traveler's dream: beautiful northern nature, fjords, and waterfalls on rocks covered with greenery.

Every day we will go to new places, fish and land ashore - look at rocks, cities, and lighthouses, climb mountains, and watch birds. We will enjoy the picturesque nature and hospitality of the Faroese.

Why the Faroe Islands?

To enjoy nature

The Faroe Islands are sometimes called the archipelago of freedom, sometimes a social utopia. The most famous Faroese waterfall, which falls directly into the ocean, is called in Faroese - "The most beautiful waterfall" (Mulafossur Waterfall). We will see everything with our own eyes.

To visit the Faroe Islands in the season but without tourists

Summer is the season of tourism in the Faroes, but you can avoid it if you travel by boat. The yacht allows you to be flexible and plan your trip so as to avoid the crowds of tourists at the main attractions

To see more and pay less

The Faroe Islands are an island country with many places that cannot be reached by car. On the yacht we will be able to visit the most interesting places.
