What persuaded us to travel to the windswept, treeless Faroe Islands at the end of (our) winter (not theirs) some friends were asking – scratching their heads…?
Not the nicest time of year but as lockdowns are easing and due to a early season offer from the Danish ferry operator Smyril we decided to book and go.
During the winter days can be as short as five hours.
The islands are generally windy, cloudy and cool throughout the year. It’s not uncommon for one location to experience rain, then snow, followed by bright sunshine an hour later. We literally experienced all four seasons in one day! Luckily I had packed our ski gear – better be prepared.
