Many of the area's dining and accommodation options can be found on the picturesque main island, where 90 percent of the population resides.

Your sightseeing in Faroe Islands options include long walks across the interior, where you'll have to brave shifty weather, and schooner or wooden sloop expeditions to see the fjords.
