Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands are one of those places that have always made me dream: dramatic, epic, and wonderful. From Streymoy to Vágar, Borðoy to Kalsoy, each island reveals its unique charm and raw beauty, perfect for landscape photography.

My trip begins on Vágar Island, where the stunning Drangarnir Sea Arch and the enchanting waterfalls of Múlafossur and Bøsdalafossur showcase the natural wonders of this archipelago nestled in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Streymoy, the largest island in the Faroe Islands, seduced me with its unspoilt and wild landscapes, such as the Fossá waterfall or the black sandy beach of the village of Tjørnuvík.

The remote village of Saksun, with its tiny grass-roofed houses, also amazed me. I felt like I was in a fairy tale. All these places, so far from the world, are perfect spots for landscape photography. With time almost at a standstill, I enjoyed having time to compose my photographs.

The island of Kalsoy, in the north of the Faroe archipelago, is home to the legendary Kallur lighthouse. This tiny lighthouse stands in the middle of a mist-covered landscape. Once I reached the top, I discovered that it was built on the side of vertiginous cliffs, which made my head spin. This place was my favourite in terms of landscape photography. The framing possibilities are endless and the view from the summit is simply magnificent.

The wild jewels of the northern Faroe Islands, Borðoy and Viðoy are two magnificent islands perfect for landscape photography. From the panoramic views of Mount Klakkur to the rugged landscapes of Viðoy, each place is beautiful, wild and raw. Nature is a true artist.

The island of Eysturoy also offers wild landscapes and picturesque villages such as Eiði, Gjógv and Funningur. For me, the most beautiful viewpoint is Hvithamar. Close to the village of Gjógv, Hvithamar can be reached by a short hike. The view from the top of the rock is nothing short of epic. It’s like being in the Lord of the Rings. The surrounding peaks are covered in clouds and the water in the fjord is turquoise blue. But what more could you ask for when you’re a landscape photographer?
