The Bradt guide to the Faroes is still the only guide on the market dedicated to these unspoilt North Atlantic islands. Known for their towering cliffs and mountainous terrain, the islands offer a unique opportunity to experience nature in the raw. Hike through some of Europe’s most unspoilt landscapes, explore traditional villages complete with turf-roofed houses, cycle round fjords and valleys or watch over 300 species of bird attracted by the abundant fish stocks of the North Atlantic.
