Atlantic Airways has just launched sales for the first-ever direct route from the US to the Faroe Islands.  

With stunning unspoiled nature, fresh air, world class gastronomy and a rich cultural history, the Faroe Islands are a hidden gem in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and are highlighted by the international travel press as one of the next great nordic destinations. The Islands are sandwiched between Nordic neighbours Iceland and Norway, offer vast, untamed and spectacular landscapes that are immediately impressive and undeniably compelling.

Travellers are often made small by the grandiosity of the natural environment; the daunting sea cliffs, the unforgiving waves that ripple against the coastline, the lush green valleys surrounded by steep mountains.

The airport is situated on the island of Vagar, only 45 minutes by car from the capital, Torshavn.
