From FaroeIslands.com: Camping There are no public wilder­ness or common areas in the Faroes. As a consequence, camping is only permitted at designated camp­sites (See page 88). Moreover, it is not permitted to stay overnight in your camp­ing cars along the road, at rest stops, lay-bys or view areas. Be aware that many camping sites are de­...

Although all comments were helpful it seems this question is a bit specific to the situation, so here's the answer I found with research. After contacting a few rental companies in Iceland and talking to the Smyril ferry lines, only one rental company, Reykjavik Cars, will allow the car to go off the island, whereas Smyril said it was ok on their side. ...

In 2017 2.1 million people visited Iceland. In the same year an estimate of 224,000 people visited the Faroe Islands, so all together the islands get significantly fewer visitors, which would indicate that many fewer tourists will be around even in the summer months. In June 2016 Iceland had 221,900, where as Faroe had only 22,570. (June was the only month ...

The Faroe Islands are officially part of Denmark (albeit self-governing). According to Wikivoyage, it's legal to hitch in Denmark, apart from on motorways: Destination boards are recommended. For safety reasons, it is illegal to hitchhike on the expressways, so it is better to use the on ramps and service areas. When crossing by ferry, try to get ...

No, the quickest route is making your way to Edinburgh and flying with Atlantic Airways from there. As pointed out by @Dorothy, direct ferries haven't been around for nearly a decade. This flight can be booked here

Direct ferry is no longer an option, since Smyril discontinued its Shetland link on the Denmark-Iceland route which, until 2008, ran from Lerwick to Tórshavn. You can reach the Faroe Islands: By sea: Smyril Line’s M/S Norröna sails from Hirtshals in the north of Denmark and from Seyðisfjørður in Iceland. By air: on either the Faroe Islands’ national ...

I don't think there are any restrictions in the tax-free system on which kind of items it can be applied to, but as you can read on the page you are linking to in the question, it only applies to goods you are bringing out of the Faroe Islands. If you buy anything valued 300 DKK or above from a retailer participating in the tax-free scheme, you will first ...

The only airline with regular scheduled flights to the Faroe Islands is Atlantic Airways, the flag carrier. There are daily flights to/from Copenhagen and less frequently to/from Keflavik, Bergen and Billund. However, they are probably already fully booked for the days near the eclipse ... Your best bet may be to find a dedicated eclipse tour with a ...

It's entirely possible that it was on the Smyril Line's Norröna - a cargo ship come passenger vessel, and the only one going to the Faroes. It has a cargo capacity of 3,250 tonnes. Failing that, we have another question with detailed information on how to get onboard cargo ships as a passenger.

I know from my trip to New Zealand that it is a potential issue to put a rental car on a ferry. I rented a car via internet and gave as a pickup the south island and as a drop off the northern one. When finally in NZ and trying to pick up the car, they told me that is not possible despite me having a confirmed booking. They claimed that the insurance ...

The Northern Lights can be seen from anywhere in the far northern hemisphere. Only last week, displays were visible in Scotland and northern England. Although present year-round, they can only really be seen when the sky is dark at night – from mid-September to early April. From The Telegraph, 2 November 2016 • 4:15pm.

Two are shown at https://www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/get-support/locate-an-atm.html A DuckDuckGo search for ATM locator shows many options. Above is the second hit. First hit was Visa and it said there were none in 600 kilometers of either of your locations. You can also see them on Open Street Map, or if you want a list, see https://stackoverflow....

There used to be an ATM at the airport, but I am actually not sure if there still is one in the new terminal :-) See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsKqPSE65RI But there are ATMs both in Sørvágur and Miðvágur near the airport. And if you are traveling to Tórshavn with bus, there is one at the busterminal. See also: http://www.visitfaroeislands.com/plan-...

I am not sure why your ask Will I get a Schengen entry stamp when leaving Andorra or Faroe Islands? because as I understand your plans it seem what you need is an exit stamp from Schengen, or an entry stamp for somewhere outside the Schengen agreement. Obtaining such a stamp from Andorra would seem to be easy. From Wikitravel: A souvenir passport stamp may ...

Mark Mayo's answer is correct, however you may of course ask landowners if you can camp on their property. This is unlikely to happen often, so even if the answer is no, it is unlikely to be a hostile no. I remember a blog with some Danes who did this and the landowner thought it quite amusing, rather.

The Andorrans nowadays don't stamp any passports unless you ask for it, and their stamps are not Schengen stamps, nor do they issue exit stamps The Faroe Islands, although not itself part of the Schengen Area, is a territory of a Schengen country and has an open border with the Area, so unless you fly to/from Edinburgh, there are no immigration checks. In ...

I asked two friends who, separately, made the trip from Barcelona Spain to Andorra, and back to Spain. One was traveling on a Canadian passport, the other Turkish. Neither one received a stamp at the Andorra border—but they did not explicitly ask for one either.
