Remote and mysterious. Rugged and dramatic still yet so beautiful. Its like being in an episode of Game of Thrones. The Faroe Islands has a magnetic attraction for landscape photographers, and for a good reason. Battered by the elements, towering cliffs rise from the deep sea. Huge waves are constantly pounding the shoreline, creating amazing formations. Isolated in the Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Norway and Iceland, National Geographic named the Faroe Islands the most authentic and unspoiled group of islands in the world. This comes as no surprise to us. Dynamic, constantly changing light and weather makes these islands magical for photography. We can experience 4 seasons in an hour. One moment it might be raining, the next we have warm sunshine on our faces. Turn around and it might be snowing or hailing. Its fascinating and beautiful.
In mid April there is also the odd chance of seeing the worlds greatest magic show, the elusive Aurora Borealis, dancing over the fjords at night as well as experiencing fresh snow on the mountain tops.

With regards to an itinerary, we do not have a fixed itinerary/tour program on our tours and workshops. The Faroe Islands is extremely unpredictable because of it’s many local weather systems. This means conditions can change within minutes and kilometres. Thats why we always are working through a very flexible schedule, but locations such as Gjógv, Gásadalur, Sørvágsvatn, Saksun, Tjørnuvík, Funningur, Nordradalur and Sornfelli plus many more are on our list. It’s a full on photography tour/workshop – so the activities are planned around sunrise, sunset and night photography excursions. The whole archipelago is packed with locations, so the weather and light conditions will decide where we will go.
