The Faroe Islands are a recommendable destination for the MICE business. More and more event planners become aware of the potential the islands have to offer. Its undisturbed nature, the healthy fresh air and many other circumstances make the country especially well-suited for healthy meetings.

Veitshöchheim, 4 November 2015 – The Faroe Islands, a still little known but rising destination for the MICE business, are located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean between Iceland and Norway. The 18 tiny islands are perfect for meetings, events and incentives. Planners can find there top facilities and services for conferences and meetings – different five-star venues such as the 5-star Nordic House that has space for up to 600 sitting guests or 4-star Hotel Hafnia which has function rooms of different sizes for up to 100 participants.

With their green environment, the healthy air and undisturbed nature, the Faroe Islands offer the perfect circumstances for healthy meetings. A growing number of organizations are increasingly choosing the islands for conferences, events and workshops and combine them with outdoor and team building activities. Such activities may include, hiking in the Faroese mountains and forests, sailing, rowing, fishing or horseback riding.

One essential aspect for healthy meetings is that healthy food is offered during coffee and lunch breaks. Meetings and conferences often last long and can be exhausting so that the right meal is important, in order to stay active and concentrated. The Faroese hotel’s restaurants put emphasis on that. Most of them have food on the menu that is based on local produce like fish, lamb, seafood and herbs, without artifical additives.

In the restaurant KOKS, located on the top of Tórshavn at the Hotel Føroyar, guests can taste New Nordic food (New Nordic Manifesto from 2004) with primarily local raw materials. The hotel received “The Nordic Prize” for the best restaurant in the Nordic countries. Spending the lunch break there provides new energy for the rest of the working day.

In Hotel Hafnia’s restaurant, the chefs create Faroese specialities in perfect combination with the international cuisine. For example, the varied and delicious fish buffet is a highlight: the Faroese fish is considered to be the best in the world due to the stable low marine temperatures (6 to 12 degrees) that the Faroese waters have. It is not only the food which is healthy but also the water: the quality of the spring water is exceptional because it is filtered through the basalt mountains and famous for its clarity and delicate taste.

The Faroe Islands are a destination which should be taken into consideration when planning an event or incentive. The right contact persons are Visit Faroe Islands and Visit Tórshavn, who are the official coordinators of MICE related activities. They work together with a large network of suppliers which makes organizing an event easy. The team is exhibiting at ibtm at stand F05 and is also on site at tmf-connect networking event on Tuesday, 17 November.
