Driving in the Faroe Islands
One of the best ways to experience the Faroe Islands is by car, as it gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace.
The Faroe Islands have 900 kilometers of roads, 450 kilometers are highway and 450 kilometers are country roads. Most are two-lane and paved.
17 of the 18 islands are connected by bridges, dams, ferry routes, or helicopter service. After the establishment of two sub sea tunnels, it became easy to travel from one end of the country to the other.
Faroese roads have route numbers. The main highway with two lanes has a two digit number, but the more local roads associated with the villages have three digits.
When you drive in the Faroe Islands, you must pay particular attention to the sheep when they are on the roads. One should slow down when sheep are at the side of the road.
Not all tunnels are equipped with lighting, so it is required to drive with your lights turned on in the Faroe Islands.
