The Faroe Islands are no doubt one of the world’s most spectacular places of natural beauty, yet one of Europe’s best kept secrets. They are an archipelago of 18 mountainous islands located halfway between Iceland and Scotland in the North Atlantic Ocean.

The sheer breathtaking beauty of this place at every turn makes you want to stop dead in your tracks and keep staring at it for hours. Given this picturesque landscape, it might seem that travelling by a vehicle is kind of doing injustice to the scenery.  However, travelling the entire region by foot might not be feasible within the limited time you have to visit there. In such a case, exploring the region by cycling might be the best possible solution. It’s a great way to see the mountains, valleys, roads, and all the sights the place has to offer at a perfect pace.

It’s no wonder then that more and more people are choosing to pedal their way through these islands. But to have a great experience it is necessary that one is well informed about every aspect of cycling, like the routes, traffic regulations, bicycle equipment as well as the precautions to be taken on the journey. Check this article which gives detailed information about all aspects of bicycling through the Faroe Islands.

So get your own bike or rent one here and pedal your way into an experience to remember!
