The Faroe or Faeroe Islands are 18 islands in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean.
The countryside is dominated by steep mountains and there are about 70,000 sheep and some 2 million pairs of seabirds, including the largest colony of storm petrels in the world.
The Faroe Islands are undeniably beautiful: green, rugged and wind-swept. Most visitors to the islands come between early July and late August.
But if you ever find yourself in the mood for a night out in town, you will find that Torshavn caters for your every need with its great shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.
