5 Day Summer Faroe Islands Photo Tour

Journey to the far reaches of the Faroe Islands on this exciting 5 day photography tour! This beautiful archipelago of volcanic islands has so much to offer for budding landscape and nature photographers. Situated in the midst of the North Atlantic Ocean, it boasts some of the most dramatic scenery on the planet in remote and wild surrounds.

This is a place where you're likely to meet more sheep than people. During summer in the Faroe Islands, you'll have the chance to photograph spectacular wildlife, including puffins, skuas and fulmars nesting on sea cliffs high above the ocean. The landscapes will be verdant and lush, made all the more charming by small villages and lighthouses offset by towering mountain peaks, magnificent fjords and breathtaking coastlines.

Over the course of this five-day photography adventure, you'll spend your time exploring the best that the Faroe Islands has to offer as you take your photography skills to another level. Your four nights of accommodation during the tour will be pre-arranged for you before your arrival, as well as all of your transfers to and from your shooting locations.

Throughout this experience, your expert photo guide will be on-hand to help you make the most of the dynamic weather conditions. They’ll share their depth of knowledge with you and get you to all of the right places at the right time to capture the best photos of the Faroe Islands.

Don't miss out on this adventure of a lifetime. Check availability by choosing a date.

    Daily itinerary

    Day 1 - Vágar Island


    5 Day Summer Faroe Islands Photo Tour


    Are you ready to begin an exciting adventure in the Faroe Islands? You’ll be picked up from your accommodation early in the morning to begin your journey.

    You'll spend much of today exploring the wonderful sights of Vágar Island, as your trusty guide takes you to many of the classic locations for photography. The first stop will be Sørvágsvatn, a massive lake that sits atop cliffs towering over the ocean. This is one of the most stunning places in the Faroe Islands. We'll hike to the famous vantage point known as 'Trælanípa', where we'll capture the mindblowing perspective of this lake perched above the sea.

    In the evening, we'll head to Gásadalur for a wonderful sunset session by the extraordinary Múlafossur waterfall. This iconic location is perhaps what the Faroe Islands is most well-known for, with water tumbling over the side of a tall cliff face into the North Atlantic Ocean below.


    Day 2 - Mykines island


    5 Day Summer Faroe Islands Photo Tour


    On day two, we'll rise early for breakfast and take a scenic ferry ride out to Mykines Island, where pretty turf-roofed houses dot the landscape. This island is a paradise for birds and we'll spend the day in pursuit of the famous puffins, which are known to be very friendly in these parts!

    One of the highlights of the day will be the 100-year old Mykines Hólmur Lighthouse, a photogenic building at the end of the islet which makes for a truly inspiring composition. On a calm day, it seems like something out of a fairytale, while stormy conditions can hurl up large waves from the ocean, resulting in dramatic and breathtaking scenes.

    In the evening, we'll take the ferry back to Vágar Island, where we'll head to a local restaurant for dinner. Thereafter, we'll have a sunset session

    As evening begins to draw near, we’ll board the ferry back to Vagar island. After dinner we’ll head out for a sunset shoot at Tindhólmur, an enchanting islet that offers an epic view of the Drangarnir sea stacks – one that will surely stand out in your portfolio!


    Day 3 - Eysturoy Island


    5 Day Summer Faroe Islands Photo Tour


    After breakfast on day three, we'll check out of our hotel and make our way to Eysturoy Island – the second largest in the Faroese archipelago. Our first stop will be the colourful and picturesque town of Gjógv, situated at the mouth of a beautiful 200 metre long gorge running all the way to the sea. We'll explore the town and its surrounds, before heading to a local restaurant for dinner in the evening.

    For sunset, we'll hike out to a spectacular mountain ridge known as Hvíthamar, which offers stunning panoramic views of the Funningsfjørður fjord below.


    Day 4 - Kalsoy Island, Viðoy Island


    5 Day Summer Faroe Islands Photo Tour


    On day four of our adventure, we'll make our way to the Funningur church for a sunrise session. Inaugurated in 1847, this traditional wooden church with its turf roof stands peacefully by the coast, looking out towards Kalsoy Island in the distance. We'll spend our time capturing it in the morning light, before heading back to the hotel for breakfast.

    The rest of the day will be spent at Kalsoy Island, which is home to one of the most astonishing views in the Faroe Islands. We'll make the trek out to the Kallur Lighthouse, an isolated structure that appears to be dwarfed by the expansive landscape surrounding it. Sheer vertical cliff faces here are shrouded in lush green vegetation. It will take us around an hour to get to the viewpoint, though the path is well-built and the ascent is gentle.

    In the evening, we'll have a sunset session at the Viðareiði church on Viðoy Island, standing steadfast against a magnificent green mountain. After that, we'll return to our hotel in Gjógv.


    Day 5 - Streymoy Island


    5 Day Summer Faroe Islands Photo Tour


    This will be the final day of our photography tour in the Faroe Islands.

    We'll rise early for a sunrise session at Tjornuvik village, before travelling to the nearby Streymoy Island where we'll spend some time exploring the settlement of Saksun. There are a number of waterfalls in the area, including the famous Fossá, as well as turf-roofed houses, a beautiful church and magnificent views of the fjord to concentrate on.

    Thereafter, you'll make the journey back to Vágar Island, where your photo guide will drop you off at your accommodation – no doubt with plenty of memories, a wealth of photos and new photography skills to take home from a wonderful five day adventure in the Faroe Islands.
