ELOPING TO THE FAROE ISLANDS GUIDE

Eloping in the Faroe Islands is a beautiful choice in location if you’re looking for a true adventure with dramatic and beautiful scenery.

The Faroe Islands are set between Iceland, Norway & Scotland and consist of 18 little Islands.

The Faroe Islands are similar to Iceland in many ways, but quieter and with less tourism.

The climate is described as ‘Maritime Subarctic’ as winters are relatively mild 3°C and summers 13°C. During the summer, you have sunlight for nearly 20 hours compared to winter 5 hours.
