Photo Safari

Due to the position of the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, the islands are characterized by changeable weather, as it is quite possible to experience all four seasons in one day. The unpredictable weather creates a magical and dramatic light, which in turn creates the most amazing motifs for a fantastic photo tour to the Faroe Islands.
