Føroyar

Head north from Scotland and about half way between Great Britain and Iceland is Føroyar, the Faroe Islands.

These islands, shredded by glaciers and beaten by the sea, is all that remains of the massive basalt shield that used to cover this part of the North Atlantic. Settled only once by the Vikings, todays Faroese are the direct descendants of those intrepid men and women.

Like a magical land from Middle Earth, the islands defy normalcy. Stunning view after stunning view is nearly overwhelming.
