31 July – 7 August 2023
Remote and mysterious. Rugged and dramatic still yet so beautiful.
It’s 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. It’s fascinating and beautiful. In late July the Faroe Islands is stunningly green and fresh. Puffins can be found and the temperature makes it a really comfortable time to visit this magical place.

Day 1: Arrival at Vagar Airport. Transport to Gjogv
You will arrive at Vagar Airport where we will pick you up. After saying hi to the rest of the group we drive to the starting point, around 1,5 hours from the airport. We arrive the amazing village of Gjogv. Here we check in at the wonderful Gjaargardur Guesthouse. This place is simply breathtaking. Wonderful staff, amazing food, and the location are breathtaking overlooking the surrounding mountains and fjords. We shoot sunset in one of the crazy seascape spots in Gjogv.
Day 2 – 4: Enjoy the adventure
The following days we will explore the incredible areas in the northern parts of the Faroe Islands. Stunning locations are scattered around and we will be moving around in our van trying to maximize our photography options. The weather and light conditions are constantly changing and fabulous light can be expected at all times. We will make sure we are at the best locations at the best times! Places like Tjørnuvik and Saksun are on the list, in addition to many incredible unnamed spots.
Day 4 – 8: Vagar – adventure continues
On day 4 we check out from Gjaargardur and drive south towards Hotel Vagar. This nice hotel is located at the airport. This is convenient for several reasons. Most importantly we are located in the middle of a long list of epic locations; Leitisvatn, Gasadalur, Tindholmur, Bøur and Sornfell Mountain. We continue to be flexible and move around according to the conditions. These spots are simply incredible and have to be seen in person! On the final day we have breakfast at the hotel and say goodbye. The hotel is located at the airport so we can walk to the airport.
