I needed to do an unique and adventurous excursion, and so the Faroe Islands seemed like the suitable choice, before moving back into the usa. For five days we got to see all the natural wonder and spa that the Faroes have to offer. We experienced stunning scenery, quaint townsheritage, and tasty Faroese gastronomy. Where else can you spend with puffins, or find outstanding beauty at a landscape of trees? The Faroes are a terrific off-the-beaten-path destination that nature and experience lovers will love.
Although we captured several hundred pictures we snapped away on our i-Phones, and here are our top 27 Instagram photos that we wanted to share with you. The Faroe Islands are a photographer’s dream come true, once the topic is so stunning, but truth be told, it is difficult to take a bad picture.
