A paradise at the Faroe Islands

Few hours flight catapult us in a such unique reality in Europe.

During one of our several journeys to the Faroe Islands we had the chance to stay in paradise: the Guesthouse Gjààrgardur, a complex in a particular place. Not to be missed.

The Faroe Islands place themselves on the map tracing a triangle among Scotland, Norway and Iceland.

A very little archipelago of just 18 islands: only 17 are inhabited (some of them maybe by a only family unit).

The complex is at the Faroe Islands, in the Gjògv village, on Eysturoy Island.

The position is special.

We reach it late in the evening.

We’ve landed with the last Atlantic Airways flight in the evening: it’s the only airlines company linking the islands from Copenhagen to the Vargar airport in the capital.

An airport that…in this period is active 4 times a day.

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

Yeah, just like that.

Airlines links to the Faroe Islands

It’s a little lost airport which is alive to coincidence with the 4 daily flights now present. Some days a week it exist also some links to Iceland.

In a few minutes we go out the airport and by the rented car we go towards our guesthouse.

The roads are the first thing that astonishes us.

Wide, smooth-flowing and well-indicated.

We thought to be in a lost place. On the contrary, in a very few time, after have crossed one of the many underwater tunnels linking the islands, we are on the island.

It makes an impression to run the underwater tunnel, but only thinking about what we have above our head…actually apart from a little slope only the map is telling us we are in the middle of the sea.

We arrived to the Norðskala village (you will have strictly to call it town if you won’t make the inhabitants be angry) and now the road becomes that one of a lost place…like we expected!

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

We have two possibilities to reach Gjògv: the roads have the same length, more or less, and we opt for that passing by Eiði.

Of course, the following day we’ll find out the quickest one was the other one.

But this is the most panoramic one, so, despite the tiredness, we get lost taking photographs.

After the village the road is getting narrower, becomes one-lane and drops straights to the sea.

A breathtaking view like many other here at the Faroe Islands.

The road climb up more and more, narrows more and more, the parapets are practically not-existent, we are in the middle of the snow (we are in October) in a bare landscape, very alike Iceland.

There aren’t any plants. And is getting dark.

Guesthouse at the Faroe Islands

Some kilometres (they seem endless) and finally we arrive to our destination, moving non-stop aside sheep in the middle of the road.

The village has about thirty houses, not more and it’s not difficult to identify the guesthouse.

The owner is a very  kind lady and she welcomes us assuring to us having prepared a super, hyper, wonderful, very beautiful and special room.

We look at her a bit sceptic and she leads the way using the cell: it’s dark now and outside there is no artificial lighting, on the little path uphill taking to the room in the separate building, in the raised position compared to the main building.

The room astonishes us positively.

It’s very beautiful and restored a short time ago.

Wide panels, heating at a floor level and a big TV. A paradise at the Faroe Islands.

But only in the following morning we have got the surprise to well understand what her exaggerated adjectives meant.

Roby wakes up, opens a bit the windows to look outside and the light flooding the room, or better his astonishment exclamation, wake us up immediately.

Breathtaking landscapes and views

A scenery to admire ahead of us!

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

Clouds are chasing with the sun just piped out creating wonderful light games in a really amazing sea, cliffs and rocks view.

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

This is the main reason for which it is worth it to sleep at least one night in this place.

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

Remember to ask for the room A1, the first one of the complex, with the biggest panels and overlooking the sea.

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

Then the complex has quite quick Wi-Fi in the common areas.

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

Breakfast is included and there’s also the possibility to have lunch, to have dinner or make sandwiches and packed lunches for the excursions and trekking.

paradise at the Faroe Islands stay

What else? Nothing. The Faroe Islands have to be discovered. There is nothing left to do but wish you a wonderful stay in paradise at the Faroe Islands!
