The weather in the Faroe Islands during summer is generally mild, however it can also be unpredictable and dynamic in nature. We suggest that you pack a variety of clothing to suit all seasons, including windproof and water resistant gear. A rain jacket is a must, while gloves are not essential but you will be happier with them rather than without. Make sure to wear sturdy hiking shoes and wear layers – that way you can add more or take layers off if you get too cold or hot!
