The Faroe Islands, or Sheep islands are they are commonly referred to, are an island group and archipelago under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark. The Faroe Islands are situated between the North Atlantic Ocean and the Norwegian Sea, approximately halfway between Norway and Iceland. They are growing in popularity with tourists looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday. The total area is approximately 1,400 km2 (540 sq mi) with a 2010 population of almost 50,000 people.

 Faroe Islands are group of islands consisting of 18 major islands. They have a total population of 48, 000. Yet, this tiny but terrible group of islands seems to be unpopular and still kept hidden and unexplored by many around the globe.

 Faroe Islands can showcase you their best destinations which are incomparable unless compared to paradise. When in Faroe Islands, you are not 5 kilometers far from the ocean. This land area is commonly surrounded by steep mountains with 70,000 sheep and 2 million pairs of seabirds in the skyline. And always remember their world’s largest flock of storm petrels.

Undeniably, Faroe Islands are awesome for nature lovers and to those who are looking for peace and some time alone far from the busy and loud streets of grass, mountains, sea cliffs, deep Blue Ocean and fresh air are the main reasons why people visit Faroe Islands. It is like heaven on earth. It is a perfect time to adore its natural beauty and reflect on yourself.

Since the Faroe Islands are surrounded by water, fishing is a primary occupation for many, even today. Apart from the usual walking and hiking you can take a tour around the sea shore. This will give you a view of how broad and beautiful the ocean is. Many tourists now return year after year to the Faroe Islands drawn back here by the natural beauty of the place and the warm and friendly locals.
