Iwas first introduced to this magical country via instagram. A few adventure photographers that I followed, posted these breathtaking landscapes that I was in awe of. The Faroe Islands looked isolated, wild, undiscovered by tourists. I was captivated, compelled to go and experience the country for myself. An archipelago of 18 islands in the Atlantic Ocean, I wanted to explore the islands by hiking and trekking through the untouched landscapes.
My online search led me to adventure photographer Chris Eye Walker. He was planning the perfect photography-hiking tour. By helicopter, ferry and 4WD, we would visit some well-known spots, along with some hidden gems. This adventure became one of my all time favourite travel experiences with a great group of friends. It is a country that I have only experienced a little and plan to return to in the future.
