About this book

Situated between Scotland and Iceland, the Faroe Islands are arguably one of Europe's best-kept secrets. Wild, wet and windy, they are off the main tourist trail and remain one of the few places in the world where life moves at a sedate pace. Written by James Proctor, who has been visiting the islands for over 20 years, this new edition has been updated throughout. It brings together all the practical information that the independent traveller needs: details of new website addresses, transport links, weather reports, emerging tour operators, and information on new hotels and restaurants throughout all 18 islands. A visit there is a tremendously rewarding experience.
