Gjógv. Voted the most beautiful village in the Faroe Islands. It’s not hard to see why.

  1. You’ve done it again Megan, made me put yet another place on my bucket list. I can’t wait to see those cute Puffins. The colours in your photos are brilliant.

    • Thanks Lyn! Glad we could inspire wanderlust!

      It truly is a magical place and I cant rave about the islands enough – I would go back to live there if I could!!! Really hope you find an opportunity to head on over!

  2. This reminds me a lot of Newfoundland- the charming houses, the rolling green hills, and the cute puffins!

    • I’ll have to check into Newfoundland! Anything similar to the Faroes should be on my list :)

  3. Truly great views! And yes, please I want to go! Can I fly tomorrow?

    • Meet you there! I’ll totally go back to show you around :D!

  4. Oh my! Faroe Islands are one of my dream places too!
    And these pics are marvellous. You make me so want to go there straight away.
    I also love that you’ve been able to see/photograph the puffins so close: I’ve also seen them on Farne Island in England but couldn’t portrait them this well.

    • Definitely plan for a trip to the Faroes – it’s such a magical destination and I cannot recommend it enough! It was kind of funny actually, we were so mesmerized by the hundreds of thousands of puffins that we ended up sitting there for hours taking photos – we walked away fairly covered in bird droppings lol!!! Was worth it for the photo ops though :D!

  5. Those colours! Those puffins! That shoreline! The Faroe Islands look just incredible!

    • Highly, highly recommend a visit!! You’ll be ranting on about your trip for years to come!!

  6. Ok, I admit it…I had no idea where the Faroe Islands were before your post and looking it up on Google Maps. You’d think after being all over the world I’d at least know this…but no.

    And Puffins…what is not to love about Puffins!

    Awesome pictures. If you can guarantee a warm non-rainy day I might go. I get separation anxiety from my shorts and sandals when we part for too long…

    • We actually didn’t know about the Faroe Islands either before this trip. We had extra time after Iceland and pulled up Google Maps to see what was in the area. Saw the Faroes and decided it was going to be a winner!!

      Can’t guarantee a non rainy day … it showers a fair bit – though we had excellent weather for the majority of our trip. Lol so if you decide you can part with your shorts and sandals for a few days I promise you’ll have a blast :D!

  7. Those puffins are ADORABLE! I want to go there for the puffins alone! The photos are amazing, everything is just so green!

    • I love, love, love puffins!! They alone made our trip. Go to the island of Mykines for puffins – there are literally thousands of them and it’s the most amazing thing I’ve seen in my life! I’ve also never seen a place so vividly green – we really didn’t edit the above photos much at all!

  8. Gorgeous! The first photo I particularly like – the red roofs and other red accent pop against that vibrant green. Amazing.

    • Thanks Alli! The town of Gjógv really is a treat – looks like something straight out of the pages of a fairytale!!

  9. Awesome collection of pictures Meg of the Faroe Islands! I love the color enhancements you made and of course that puffin picture along with all the others you have shared on social media is a perfect moment. I honestly don’t know much about this part of Europe aside from after seeing all your pictures it makes me want to go there.

    It really looks like a relaxing abode with so much beautiful landscape and widlife to experience. Thanks for sharing and look forward to seeing your other posts/pictures on here.

    • Thanks Chris! It was a photographers dream to be on the islands so we were in our element!! A lot more photos to come (I think we took about 3,000!! I’ve finally just edited them down to 400 of the best!)

  10. I love that it’s so green and that the houses are so colorful there. I’m fearing that the Faroe Islands will become the next big tourist attraction within Europe but at least I hope that the locals will be able to live their lives without too much stirr up from the tourism industry…the puffin pic is gorgeous, somehow I was in Iceland always too late in the season to see them from such a close distance …

    • I’m definitely recommending people ge to the Faroes before tourism does. I’m so glad we had the opportunity to visit while it was still untouched and untamed.

      It would be a tragedy for tourism to ruin such a beautiful corner of the earth – though it’s a tough balance to achieve because it’s also a tragedy not to witness such beauty!!

  11. too many factual info. Says Gjógv, when the village is Funningur. Says the village of Mykines when tha village is Gásadalur – but anywhay, nice islands!

    • Thank John for pointing this out. Will go back through our photos to make sure we have the correct captions with each one :)

  12. Beautiful pictures! We would love to visit the Faroe Islands someday. Looks absolutely gorgeous.

    • It really is one of the most stunning places on earth! I really hope you have the opportunity to visit soon :)
