You can fly from London Stansted to Sorvagur with Atlantic Airways, but it's not cheap.....at the moment July fares are 1100+ Danish Krone (around 1500+ euro). www.atlantic.fo

Check their site for flights from other airports: Atalantic are the only carrier to the Faroes, as far as I can see from the official tourist info site:

Smyril Line ferry info here:

Again, this seems to be the only ferry serving the islands.

You seem to have got your currency rates abit wrong there mate (maybe it was a typo), 1100 DKK is around 150 Euro.

Just incase anyone is still curious, you can either fly from London or Denmark, there's also a ferry from Denmark (i assume that would be cheaper? Depending where you're coming from of course).
If you lived in a neighboring country and was lucky enough to know a fisherman from or going that way, then you could hitch a lift on boat, that would be cheapest way to get there (well you did ask). I think that's proof that cheapest isn't always best.

Yes, it was a typo. Thank you for pointing it out.

Travel Tips for Tórshavn

Faroe Stamps

by MikeAtSea

Postverk Føroya is the postal service of the Faroe Islands and was founded on 1 April 1976 under the Home Rule of the Faroe Islands.
About 290 clerks work for Postverk Føroya. There are 34 post offices, and 90 postal carriers supporting the country's 17,000 households and 48,000 inhabitants - and Faroe Island stamps - therefore make sure you post your postcards from here!

Turf roofs

by JessieLang

Most of the buildings had turf roofs until the 18th Century. The birch bark layer under the sod is essential. It makes the roof waterproof. The sod on top of it holds the bark down, and provides insulation. A beam at the lower edge of the roof keeps the sod in place.

Rúsdrekkasøla Lansins

by jonkb

Alcohol is restricted in Færøyene, in opposition to Denmark, but just like Norway. If you're going to enjoy alcoholic beverages you have to buy them at "Rúsdrekkasøla Landsins". This is the local monopoly controlled by the islands goverment.

Packing List

by Bjorgvin

Wear a waterproof rain jacket and a warm sweater as well as a warm hat or cap. Rubber boots or waterproof hiking boots are a must. Basically these are the same clothes you’d be wearing in Iceland.

Internet and coffee!!!

by Lunaina

When looking for free e-mail checking in Torshavn go to a Coffee and souvenir/clothing shop in the city centre. It is next to the postoffice, in front of the small shop is a parking place. You can enjoy a good coffee there, a nice chat with the staff and check e-mail for free!! The shop has lots of genuine Faroese handicrafts also.
