The year 2020 has turned out quite different than expected due to the global outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. As restrictions are gradually eased, and travellers re-welcomed to the Faroe Islands, we are excited about the prospects to host you for a tour across the islands. However, due to restrictions in place, and to protect our visitors and our guides, we will only offer private tours for the remainder of 2020. As such, we have arranged three experiences accompanied by one of our local guides on an unforgettable journey – read more here.
If you haven’t decided yet whether you should travel to the Faroe Islands or not, here is a brief update on the Covid-19 situation in the Faroe Islands and what conditions apply:
The Faroese Government has decided to follow the Danish government and re-open to travellers from EU Member States, Schengen countries and the United Kingdom. The condition of entry is that the infections rate in your country of residence is low – fewer than 20 per 100,000 people infected. Travellers from countries not included above can not enter the Faroe Islands without a legitimate reason (e.g. work, family, etc.)
Travellers to the Faroe Islands get tested for COVID-19 upon arrival. Testing is currently free of charge, although this might change at a later point in time. While waiting for the test results, travellers must self-quarantine at home or their pre-booked residence, vacation rental, hotel etc. Caution is therefore advised during your first hours on the Islands until test results have come back negative, typically the next morning.
