The Faroese – a gem in the Subartic Ocean

In a way I wish for many people to see these islands, but I also would like to keep it safe from mass tourism.

In October a panel of 522 experts were asked by National Geographic to vote on which islands avoid the danger, which are succumbing to it, and which hang in balance.

The winner – totally unanticipated, at least by the Faroese population – were the Faroe islands.

If you want to know more about this gem in the sea, then visit my favorite Faroese website Framtak, which gives a comprehensive introduction to the Faroes (Faeroe Islands). It also serves as a useful resource for tourists, schools, businesses and individuals. It offers translation services, weather reports, shopping, and all kinds of other information like the following quiz:

What do you know about the Faroes?

I am happy to report I scored 100%!

How well did you do?


  1. I of course scored 100%. Because I just came back from the Faroe Islands. I learned it all from my mothers best friend.

  2. Thomas Shipley says

    I also scored 100%, since I heard all these facts from my mother after she had returned from the Faroe Islands.

    I might want to go there myself one of these days.
