Facebook Instagram Twitter Even though fishery is not very stable for Faroe’s economy, it is the biggest industry in the Faroe Islands.Salmon farming is very popular. Faroese are proud of their salmon and advice tourists to try its unique taste.Country is in relatively early stage of tourism development and all destination management organisations are cooperating to prepare a good infrastructure and facilities with higher standards for the future tourists.Surprisingly, there is very good infrastructure between the islands. Good quality of roads and tunels makes it easy to travel through whole country under 3 hours.There are multiple options to pass through rough terrain. Except the road and boats, Faroe Islands have sofisticated air transportation, which is mostly paid by the government.Many locals living in small villages have hard time to make business from tourism. Unfortunately, most of the business is kept in capital area. Even if we wanted, we couldn't find any restaurant in this cozy small town.Small remote settlements have hard time profiting from tourism. Inhabitans of the villages focus on fishing and farming.Settlements at the Faroe Islands are not very rich in attractions. This 'pirate ship' was the main attraction in the small village of Fuglafjørður, but the best part about it was the nature around, which is the main reason of tourism.Even though farming does not belong among the biggest industries, sheep are everywhere and create a danger on the roads.Temperature barely goes under 0 degrees Celcius in the winter. Nevertheless, snow changes with rain, sun with storm, multiple times a day.Weather changes very quickly. Once you can see a storm ahead, you have 10 minutes before it reaches your position.This road to Gjogv passes next to the highest peak (880m) and can get quickly impassable due to snow.Having almost no hiking trails in the Faroe Islands gives you lot of freedom to explore the country in your way.Technically, it is free for tourist to hike anywhere. However, big part of land are farms and farmers complain about tourists disturbing life of sheep.Faroe Islands are at the stage of developing hinking trails for safety of tourists.This is the same hiking trail shown on the previous image. It's clearly visible, that they are still far away from having safe trails.It is easy to get lost in mountains. However, there is free rescue helicopter service in the Faroe Islands, where tourists don't even need to have any insurance.It is relatively easy to regulate tourism via air transportation. Currently there are only two providers that offer flights. If new airline wants to fly to Faroe Islands, it needs to have regular flights all year, not only in high season.
