There are so many of the best things to do in the Faroe Islands that you’ll actually struggle to find a starting point. I mean, the Faroe Islands are a gorgeous little country, perched in between Iceland and Scotland.
And, you know what, they’re too incredible to miss! These volcanic islands are a picture-perfect place to explore, especially as the landscape feels so unspoilt, cared for and totally pristine.
I’m already itching to go back to the Faroe Islands, it really was just stunning.
One of the best ways I’ve found to describe the islands is like an Iceland without even a fraction of the visitors. Whilst exploring the island, I almost felt like we were the only ones here. It felt so idyllic and dreamy.

Mulafossur waterfall is around 20 minutes drive from the main airport of the Faroe Islands, head west in your car and explore this gorgeous coastline and tiny little village.
