About Us

Experience Faroe Islands is an operator focussed on providing authentic travel experiences in smaller groups, offering a range of hand-picked tours to some of the must-see locations of the Faroe Islands. By focusing on smaller groups, we ensure you get immersed in Faroese nature, culture and history while also being shielded from the crowds.

About our One-Day Experiences

Authentic experiences in small groups is our slogan – and we’re proud of it. By offering our experiences only to smaller groups each individual benefits more through an experience that’s more intimate and authentic. We have carefully designed every tour to make sure you experience the most popular destinations in the Faroe Islands at the right time – trying, as far as is possible, to avoid being in the same places as the mass-market tour busses. Our expert local guides will ensure you’re immersed in Faroese nature, culture and history as well as being shielded from the crowds. Whether on our Famous Kallur Lighthouse Experience or Giants of the North where we take a different route to many of our competitors, or an evening hike in the mountains near Tórshavn where we’ll take you well-off the beaten track, we prioritise maintaining the sense of being at one with nature that so many visit our islands to experience. Find our full list of daily tours here.

Private Experiences and Bespoke Trip Planning

For those for whom small groups just aren’t small enough we also offer Private Experiences for friends and family. These can be arranged for between one and four persons. Our Private experiences can be adjusted and tailor-made to ensure you get a personalised bespoke experience. If our scheduled Private Experiences aren’t enough for you, we are happy to help you design your own itinerary or refer you on to some of our trusted partners to make sure you get the right experience while visiting our islands.
