TOP 5 REASONS TO MEET IN THE FAROE ISLANDS
The Faroe Islands have a unique combination of modernity and originality. You can find yourself in 5 star conference facilities right next to a 60 million year old theme park called Mother Nature. This setup gives everyone the opportunity to combine meetings and conferences with a long range of team-building activities like sailing, rowing, horseback riding and open air dinners.
The Faroe Islands has unique scenery. A combination of hard rocks, velvety green grass, and dramatic waterfalls. A stunning picture painted in green and blue colors, where your eyes can stretch from the top of a mountain over the endless surrounding ocean at any one time.
2. The Island Culture
The Faroe Islands are remote and isolated, and so the ocean has served as a great defense against dilution of the islands’ original culture. There are many wonderful examples of the original culture. For instance the national costume and the language rooted in the Nordic languages – but a very unique language in its own right.
3. The Authenticity
As a business traveler you can experience the same food, drink the same coffee and buy the same brands as in the same concept stores in most of the world. But as many destinations seem to be getting more alike, the contrast to the Faroe Islands becomes even greater. There is no pre-determined route, no fence to stand behind and no plastic signs telling you what to see and feel. Absorbing reality, as it is in the Faroe Islands, almost forces you to look within yourself to discover who YOU really are.
4. The Remoteness
The Faroe Islands may be close in distance but are far, far from everyday life. Far from stressful obligations. Far from traffic jams and crowds. Far from normality and everyday routines.
5. The Involvement
It is often said that the Faroe Islands have no tourists – only guests. People are welcoming and open, and nature invites everyone to participate. The nature is not just something you look at. It’s a place for being – for hiking, angling, diving, sailing and absorbing.
Come and visit the Faroe Islands with your sport, cultural or business event!
