Photography Expedition to Faroe Islands
Unspoilt, Unexplored, Unbelievable is what first comes to mind when we think of Faroe Islands. Faroe Islands or Land of Sheep consist of a total of 779 islands, islets & skerries with 18 being major islands. With a total population of around 50000, not yet popular with tourists, it’s a photographers’ paradise.
Its windswept mountains, crashing waves, and jagged coastlines make it a unique landscape to explore and shoot. If you are a hiker, then it’s a must visit place for you.
Come join us to explore the unparalleled, unexplored and totally virgin beauty called Faroe. We guarantee you will come back with images worth dying for.
