The Faroe Islands is Denmark’s self-governing, Atlantic archipelago spread across 18 volcanic islands between Iceland and Norway, and connected by a series of tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges. Three words sum up this nation: remote, rugged, unspoilt. A paradise for fell-walkers, ornithologists and nature-lovers, the Faroes are home to around 300 bird species (including puffins), seals and a generous helping of sheep.  [ReadMoreMob]

The Norse god of Thunder lends his name to Tórshavn, which is one of the smallest and oldest capital's in the world. A smattering of shops and museums await here, while the restaurants are the perfect place to sample the local seafood. Tórshavn is also alive with art and a vibrant music scene.

The islands are dotted with multi-coloured cottages and grass-roofed wooden churches that nestle in the backdrop of dramatic waterways and treeless moors. An ancient network of cairn-marked footpaths that crisscross the islands provide a step back in time to the era of Vikings.
