You may not know where the Faroe Islands are, but their history and geography make them a great destination in northern Europe. Midway between Scotland and Iceland, the islands were an early destination for the Vikings, and they are reachable by plane or ferry from various cities in northern Europe. If you love hiking, you'll love the striking vistas afforded by dramatic cliffs. The Faroe Islands have more than 685 miles of coastline, so the seafood is as fresh as it can get.
