Kayaking in the Faroe Islands

One activity which in recent years has become more popular amongst locals is kayaking. Kayaking is a popular choice as it is suitable for both the experienced and inexperienced and is suitable across all the different islands. Sitting in a kayak on the open ocean is truly a spectacular event. You feel the peacefulness as you are calmly floating through the cliffs and caves while relishing the sweet sound of the sea and wildlife surrounding you. There is not much like it.

Rock climbing in the Faroe Islands

If water sports are not your forté, we offer our REMÓT travelers plenty of other Adventure Activities as well. Take, for instance, outdoor climbing. Faroese people are said to be naturally great rock climbers. The reason is said to be our history of climbing down steep cliffs to gather eggs from birds’ nests. The Faroe Islands is a true climbing gem in the North Atlantic with countless mountains and cliffs. There are many climbing opportunities across the different islands, whether for the experienced climber or a first-timer.

The Faroe Islands in an inflatable boat

A favourite for many of our travellers is discovering the Faroe Islands in inflatable boats. The freedom and flexibility of such boats inspire a sense of adventure, and the pace and intensity give a rush of adrenaline. The boats can be used as a means for transportation to get to the more remote islands, they allow travellers to discover the numerous grottos, or simply just to get up-close to places such as “Rising & Kellingin” or “Drangarnir” sea stacks. If really looking to be a bit more adventurous, you can also suit up in a life jacket suit, and you will be dropped go for a swim in the open Atlantic Ocean.
