The Faroe Islands – perfect for getting away from it all
You're more likely to bump into a troll than a tourist in these beautiful islands
Set between Iceland and the Shetland Islands, the Faroe Islands first became a settlement in AD560. Nowadays, on some of the islands, the Faroese and their brightly painted houses are vastly outnumbered by birds and sheep, and lush valleys, mountains, waterfalls, black volcanic rock and cliffs form a backdrop to the call of seabirds and the alleged growl of trolls. Staying at the Hotel Foroyar in Torshavn costs from £225 per room, per night B&B.
